Issues with installing under all Linux Distributions

OpenOffice won't install

Postby sharpertongue » Sat Aug 31, 2013 5:09 am


I visited the download page on and downloaded the most recent version for my system which was OpenOffice 4.0 for Linux 32-bit (RPM). Then I followed the Linux RPM-based Installation instructions from ... tions.html but wasn't able to install.
After doing cd to the RPMS subdirectory I entered the command rpm -Uvih *rpm but this was the output:
bash: rpm: command not found

Help please?

Greetings and welcome to the community forum!

If you're using Ubuntu Linux, you need the .deb package(s): Ubuntu doesn't use rpm.
