i'm trying to install the 3.1 OpenOffice, and started by going thru
the steps suggested at
but it didn't work and so i've been tracking thru various command line,
apt-based steps. i am stumped by two things:
#1 while i think i've successfull received the PPA key, gpg won't let me
rik@monk:~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 247D1CFF
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 247D1CFF
gpg: requesting key 247D1CFF from hkp server pgp.mit.edu
gpg: key 247D1CFF: "Launchpad PPA for OpenOffice.org Scribblers" 3 new signatures
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: new signatures: 3
rik@monk:~$ gpg --export --armor 247d1cff
gpg: WARNING: nothing exported
still, Synaptic sees this entry in list of authentications.
#2 (but perhaps because of this?), while Synaptic lets me add the
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
after refreshing it is still not added to my list of "Origin" sources.
(while i'm telling this in the reverse order, i did intially
add the repository BEFORE dealing with the authentication.
i attach a screenshot just to show the inconsistency between the
repository list and the known Origins.
* when i Reload Synaptic, i think i see a a "Fail" message (in the Show
Details pane), but it flashes by too quickly to know just what it's
about. i've looked in Synaptic's history, and als found
/var/logs/apt/term.log, but neither show anything. where are these
error messages logged?
* what is the difference between files listed in
must all PPA-secure sources be in ppa.list?
thanks for any suggestions.

Before installing from *any* PPA, it is always advisable to visit the
PPA itself first:
