Hello, everyone.

Can Apache OO be installed alongside LO (to run at different times)?

LO [Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)] on Linux Mint 13.

Yes. But I *highly* recommend that you install AOOo 4.x in a parallel
folder instead of installing it via the standard 'dpkg -i *.deb'
command. I've found that AOOo 4.x takes over *all* mime associations for
opendoc's. It's not too much of a problem re-associating the documents
via Nautilus or Nemo, but it totally screws up other applications like
Firefox & SeaMonkey. I've even tried leaving out
openoffice-gnome-integration_4.0.1-5_amd64.deb, but it still screws up
my mime associations.

Note: earlier versions of OOo/AOOo didn't do this, but AOOo seems to
have bundled

Installing a parallel version is pretty simple, just follow the
instructions here:



Then create a panel launcher pointing to the folder where you do the
install, example:

You can of course move the AOOo folder to /opt to allow other users to
use it if you wish.
