How to Install LibreOffice from a repository in Ubuntu

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

A temporary repository for LibreOffice – the newly-announced fork of OpenOffice – has been set up for Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other Debian-based distributions  to use.

The repository makes installation of the newly forked office suite, still in beta, a breeze for (32bit) users.


Open a new terminal and enter the following commands carefully:

echo 'deb /' | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 890E7A26
sudo apt-get update 

followed by:

sudo apt-get install libreoffice3* lobasis3.3*

to install the suite.
