Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

OpenOffice 3.2.1 (bug-fix release) was released almost 3 months ago but only now is available for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx users, in the lucid-proposed official repository.

To upgrade to OpenOffice 3.2.1 in Ubuntu 10.04 you need to go to System > Administration > Software Sources and on the Updates tab, make sure you have the "Pre-release updates (lucid-proposed)" option checked:

lucid proposed

Then simply run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Or wait for the Update Manager to prompt you with the OOo 3.2.1 update.

Important: the proposed repository is created for a reason: packages in this repository might not be stable.
