Install LibreOffice ~ Ubuntu 10.10

  • If you don’t want to wait until Ubuntu 11.04, you can install LibreOffice now on your Ubuntu 10.10 machine.

    I will show you how to install it with the Terminal. Open the Terminal under Applications > Accessories > Terminal.

    First you will need to remove OpenOffice. You can’t have both OpenOffice and LibreOffice installed.

    sudo apt-get purge openoffice*.*

    Run the following commands one line at a time to add the LibreOffice repository and install Libreoffice:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gnome language-support-en

    Works like a charm thanks Joe. Great guide!

  • Thanks, no problem

  • Thanks, your guide is excellent.

  • Thanks. You’re welcome.

  • This is very nice, never knew the possibility of adding repositories, I thought they were fixed.
    I’m really beginning to like the way linux works, especially inside debian/ubuntu.
    The guide is really simple but effective.

  • Yep, you can add repos. They are are great to add extra software not included by default.
