You need to provide some information, other than "Need help. Seems to be much more difficult".

What problems are you having?

I have OpenOffice in the /tmp folder. I am just not sure how to install it from the Package Manager.

Where did you download Open Office, what is the filename, what steps did you take or what instructions are you following, what error messages are you getting?
