    Hrm. What is the actual name of the package to install? “sudo apt-get install libreoffice-4-0” is not recognised, along with a number of others I tried to guess.

    BTW, I’m using precise pangolin. Sorry, H

    Right. For some reason terminal did not accept or run “sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade” properly. When I divided and ran dist-upgrade separately I ended up with version I’ll fiddle some more and see what happens. Thanks!
