Openoffice 2.0


Hi,
As Oo2 now became available in etch, I installed it via aptitude. Well, everything seemed to go well, no troubles with depedencies a.s.o., also no questions about configurations, a smooth routine it seemed, I was happy.
Then I wanted to have a look at it and opened the relevant menu-entry in KDE. Well, yes, writer, draw and friends were there, but NO setup or printer-administration. And when I then opened the writer, indeed everything was like a pristine piece of land, nothing of my old 1.1.3 was there anymore.
Okay, that's not the main purpose of this writing, I succeeded with quite some sweat to bring this new version up to what I previously had.
But now the real question: as well root as well the other users on my computer now have an old (1.1.3) Oo in their environments and also the new 2.0. I nowhere detected a possibility to deinstall the old version cleanly, no 'repair' as stated in the readme or whatsoever. Apt-get remove works splendid, it removes the NEW Oo but leaves the old version still sitting there and now more or less inaccesible, as some symlinks are dead. How can I get rid of 1.1.3 completely? In /var/cache/apt/archives nothing is anymore contained, only 2.0.
Thanks for your tips already.

OpenOffice 1.1.x and 2.x are kept separate so you can't upgrade by replacing 1.1.x. They therefore use separate profile folders, but you can copy over most of your customised files (dictionary, autocorrect files, templates) to the new 2.0 profiles.

Thanks, that was more or less what I meant "with sweat". Although I had to adapt still quite a lot manually, but never mind.
But the original question still stands: how can I remove _all_ of Oo 1.1.3 via aptitude (or even apt-get) from my harddisk, not only from the home-directory of the users?
Do you also have a suggestion for that?

Thanks, good idea. Installed it along with deborphan. Cleaned up quite a lot of "superfluous" files.
I should have installed it considerably earlier.
