Re: source code installation
Thanks Florian. I followed your instruction, but got following result.
I've tried both with CD and without CD in the driver, but the same result.
# apt-get install openoffice.org
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
ttf-opensymbol openoffice.org-common openoffice.org-core

1. Which openoffice in the CD I should install? Is the command like:

With aptitude you can do searches like this:
aptitude search '~i(~sgames|~Ggame)'
This will list all installed (~i) packages which belong to the "games"
section (~sgames) or (|) which have the string "game" in one of their
You can uninstall all these packages with one fell blow by replacing
"search" with "remove" in the command above. If you want to have a bit
