I have downloaded the deb files but I cannot "right click" and get the option to open in a terminal window. Any suggestions?

Note: If you are running Ubuntu or any of its derivates, it is probably better you install LibreOffice from the Software Center or from the LibreOffice 4.1.x PPA. See this Q&A.

  1. You must decompress the downloaded file(s). Start with the "Main installer", and run from a terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T):

    tar xvf LibreOffice_<version>_Linux_<architecture>_deb.tar.gz
  2. Change into the unpacked directory, and then to the subdirectory called DEBS

    cd LibreOffice_<version>_Linux_<architecture>_install-deb_en-US/DEBS
  3. Install the .deb packages

    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
  4. Change into the desktop_integration folder

    cd desktop_integration
  5. Run the install command again

    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
  6. Repeat the process of decompressing and running sudo dpkg -i *.deb for the "Translated user interface" and "LibreOffice built-in help" install files if you want LibreOffice in a language other than (US) English and if you want to install the help files.
