LibreOffice on Fedora

How to install Libreoffice on Fedora

Remove OpenOffice first.

1.  Get the pack from

2.  Go to the dir where you saved the tar.gz file and extract it using this command tar -zxvf LibO_3.3.0_beta2_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz (The name of the file may change depends on which version you have)

3. After the extract, you may get a dir (folder) called “en-US” use the cd command to go in

4. cd en-US

5. cd RPMS

6. # rpm -i *.rpm (This will install all the rpms that are in) You have to run it as root

7. cd desktop-integration

8. # rpm -i libreoffice3.3-redhat-menus-3.3-1.noarch.rpm (This will install the LibreOffice menus)

NOTE ! If you have any problems opening LibreOffice from the menus you can still use this command

    I would suggest that you do a little change in your guide: at step 6, instead of

    rpm -i *.rpm

    make it use yum. Like this:

    yum localinstall –nogpgcheck $(ls)

    You can do a very easy uninstall afterwards using yum history undo, for example.
