  • @dhiya - yes it does - have a look at the PPA in question - it holds LO 5 packages and the upgrade process as described in the answer will install that over your existing LO installation.

Simply use the official PPA :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Option 1 : You don't have libreoffice yet :

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:

sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Or install using Ubuntu Software center :

Install via the software center

Option 2 : You already have an old version of LibreOffice (4.x) :

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:

sudo apt-get upgrade

If you are looking for RC5, you can try

Libreoffice Packaging Team

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa


Libreoffice Pre-Release

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-prereleases

Keep in mind they are early releases and unstables versions.
