OOO 3.1 in Lenny

Hi All,

This post explains how to install OpenOfficeOrg > 3.0. By default, Lenny comes with OOO 2.4.

1. Create a file /etc/apt/preferences and add this bolded text in it.
Package: *
Pin: release a=lenny-backports
Pin-Priority: 200

2. Then run apt-get update as root.
3. Open Synaptic and search for Ure - The Uno runtime environment.
4. Note that the version of Ure to be installed should be greater than 1.5.
5. Finally if you already have OOO older version installed, you will find that - the very moment you select Ure 1.5 for installation - your OOO will be upgraded to 3.1.0

Hope this helps you a lot.
