KOffice 2 Beta 1 has been released. Packages are available for Kubuntu Intrepid in our kubuntu-members-kde4 personal package archive.
Please note that these packages will only work with Kubuntu Intrepid Ibex, the latest development branch of Kubuntu. Packages for Kubuntu Hardy are being worked on, but could still take some time.
Follow the Kubuntu Repository Guide and add the following to your 'Third-Party Software' tab:
You can now update any existing KOffice 2 installation to the most recent version using the Adept Updater tool in your system tray.
Please follow the Adept How to and install the package called "koffice-kde4", if you don't have KOffice 2 installed yet.
Now you should be able to start the KOffice 2 applications from the menu. For example the word processing application KWord.
