    Question What's the command to install openoffice.org?

    What's the command to install openoffice.org from dvd or internet?
    Doesn't work:
    Code:
    zypper install openoffice.org

    Assuming you're a newbie just use the GUI (YAST) as it's much easier. See YaST/Modules/Software Management - openSUSE

    If you want to learn to use the command line way then read Zypper/Usage/11.1 - openSUSE (especailly Zypper/Usage/11.1 - openSUSE)

    Do you mean installing from a repository or installing a build downloaded from OOos home site? For the first option, use, yes, Yast. For the second, unpack the files from the respective archive and run:
    Code:
    rpm -ivh *.rpm
    with superuser privileges.

    Actually, installing openoffice from zypper isn't far off from the command you had.

    Code:
    zypper in openoffice_org
    Note the underscore instead of the period. Zypper will take care of the rest of the dependencies, additional packages, etc.

    But I do recommend using the YaST Software Manager over zypper, especially if you are a new user.

    Hope this helps.
    My personal philosophy:
    The only way you won't find something is if you stop looking.
