LibreOffice 3.3.2 Released and PPA installation instrauctions included

LibreOffice is community-driven and developed software which is a project of the not-for-profit organization, The Document Foundation.

The LibreOffice software is developed by users, just like you, who believe in the principles of Open Source software and in sharing their work with the world in a non-restrictive way. At the core of these principles is the promise of better-quality, highly-reliable and secure software that gives you greater flexibility at zero cost. Beyond this, the driving factor behind the community is personal choice and transparency, which translates practically into wider compatibility, more utility and no end-user lock-in to using just one product.

Install LibreOffice 3.3.2 in ubuntu

Open the terminal and run the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

    Nice article and all however the repository that you mention doesn’t actually contain LibreOffice 3.3.2 at the moment.

    I added this repository and when i tried to update I received an error message.

    When i’ve checked the source.list in /etc/apt/ i found this in sources.list.d/libreoffice-ppa-maverick.list

    deb maverick main #Libreoffice PPA maverick main #Libreoffice PPA (source code)

    and it should be:

    deb maverick main #Libreoffice PPA
    deb-src maverick main #Libreoffice PPA (source code)

    It’s like if the add-apt command lost part of the second line when it saved the text… It happened before adding other sources trough the add-apt command. Does somebody know what’s the problem?

    Thakns for the article 🙂

    Will this replace OpenOffice, or should that be uninstalled first?

  4. TJR says:

    My system has not automatically updated yet; I originally installed LibreOffice when it first was released.
    It doesn’t look like the repositories are ready yet:

    Still isn’t in the PPA.

  6. TJ says:

    Anyone have an ETA, or is it such a minor bug fix that they are not going to bother with updating the PPA?

  7. Anon says:

    PPA has been updated in 10.10

    Worked perfectly. Yes, it replaces OpenOffice. In fact, I noticed that if you install LibreOffice using the DEB file downloads, it doesn’t replace OpenOffice, but it also doesn’t work properly. For example, my toolbar settings were not remembered, and kept resetting. Once I subscribed to the PPA and installed as directed in this post, OOo was gone, and LibreOffice behaved as expected.
