I have LibreOffice 4.2.x.x running in my Ubuntu. I don't know how to install it from the outside of Ubuntu (how to open the package and with what files etc) but I cannot upgrade it from inside of Ubuntu either. Please help. I am lost with the Linux techinical terms too. Please help.

Some questions:

  1. Do you know how to download files with your web browser?
  2. Do you know where the files go when you download them?
  3. Do you know what the Terminal program is?
  4. Can you follow directions?
  5. Are you too timid to follow directions that mean pasting commands into a Terminal window?
