How to Install LibreOffice in Ubuntu

In my last post I talked about LibreOffice. In case you wondering how to install LibreOffice on your ubuntu computer. Here are the instructions. Please note that doing this will replace your OpenOffice.org packages with LibreOffice.
Open a terminal and type the following commands to ad LibreOffice PPA to your software sources list.


sudo apt-add-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libreoffice



Please do give your feedback and bug reports to the LibreOffice team.

  1. might i suggest removing all openoffice first.
    sudo apt-get purge openoffice*.*

    or you can try a bash i made up.
