All of you know that LibreOffice 3.4.0 Final has been published on 03 June. I just download this newer version (deb package) and going to install it on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine. I didn't use PPA for this session. Because LibreOffice full download size is 146 MB. So, I use 'Gwget' download manager to download 'LibO_3.3.2_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz' file. I install it on Ubuntu, LinuxMint and Peppermint operating system. It means this installing method could work on any Debian based Linux distribution wheres the environment is Gnome or LXDE. Here is the detail installment process.
- First of all download latest LibreOffice from their websites download page.
- For Ubuntu or and Debian based Linux distribution, select related package from dropdown menu. I choose deb package.
- After completing of download you will get a file named 'LibO_3.3.2_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz' or 'LibO_3.4.0_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz'
- Extract the compressed file on another folder.
- You will get a folder containing two folder called 'DEBS' and 'readmes'.
- Open 'DEBS' folder.
- You will get an another folder named 'desktop-integration'.
- Open this folder, copy 'libreoffice3.4-debian-menus_3.4-12_all.deb' file from this folder and paste it on 'DEBS' folder.
- Now copy this whole 'DEBS' folder in your Home directory.
- Now enter that folder using the command below in terminal. Remember that Linux commands are case sensitive.
- Entering in that folder run the command below in terminal.
sudo dpkg -i *
- It will trigger install command and LibreOffice will start to install.
- After completing install process you will find your new office productivity suite on 'Office' submenu of main menu.
- Libreoffice on office submenu of main ubuntu menu
- This new office suite contain several office management software and they are:
- LibreOffice 3.4 Base
LibreOffice 3.4 Calc
LibreOffice 3.4 Draw
LibreOffice 3.4 Impress
LibreOffice 3.4 Math
LibreOffice 3.4 Printer Administration
LibreOffice 3.4 Writer
- Remember that LibreOffice is more powerful and faster then any other office management suite.
- Do you like to add Libreoffice PPA and download and install from it? Then execute the commands below.
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libreoffice
- Do you want to remove or uninstall Open Office from your machine? Then type the command in terminal
sudo apt-get remove --purge openoffice*.*
- or use another command on terminal
sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*
- This is not necessary/ mandatory. It depends on your mind.
- By the way: Libreoffice require Java runtime environment installed on machine. You can download it via 'Ubuntu Software Center' or follow install .bin file in ubuntu Linux
- Why late more...
