How do I install OpenOffice on Lubuntu?

So, I looked it up and one person said to type sudo apt-get install openoffice.org, but when I did that, I got the error:
Package "openoffice.org" has no installation candidate

So I was hoping someone knew of a way for me to install it on my Lubuntu system. I mainly need it as a replacement for word and powerpoint, and I know people say LibreOffice is better, and I do believe that, however every time I open LibreOffice, it crashes upon opening. Not sure what to do here. :/.

Have you read the installation instructions on the Apache OpenOffice site? See https://www.openoffice.org/download/com ... html#linux

How to fix LibreOffice in many cases:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
killall soffice.bin
mv ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user.backup
libreoffice

if the restart of libreoffice shows any error messages on the command line, copy them and share with us
