Is anyone running open office on their pixelbook?

Postby jacobfrey121 » Mon Jun 01, 2020 1:57 pm

I'm a total linux noob, but i've been trying to install open office via the terminal, and I'm having no luck. Is it even possible to run open office on the pixelbook? If so, can someone point me in the right direction?

Why OpenOffice? According to their website, this Google thingy comes with the following productivity apps:
AutoCAD
Google Calendar
Evernote
Google Docs
Google Drive
Google Keep
Gmail
Google Sheets
Google Slides
Lightroom
Nebo
Slack
Squid

Fortunately, Google re-enabled support for ODF in December 2014. That means you can leverage the collaborative capabilities of Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, then export your completed work to a file in an open, non-proprietary format.

The ideal document would be a file that works -- and looks -- the same in all applications. I tested how well an ODF file transfers information between Google Docs and Microsoft Word Online.

Spoiler alert: On balance, both Google Docs and Word Online handle ODT files reasonably well.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.
