In this tutorial we will see how to easily install OpenOffice 4.1.1 under Ubuntu or Linux Mint. To make the installation easier, I created a simple bash script that will automatically download and install Apache OpenOffice in just a few terminal commands.

Using this script, you can install OpenOffice 4.1.1 under the following distros:
  • Ubuntu 14.10/14.04 or older
  • Linux Mint 17.1/17 or older

First of all, you need to remove LibreOffice completely using these two simple commands:

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice* 
sudo apt-get autoremove

Next, start the installation of OpenOffice (32 & 64-bit platforms) using these commands:

cd /tmp 
wget http://tinyurl.com/n3b2uzv -O openoffice 
chmod +x openoffice 
sudo sh openoffice

Then use the Dash to start OpenOffice:

To uninstall OpenOffice, run this command:
