I recently got an ARM Samsung Chromebook which I put Ubuntu on, and I have LibreOffice 3 on it but 4 is much better. is there currently a way to get version 4 on ARM in Ubuntu, or will it be ported soon? The deb files and source on the LibreOffice website are x86 specific (at least the files I found).

Hi @Andrewlh,

What version of Ubuntu are you running? I hoped that you would able to get a 4.0.2 build from the LibreOffice PPA, but it appears that they're only providing i386 and AMD64 builds:

If you're adventurous and willing to try mucking around with source and building on ARM, this question might be relevant:

Looks like Ubuntu 13.04 will be out by the end of the month, and that should include LO 4.0.

LibreOffice is build for arm in all Ubuntu releases. The ppas do not have arm builders unfortunately, thus no backports. The easiest way to get a current LibreOffice version on ARM is to get the curent Ubuntu version (e.g. Ubuntu 14.04 currently has LibreOffice 4.2.x).
