Hi Henry,

I like using the Debian packaging for OpenOffice. I add the following
line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ftp.openoffice.tuxfamily.org/openoffice unstable main contrib

What is cool is there is a package called openoffice.org-debian-files,
and each function of openoffice can be involked via command line using
the scripts provided in the package:


So, to invoke the spreadsheet, run oocalc. Hope this helps!

BTW: Does anyone think this thread should be moved to vox-tech?
