AOO Linux binaries are rather "universal", you can install them without much
trouble. Anyway, you can try rpm2cio:

- untar the AOO file
- in a terminal, cd to the folder with the rpm packages, and exectue the
following command:

for i in *.rpm; do rpm2cpio $i | cpio -idv; done

This will extract all the content of the RPM packages in a folder named opt
Then simply copy that folder content to /opt

sudo cp -rf opt/* /opt/

You can do the same for the RPM in the folder RPMS/desktop-integration

Something similar can be done for DEB based distros.
