trying to install LibreOffice Linux - deb (x86), version 3.5.6, English (US). Downloads OK but when I double click on the downloaded file it brings up a window saying launch application which does not contain LibreOffice. What do I do now?

Sorry I forgot to mention that I am using Puppy Linux, slacko 5.3.3

In that case I would recommend to try it with the Slackware packages of LibreOffice from AlienBob: http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/s...ice/pkg/13.37/

Did you follow the installation instructions from the website to decompress the *.deb file, navigate to the appropriate subdirectories of the decompressed contents, and install the software using the dpkg -i *.deb command as root?

Which won't work, since Slacko Puppy is Slackware based, not Ubuntu based (as is Lucid Puppy).

Whoops! I realized earlier today that I had neglected to double-check the distro on this thread.

Thanks.
