How do I install the final version of LibreOffice 3.4 in Ubuntu 10.10, 11.04 and the latest version of 11.10

    There is a DEB file at their download page under "Other way to download LibreOffice". I'm almost tempted to downlad/install it but I'll wait for a PPA.

Note Remove the previous version of OpenOffice or LibreOffice with this command

For OpenOffice

sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

For LibreOffice

sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*

1 - Go to; LibreOffice 3.4 Download

2 - Select Linux x86 deb or x64 deb depending on your computer

3 - Save & extract the file to ~/Desktop

4 - Rename the file as libreoffice

5 - Enter the following command into terminal and wait for the process to finish.

sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/libreoffice/DEBS/*.deb

6 - Run the following command to finish the installation:

sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/libreoffice/DEBS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.4-debian-menus_3.4-12_all.deb

You now have Libreoffice 3.4 installed.


Here: http://mygeekopinions.blogspot.com/2011/06/how-to-install-libreoffice-34-in-ubuntu.html I installed manually as: (for 11.04 but i think it would be appropriate for 10.10 or 10.04)

  • sudo apt-get purge libreoffice libreoffice-core (purge 3.2 version if you have 11.04)
  • download 3.4 debs from here: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/
  • unarchive all debs to one folder (fore example ~/debs/libreoffice)
  • sudo dpkg -iR ~/debs/libreoffice/*.deb
  • libreoffice3.4
