The Apache OpenOffice suite has been uploaded to Sparky repos now.

What is OpenOffice?

Apache OpenOffice is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose.

The OpenOffice packages were available to install before via APTus AppCenter from a 3rd party repos, but… The 3rd party repos is out of date, so the latest, original packages from the project developer have been moved to Sparky repos now.

If you’d like to install OpenOffice you MUST uninstall LibreOffice before:
sudo apt purge libreoffice libreoffice-*
sudo apt autoremove

Then you can install OpenOffice (Sparky 6 & 7 amd64/i386) :
sudo apt update
sudo apt install openoffice-brand-en-us openoffice-brand-writer openoffice-brand-calc openoffice-brand-impress openoffice-brand-base openoffice-brand-draw openoffice-brand-math openoffice-pyuno openoffice-ooofonts openoffice-ooolinguistic openoffice-debian-menus
