The latest installation instructions for LibreOffice

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, LibreOffice is one of the most popular, open-source, cross-platform office suite, developed by The Document Foundation.

The latest version available is LibreOffice 4.4.2, which has been released yesterday, coming with over 50 fixes, since the release of LibreOffice 4.4.0 and 4.4.1.

In this article I will show you how to install LibreOffice 4.4.2 On Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems, including: Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, Deepin, Peppermint, LXLE, Linux Lite, Kwheezy and SparkyLinux.

In order to successfully install LibreOffice 4.4.2 on Ubuntu, Debian and derivative systems, we have to download the archive containing the deb packages, extract it and install the packages via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies.

Follow the instructions for your system’s architecture exactly, in order to get a successful installation.
