OpenOffice beta version installation on Debian

I just installed the latest OpenOffice beta version on my Debian machine. First, I tried to convert the RPM packages distributed on the OpenOffice site with “fakeroot alien \*.rpm”, which first worked flawless but failed when trying to start any of the OpenOffice applications (“The component Manager is not available”). Then, I found Debian packages at which I had to install with “dpkg -i –force-architecture \*.deb” because they use “intel” as architecture for whatever reason. But, now, the OpenOffice applications start up successfully 🙂
