OpenOffice Debian Packages


I'm trying to install the OpenOffice debian packages.  I've added the server 
to my /etc/apt/sources.list, and did an apt-get update.  However, when I try 
to apt-get install openoffice.org I get the following problem:

root@nylan:/etc/apt# apt-get install openoffice.org
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  openoffice.org: Depends: libgpcl0 but it is not installable
E: Sorry, broken packages

I have tried to install libgpcl0 with apt-get as well, but I get the 
following message:

root@nylan:/etc/apt# apt-get install libgpcl0
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package libgpcl0 has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
of sources.list
E: Package libgpcl0 has no installation candidate

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks for your work on this, I've been hoping to run OpenOffice for some 
time but when I've downloaded their builds the program never works.  It is 
great that someone is addressing the problem and integrating it with apt!


Love all, serve all.
