How about a way to install the LO associated help file that is a separate downloaded DEB?

N0rbert's suggestion for the main package of LO worked for me, use the PPA (see below): But what will work to install the help file for LibreOffice? LibreOffice_7.0.1_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-US.tar.gz It's extracted DEB generates a similar dependency missing message.

You have chosen very difficult method. It is unnecessary.

“LibreOffice Packaging” team have a PPA, to install LibO 7.0 packages use: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-7-0 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libreoffice sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

I hope someone knows the solution or workaround for the associated help file.

  • Have you tried sudo apt install libreoffice-help-en-us?

    Simply do not mix packages from different sources. Use help packages from LO PPA, they are named libreoffice-help-<lang>.

Just install it from the PPA itself: the package is called libreoffice-help-<language code>
