remove unwanted openoffice.org-1.1.2 installed from apt-get


hi all
i'd like to run a minimalistic debian sarge with openoffice 1.1.2 features like writer, calc, impress to replace m$. and i don't want programs like draw, math, html, etc. i apt-get install openoffice.org into my sarge kernel 2.6.7, so now all those things are on there. is there a easy way to remove those math/draw programs in openoffice? (preferably without runnin the setup program and then having to have an additional ~256 MB temporary memory? i'm pushed for space)

thanks!

You know OpenOffice.org is the whole program. It's no Office suite. If you open oowriter you'll notice that you can just as well open a impress or calc file but just that oowriter just starts OpenOffice.org as text editor instead of general (openoffice) or calc or impress.

If space is critical for you, then maybe OpenOffice.org isn't the software for you. As darkleaf has already mentioned, OpenOffice.org is one big thing, you can't break it up as you can MS Office.

Maybe you should look into AbiWord, GnuMeric and something else for presentations (there is some alternative software, but the last time I looked - 3 years ago - it wasn't very good). You may also want to look into KOffice if you're running KDE.

thanks for the reply!

yeah, I know but i was wondering it there were ways to remove the files from /usr manually for more space, or if it's possible to. it feels like those things can be seperated on their own..
