A lazy way:

Gnome menu->System->Administration->Add/Remove Software
click Office, check OpenOffice.org packages
Press Apply

you can use this command:

sudo yum -y install openoffice.org*

this will install the entire openoffice.org suite which is like a 687MB download instead you can install only the most used parts of openoffice:

sudo yum -y install openoffice.org-writer openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-base openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-math

I installed OpenOffice as described here:
http://download.openoffice.org/commo...ons.html#linux

For desktop integration I went to the desktop-integration directory and installed the one for redhat since the one for suse failed.

rpm -Uvih openoffice.org3.2-redhat-menus-3.2-9472.noarch.rpm

This seemed to have worked nicely. All the OpenOffice icons now show up under Applications - Office.

Re: Install openoffice on Fedora 11

First thing: This thread is over a year old. Things have changed and you really should start a new one when you have a problem.

Second thing: If you're using F15, OpenOffice has been replaced by LibreOffice. Try looking for that. Essentially identical. Google the reasons for the shift to LibreOffice.
Also, a search of recent threads would have helped you too: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=263849

Re: Install openoffice on Fedora 11

The code posted by Dangermouse to install office/productivity is still working, and will install Libre Office on Fedora 15 and later.
