I gonna update my LibreOffice to 4.0.1. Manual shouts If you have a previous version of LibreOffice already installed, then you will need to de-install it before proceeding further. But how do I uninstall it properly? P.S.I have Ubuntu 12.04.

You can uninstall the old version with sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice-common if it was installed via apt-get.

You can find a good tutorial on how to install Libre Office 4 here.
