Hi :)
Ahhh, tabbed auto-complete is really helpful.  

On a unix-based command-line, so that's any Gnu&Linux just start typing a command or pathname or 
file-name and after about 2 or 3 characters press the tab key.  It then lists all the relevant 
things that start with those 2 or 3 characters and copies everything you have typed so far onto a 
new line so that you can ignore all the suggestions and carry on typing if you want.  If there is 
only 1 suggestion then it just fills in all the rest for you.  Errr, i dunno how to select say the 
5th option except by using the mouse to copy&paste.  The keyboard short-cut for paste doesn't work 
but mouse paste is always good :)  

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Ubuntu Libreoffice

here is my "simple" way to help with the typing errors I sometime get.  My fingers seem to love to 
press the wrong letters.

copy the compressed download file to you home folder, using you file manager/browser.  Nautilus, 
Dolphin, or whatever you default "file browser" is.

This is the file I use for 64-bit Ubuntu 12.04. "LibO_3.6.4_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz"

Next you right-click on it in you file manager to uncompress it. Use the default "Archive 
Manager", or Ark, or whatever is your default archiver manager/un-compressor.

That will create the folder with the long name,  At this point I do something a little different 
to ease my typing skills.  I right-click on the folder and rename it to "LibO" to ease my typing 
its long name in the Terminal.  That way you do not have such a long set of characters to type in 
for the folder's name in the Terminal.

In Terminal or "Konsole", etc.,  I type:

cd LibO
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Then do the same steps for the help and language packs, as needed, except for the "cd 
desktop-integration" part.

You do not need to rename the folders, but I do that to stop errors in my typing of the "long" 
name of the folder.  I know there are some other ways of doing this, but for me it is the simplest 
way for installing LO on Ubuntu.

The only hard part is removing LO 3.5.7 before I install LO 3.6.4.  I keep forgetting the Terminal 
commands and need to use the Synaptic Package Manager to find and remove the LO packages.

Of course, I then make sure I reinstall all of the extensions I want, just to make sure they are 
there for me.

Hey guys

I'm back after what seems like ages! anyway encountered a problem which
is probably due to inexperience but anyhow.

I was wondering if there was a simple way to compile a Tar ball version
of LO on ubuntu? I've searched all documentation but its doing my head
