Updating OpenOffice 3.1.0 to 3.1.1 in Kubuntu 8.04

I found the update from OpenOffice 3.1.0 to 3.1.1 to be pretty simple. When I run an openoffice program, there is this Update notification on the top right of the window. So I clicked and it download the update. After finished downloading, I clicked “Install”, but as expected it didn’t work.

So I went to the folder where it downloaded the updates in *.tar.gz file. I unzipped the file using “tar xzvf file.tar.gz”, and go the folder OOXXXX something. In that folder, you will find a script “./update”. So simply run it using root privileges.

sudo ./update

And it updates your current openoffice 3.1.0 to 3.1.1. That’s it!
