[ubuntu-uk] OpenOffice.org problems

I am having some serious problems with OpenOffice.org.
All was fine with version 3.0.something in Ubuntu 9.04, then one day
recently the update manager gave me a new version.
Since then it will not work properly. Every time I start OOo I get an
error message saying "Failed to set the look and feel". The icon on the
message is the Java icon.
So I decided to uninstall that version, and install OOo 3.1 from the OOo
website using a .deb for Ubuntu (64-bit).
But this has the same problem, and it keeps crashing and then it fails
to recover documents. Also I could not import an image into a file in
OOo Writer, due to a problem with the Graphics Filter.
It was all okay until an Ubuntu update. So can I go back to an earlier
version that worked? Or is a simple solution to just remove/install/fix
something with the current installation to get it working again?
I really need this to work, as I have an important document to work on
and I really do not want to use an alternative like MS Office.
