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

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

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

Thank you for your attention.
