Install Libre Office 3.6 on Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” and Linux 13 “Maya”

The Linux alternatives to Windows’s Microsoft Office are Open Office and Libre Office. In this short article I will show you how to install Libre Office 3.6 on Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” and Linux 13 “Maya”.

Libre Office 3.6 is not available in the Ubuntu 12.04 or Linux Mint 13 default PPAs, so we need to add the Libre Office PPA by ourselves.

To install Libre Office, follow these steps.

Step 1: Adding the Libe Office PPA:

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

Step 2: Updating the system:

In order to get the freshly added PPA active, you need to update the local repos.

$ sudo apt-get update

Step 3: Installing Libre Office:

$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gnome
