You can download OOo_2.0.0_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz here:

http://linux.softpedia.com/progDownl...nload-253.html

This is a binary install, not a source install. So you cd to where the download file is and install it with this command:

tar -xzf OOo_2.0.0_LinuxIntel_install.tar.gz

You need to uninstall any old versions of OpenOffice.org that you have, untar the OOo 2.0 packages and install the rpms as root. If you don't know exactly what to do then post back with the exact path where you saved the OOo 2 package.

Start a terminal session e.g konsole or gnome-terminal, switch to root by entering "su" and roots password, then do
Code:
#cd /home/michael/Documents/OpenOffice/RPMS
#rpm -Uvh *.rpm desktop-integration/*mandriva*

So where exactly is the OOo directory because that error means the directory does not exist. When you downloaded the tar.gz file and extracted it, you should have ended up with a directory called OOO680_m3_native_packed-2_en-US.8968 is that the one you renamed to OpenOffice?

Yes. Well it was like OOo.

It would have been better to uninstall the old one first like I said in my first post. Anyway start the Mandrake Control Center -> Software -> Management -> Remove Software and search for openoffice, remove all openoffice.org 1.x packages and leave those for 2.x.
