How to install LibreOffice 3.3 in Ubuntu 10.10 / 11.04


After the release of RC4, LibreOffice 3.3 stepped today for the final stable release. RC4 was released a couple of days back and Ubuntu  users became anxious for the final release. Even though the PPA is not available for the version, for the time being we can install it by compiling the source.

Before you start we advice you to uninstall OpenOffice. To do so, in Terminal write :

sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

To install LibreOffice 3.3 in Ubuntu 32 bit run the following in Terminal :

tar zxvf LibO_3.3.0_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz
cd LibO_3.3.0_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Update: PPA for Libreoffice 3.3 is released and can be found from here (only for Maverick)
