Update LibreOffice

I used to script to install LibreOffice and was disappointed to see LibreOffice 3 when I launched the program. Does the script specify that it is an old version of LibreOffice? I might have missed it, but if it doesn't that should be added so people know they are getting the old version. Ideally, the script will install LibreOffice 4 or even 4.1 smile

Re: Update LibreOffice

The script installs the stable and supported LibreOffice from the Debian repos (#! being a Debian-based distro).

Re: Update LibreOffice

copy/pasted notes (appears to be 4.0.3.something);

#! 11 (or debian wheezy), installing libreoffice 4.x from backports

sudo geany /etc/apt/sources.list

add

## b backports, only interested in libre office upgrades
deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy-backports main

run

sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install libreoffice

if it looks ugly, try

sudo apt-get install libreoffice-gnome libreoffice-gtk

warning, backports can be problematic.

Re: Update LibreOffice

I'm not sure, but it would be better. I did it that way (remove libreoffice*, install from LO site).

Now I'm using Version: 4.1.1.2

Re: Update LibreOffice

So, what is the deal with later versione of LO?
I ask as I have moved from Statler to Waldorf recently and, hence, from OO to LO. I find LO calc's graphics painfully slow at times. Is that improved in the later versions?

In the past I found fewer issues with OO downloaded directly from OO than in repo versions of OO. That was in my pre-#! and thus pre-Debian days. I haven't seen any of those issues since joining #!.

Re: Update LibreOffice

Yeah, the problem description given in that examples is exactly what I have seen.

I have not followed OO closely but I think It actually is developed. There was a new release recently.

Re: Update LibreOffice

Yesterday I ditched the Waldorf repo version of LO and downloaded the latest stable version from LOs web and found it to be *much* quicker at this Calc graphics thing if not yet as quick as OO in Statler was.

Re: Update LibreOffice

^ He missed a step in his post. After you add the backports entry to /etc/apt/sources.list, you need to run

sudo apt-get update

... or apt won't read the new entry. Then run...

sudo apt-get install -t wheezy-backports libreoffice

-edit- BTW, the command to see what's installed and what's available is, without sudo...

apt-cache policy libreoffice

Run that before and after doing the sudo apt-get update if you want to confirm that you only had the earlier version before but now the backported version is available. And you should leave the backports entry in your sources.list so you'll recieve security updates if there are any.
