Install LibreOffice in Ubuntu.

This blog post is now obsolete.

At this moment repository doesn’t contain prepared packages so we will install it by hand.

  1. Go directly to the download page and choose your version, package format, and architecture.
For example use the following URL to get version `3.3.0-rc1` for `x86` architecture using `deb` package format.

  1. Download the following archive:
<pre>LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz.asc </pre>

Don&#8217;t forget about language pack (if applicable):

<pre>LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_langpack-deb_pl.tar.gz LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_langpack-deb_pl.tar.gz.asc </pre>
  1. Import code signing key by executing the following command:
<pre lang="bash">$ gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys AFEEAEA3 </pre>

Verify all downloaded archives:

<pre lang="bash">$ gpg --verify LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz.asc  LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz </pre>

<pre lang="bash">$ gpg --verify LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_langpack-deb_pl.tar.gz.asc  LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_langpack-deb_pl.tar.gz </pre>
  1. Extract the main archive and install Libre Office packages:
<pre lang="bash">$ tar xvfz LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz $ cd LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US/DEBS $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb $ sudo dpkg -i desktop-integration/libreoffice3.3-debian-menus_3.3-3_all.deb </pre>

Extract the localization archive and install remaining packages:

<pre lang="bash">$ tar xvfz LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_langpack-deb_pl.tar.gz $ cd LibO_3.3.0rc1_Linux_x86_langpack-deb_pl/DEBS $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb </pre>
  1. Download preferred dictionary.
To install it start Libre Office, open the Tools menu, and select _Extension Manager_.
  1. Remove Open Office:
<pre lang="bash">sudo apt-get remove openoffice* </pre>
  1. Done.
