Revision history [back]

I work under an ancient Debian & install direct from LibreOffice:-
https://www.libreoffice.org/download.

I therefore do not blame you in the least for using a Repository!

My search for an Ubuntu 'ppa:libreoffice' repo brought up:-
https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

...but their command line install is different to the one that you used:-

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

(remember that you are installing their PPA to your system with this command, and not installing the program)

If you wanted to add the PPA manually, then you would add the following to the file "sources.list" (replacing 'YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE' with, for example, 'vivid'):-

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main

After this is all successfully installed you can discover the programs available to install + install the ones that you want.
