/>Instructions for Downloading and Installing <br />
+Apache OpenOffice.org 3.4 on Linux</h2>
+
+
+<h2> Linux Installations<a name="linux"></a></h2>
+The following preinstallation steps are recommended for Linux distributions. These should
be taken to assure that you
+have a clean install of Apache OpenOffice due to internal considerations and/or the installation
of LibreOffice, if it
+exists, on your system.
+
+<ol>
+<li> Check to see if LibreOffice has re-routed the OpenOffice binary to itself instead.<br>
+ Type <code>"whereis soffice"</code> from a console.</br>
+ <br>If this is symlinked to libreoffice, remove the symlink. (see your favorite reference
for how to do this)</br>
+ <br>This will NOT remove LibreOffice, this will only disallow LibreOffice to redirect
the normal OpenOffice binary --
+ typically <code>/usr/bin/soffice</code> -- to libreoffice instead.</br></li>
+ <li>Remove your old version of OpenOffice completely.<br>
+ The safest way to do this for most users is to use a GUI package manager to search for OpenOffice
and remove
+ all packages.</br></li>
+</ol>
+
+<h3>Linux RPM-based Installation (command line)<a name="linux-rpm"></a></h3>
+<h4>Prerequisites</h3>
+
+<p>If you want Java integration, you want to make sure you have the latest
+JRE installed. It should be at least JRE 1.6. You can find the JRE for Linux
+at the <a href="http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp"> Java JRE
+for Linux</a> download site.  Alternatively, a JRE might be included on the
+installation media of your distro as part of a complete Java development
+environment.</p>
+
+
+<h4>Installation Steps</h4>
+
+<ol>
+
+  <li>
+    Review the
+    <a href="http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/sys_reqs_aoo34.html">
+    System Requirements</a>
+  </li>
+  <li><a href="http://www.openoffice.org/download">Download your favorite Linux
version of Apache OpenOffice</a></a></li>
+  <li>Review helpful information and installation options in the 
+  <a href="http://documentation.openoffice.org/setup_guide2/index.html#12">Setup Guide.</a></li>
+  <li>
+    Unpack the downloaded image to prepare for installation. <br/>
+    The following command should work: <code>tar -xvzf "linux package name".tar.gz</code>
<br/>
+    where "linux package name" is the beginning part of the archive you just downloaded.<br
/>
+    <br />
+    This will create an installation directory.<br />
+    The name of the installation directory will likely be
+    the language abbreviation for the install set, e.g. en-US.
+  <li>
+    <tt>su</tt> to root, if necessary, and navigate to Apache OpenOffice
+    installation directory (the unpacked archive).<br/>
+    <em>You will likely need to be root to run the rpm command to install the software.</em>
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    <tt>cd</tt> into the RPMS subdirectory of the installation directory.<br/>
+    You should see a lot of rpms here and one sub-directory called 
+    "desktop-integration".
+  </li>  
+  <li>
+    Install this new version by typing <tt>rpm -Uvih *rpm</tt>.<br/>
+    By default, this will install OpenOffice in your <tt>/opt</tt>
+    directory.<br/>
+    <br>Alternatively, you can use a GUI package installer, reference the installation
directory, and
+    install all rpms at the top level. This may also aid you in determing any dependency
problems if they exist.</br>
+    <p>    
+  </li>
+  <li>
+    Install the desktop integration features for your setup. <br />
+     <tt>cd</tt> to <tt>desktop-integration</tt> in the installation
directory,<br />
+    and, depending on your package manager/system, install the appropriate desktop interface
using RPM.
+  </li>
+  <li>Finally, start up Apache OpenOffice 3.4 to insure it's working.</li>
+</ol>
+
+<h3>Linux deb-based Installation (command line)<a name="linux-deb"></a></h3>
+
+<h4>Prerequisites</h4>
+
+<p>If you want Java integration, you want to make sure you have the latest
+JRE installed. It should be at least JRE 1.6. You can find the JRE for Linux

+    You should see a lot of debs here and one sub-directory called 
+    "desktop-integration".
+  </li>  
+  <li>
+    Install this new version by typing <tt>sudo dpkg -i *.deb</tt>.<br/>
+    By default, this will install Apache OpenOffice in your <tt>/opt</tt>
+    directory.<br/>
+    <br>Alternatively, you can use a GUI package installer, reference the installation

+<h3>Packages for Linux Distributions (Not compiled by Apache OpenOffice developers)
+<a name="other_linux"></a></h3>
+	
+<p> The Linux downloads provided on the Apache OpenOffice site (mirrors) are generic
for 
+	either the RPM- or DEB-based package managers. If you have experience in directly installing
+	these types of packages on your system, one of these types of installs should work for you.
+	They are not specific to a particular Linux distribution.</p>
+
+<p>Many Linux distributions now include a version of Apache OpenOffice in their
+own native package manager format (.rpm, .deb, etc.) either from their own repositories
+or community repositories which they support. These packages have
+been built and are supported by the distributions' own teams or community members, not by
+Apache OpenOffice. Some distributions have strict policies around licensing,
+which means they have chosen to disable parts of Apache OpenOffice which rely
+on software which does not meet their criteria (e.g. the Fedora rpms have
+disabled the parts of Apache OpenOffice which require Java).</p>
+	
+	
+	
+<p><b>Note:</b> Please check carefully before using a third-party build
that
+it does actually include all the parts of Apache OpenOffice that you will
+require. Replacing a 'native' distribution build with the full Apache OpenOffice
+original build can be tricky, but can usually be successfully accomplished by
+completely removing the existing 'native' install. </p>
