If you don't want any desktop integration because you want to use the new suite as a secondary suite, rename/remove the desktop-ingegration.deb file _before_ running dpkg and everything *should* be fine IMHO.
Oh, that was sloppy posting because renaming won't prevent that file from being installed together with the other *.deb files (unless you renamed the deb extension). This _may_ fail if there is some other suite installed. 1) Do nothing and run sudo dpkg -i *.deb if there is no other suite owning /usr/bin/soffice 2) Move the desktop-integration.deb to the trash bin if you don't want the desktop integration for this office suite. 3) If you want desktop integration for the newly installed suite AND there is an /usr/bin/soffice file from another suite, then you should indeed make a subdirectory and move that particular deb file before running sudo dpkg -i *.deb in the DEBS directory without additional switch. This should run without error. And then run sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite *.deb in that subdirectory in order to make this office suite the primary one overwriting any /usr/bin/soffice. The overwrite switch applies only to this particular package with this particular problem when there is another suite owning /usr/bin/soffice. The desktop-integration*.deb should reside in a separate subdirectory but the LO guys always know better. Simply applying the overwrite switch to all the *.deb packages may resolve unforeseen dependencies by overwriting essential files of alternative office suites which would damage these installations.
