Sorted out why I couldn't run multiple versions - I'd forgotten to
modify the bootstraprc file. I can now run (U)LO 3.3.2, LO 3.3.2, and LO
3.4.1 - all at the same time.

Just download the .deb (including the help .deb). In nautilus, right
click on the .tz and select 'Extract here'. Then go to:
LibO_3.4.1rc3_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US/DEBS in a terminal and:

$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Do the same for the help files:

After you've installed (again in the terminal):

$ cd /opt/libreoffice3.4/program
$ gksu gedit bootstraprc

Modify the following line:


Save the file & exit gedit. This will have LO 3.4 use the
~/.libreoffice3.4/3 for your user profile and will not interfere with
your existing Ubuntu LO 3.3 at ~/.libreoffice/3.

Again in the terminal:
$ /opt/libreoffice3.4/program/soffice
