There was recently another release of LibreOffice, but it is a pain to have to manually go to their website and download the packages every time there is a new release. Is there a PPA that always has the latest version of LibreOffice?
There is an official LibreOffice PPA here.
You need to add
As of July 25th 2013, the following PPA offers the Release version of LibreOffice:
That will leave you with LibreOffice 4.1.
A PPA is now available for 4.1.0. To add it, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:
For complete instructions on how to install the beta2 of Libreoffice 4.1.0, check out LibreOffice Pre-Releases
I hope that this helps.
I have searched high and low, and I can't find a PPA for 4.1.x. Now if you would like to install it, (the documentation doesn't mention removing prior installation) I would recommend that you remove previous versions before installing this one.
To install LibreOffice 4.1.0 Beta 1 on Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10, and 12.04, do this. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:
For 32 bit systems:
For 64 bit systems:
Extract the archive:
Install LibreOffice 4.1.0:
As of June 13, 2013 it still not available in the pre-release PPA. Once available will update the answer.
The main LibreOffice PPA is for "test builds and backports", including "alpha and beta releases!". If you don't want such bleeding edge, it includes links to per-version stable PPAs, e.g. https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/libreoffice-4-1 for LibreOffice 4.1.
If you wish to use a Pre-Release (Alpha, Beta or Pre-Release version) you can use the following PPA:
This will give you the latest Pre-Release version available. It works perfectly with LibreOffice 4.2.x (At this moment). If you get any problems related to broken packages or the likes you can force the upgrade procedure which fixes any related problems with the already installed packages. In the case however I would recommend using
Of course this is only in the worst case scenario but always remember to read the recommendations of aptitude before proceeding which mentions which packages will be removed, upgraded and installed.
