After extracting files from downloaded file I did try all three different install commands (but I got "Invalid option" or "Command not found". See attached console image. Ups... I need Karma3?? for upload image. Well.. With su rpm -Uvh *.pm I got invalid option -U. With su -c yum install *rpm I got bash yum command not found. with urpmi *rpm I got bash urpmi command not found. Is there another way to install LO 4.2.3??? Thanks. By the way, my system is Lunix eeepc i686 (debian 4.1.1-21) KDE 3.4.2. 2GB Ram. 40GB SSD. Thanks.

Now I see.. I did download deb file File extraction OK. According to readme file I did sudo dpkg -i *.deb command with apparently no problem.. it just full my screen with text and no error messages. Readme file says no more commands are needed. I should have LO icons in my desktop applications office menu but I do not have them. I did reboot my machine just in case but still no icons.. any advice?.. Thanks a lot.

I quit with this.. regardless installation was apparently ok, LO never launched. I had to change O.S. to other with LO 3.x preloaded.
