LibreOffice 3.3 Download

LibreOffice is the power-packed free, libre and open source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and GNU/Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers.

There are three ways to install LibreOffice: source, packaged installer, repository. The repository route is easier than the other two but also doesn’t allow for any customization that you might want to do during a compilation. For this demonstration, repository and packaged distribution are shown.

Note: If you have installed, you should uninstall* it before installing LibreOffice.

For the packaged installer method, go to the LibreOffice Download page, select your system’s architecture (x86 or x64), package type (deb or rpm), and download the two packages that will appear. The installer, as it’s called, is really a gzipped tarball of rpm or deb packages. The helppack is a single package file.

Once downloaded, ungzipped, and untarred, cd into the install directory and install all of the packages listed.

$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Or, for rpm-based systems,

$ sudo rpm -i *.rpm

This installation will take several minutes. When it’s finished, cd to the desktop-integration directory and install the desktop integration package so that the menu items and launchers can be added to your Applications menu.

Debian-derived distribution users can install via a LibreOffice repository by using the following method. First, add the repository.

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

$ sudo apt-get update

Second, run an update to update package indexes from your /etc/apt/sources.list. Finally, install the LibreOffice packages from the repository.

$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gnome language-support-en

If you use KDE instead of GNOME, use libreoffice-kde in place of the libreoffice-gnome package.

After your installation completes, find your LibreOffice suite under the Applications->Office menu. See Figure 1.

Using LibreOffice

Using LibreOffice is no different than any version of OO.o that you’ve seen in the past two, three, or maybe more, years. The apps work the same. The icons and general features are all fairly standard fare. If you’ve seen OO.o or any derivative, you’ve seen LibreOffice. The new green color scheme is refreshing but you won’t find many other surprises waiting for you.

If you’d like to see a list of LibreOffice unique fixes and features, go to the New Features and Fixes page. It’s expected that future versions will diverge more significantly from its OO.o upstream parent. The addition of Go-oo’s improvements will further diverge LibreOffice and distinguish it from OO.o.

Some of the significant improvements to look forward to are: faster application startup and response, better interoperability with commercial office suites, and some functionality improvements covering multimedia integration, extended language capabilities, and mathematical enhancements.
