sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo apt-add-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-0 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
In Ubuntu 12.04, the LibreOffice 4 PPA which people mention above gave me some problems.
Specifically, it introduced an incompatible version of certain packages which broke the Apt system.
I wrote this script for use with the LibreOffice PPA instead:
#!/usr/bin/env bash # Replaces LibreOffice 3 with LibreOffice 4. sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:libreoffice/ppa sudo apt-get -y update sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade exit 0
In my experience, it works better with this PPA.
Here is I installed latest version of libreoffice.
Download latest libreoffice from here.
Untar it archive manager , Find and open DEBS folder.
First remove older version with typing following command in terminal
sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*
Download latest libre office, and unpack it.
cd ~/Downloads tar -xvzf LibreOffice_4.2.0_Linux*.tar.gz
Run dpkg in the DEBS directory
cd LibreOffice_4.2.0_Linux*/DEBS sudo dpkg -i *
You will get libreoffice with updated version. You will get notification when new version is available.
