LibreOffice on Fedora

How to install Libreoffice on Fedora

Remove OpenOffice first.

1.  Get the pack from http://www.documentfoundation.org/download/

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

/opt/libreoffice3/program/soffice.bin

    Hi,

    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.
