Trouble running Only Office

I think I have Zorin 15,3 Core.

Did you download the .deb file?

Is it still in your ~/Downloads folder?

If so, you can double click it to open it in the Gdebi Installer. It will have two buttons on the upper right side- Reinstall or Remove.

I think OP has to install Gdebi first.
I do not remember it comes with Zorin.

sudo apt install gdebi

If OP lost the installer it is here:

Ok, corrected version:

@Tom3746 Question: Do you specifically need Only Office or would Libre Office suffice?

I do have Libre and am running it. I just want to have a second similar app.

I do have the file in a folder. I go thru the installation process but still can't get it to run. I may just have to bail on this app.

A few suggestions
Abiword for Word-processing.
Gnumerics for spreadsheet.

Both can be found in Software.

Gnumerics is app installer only.
But watch out for Abiword. Make sure to install app version, not Flatpak version.

Alternatively, you could open the terminal (ctrl + alt + T)
and issue the following commands:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

sudo apt install abiword gnumerics

@FrenchPress et al, From experience, which spreadsheet app gives best (comparable quality) visual results for graphs/graphics compared to Excel?

My husband is using LibreOffice.
But I tend to go to the VM Windows Office for anything bit more complicated.

I just checked and found this interesting comparison site.
