Welcome to the new Linux Foundation Forum!

looking for Linux distr with OpenOffice Base insid

Ubuntu don't has Openoffice Base inside (the database manager)

Which Linux distro has the full OpenOffice package?


  • You can install OpenOffice Base from the 'Add/Remove Application' Gnome user interface.

    I think that the package is not included in the default installation because it's not used that often (and Ubuntu still runs out of a standard cd).

    Ubuntu for some reason has this Add/Remove applications hid away in some wierd menues. You can launch Synaptic by typing
    $ sudo synaptic
    in your terminal.

    Tough Synaptic is not the same as the Add/Remove Applications thingy but they do the same job.
  • Or you can Alt + F2 and type "gnome-app-install" ^_^
  • Try to start a Terminal. In Gnome:Application->Accessories->Terminal .

    Then type into your Terminal, if you use sudo:

    $sudo apt-get install openoffice.org-base

    In the most case, the distributions doesn't use sudo per default. Then type:
    #apt-get install openoffice.org-base

    Have a nice day!
