LibreOffice installation on Linux


Full installation

  • Performing a full installation is the recommended way to install LibreOffice in Linux. One would do this by installing the LibreOffice metapackage via a terminal:

    sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Selective installation

  • While this isn’t recommended, one may install a subset of the full installation. An example package set:
    • libreoffice-writer: Word processor
    • libreoffice-calc: Spreadsheet
    • libreoffice-impress: Presentation
    • libreoffice-draw: Drawing
    • libreoffice-base: Database
    • libreoffice-math: Equation editor
    • libreoffice-filter-mobiledev: Mobile Devices filters
    • libreoffice-filter-binfilter: legacy filters (e.g. StarOffice 5.2)
