Title, pretty much. I currently have LibreOffice on Ubuntu 14.04. I'm just wondering what the easiest way to upgrade to the new LibreOffice 5 is, without creating duplicate applications or screwing everything up. Can anyone give me a quick method? Thanks in advance!

  • Those could work I guess. I was kinda hoping for some nice more specific steps to take. Sorta lazy. Sorry if this is a waste of a post Aug 6, 2015 at 3:38

I believe the simplest way would be to follow this guide.

Otherwise you can use the check for update menu:



sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
