I want to install LibreOffice as a standalone application on a chromebook. Model Acer 730 Chromebook 11 What am I to do? Isn't there a ready-made installer- just to download and run it? Can you help me?

Regards Stefan Stefanov

Go to settings and enable the Chromebook Beta. You cannot install LibreOffice unless you do this. Now open a terminal. Type in "sudo apt-get install libreoffice" (without the ") and it will give you LibreOffice 5. This will NOT update to LibreOffice 6 because the correct repository is not yet added. For all linux apps you use the terminal to install.

This might help explain things

@JackyAnn Thank you for your help, I believe that I got it. I had forgot about installing with the terminal. Now to research what other distro's I can use.
