Recovery tools for GNU/Linux work on all distributions and even if they wouldn't out of the box you could boot a Live CD like KNOPPIX or HELIX. Look for Photorec. If, after reading the docs, you would like more information you could search LQ for threads concerning photorec (there's a lot of them). For next time OOo also has a "Always save backup" configuration option.
