How may I install LibreOffice tar.gz file?

I’ve downloaded the 5.0 version and I got a tar.gz file.
My Linux it’s the latest version of Ubuntu.
Could someone please, tell me how may I install it?
Should I do this from the Terminal typing something? or could I install it with a program doing double click or something easy?
Is there is any easy way to do this instead typing complicated commands, I’d prefer that.

  • You will have an Ubuntu Repository. Use standard methods to install from that. Else:-


    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
     sudo apt-get update
     sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
  • Else:-

    Download the .deb from LO & install that:-
    (eg LibreOffice_5.0.0_Linux_x86_deb.tar.gz)

    (from a ROOT terminal):-

    tar -xvzf LibreOffice_5.0.0_Linux_x86_deb.tar.gz
     cd LibreOffice_5.0.0.5_Linux_x86_deb/DEBS/
     dpkg -i *.deb

    (note README at LibreOffice_5.0.0.5_Linux_x86_deb/readmes/README_en-US)

If this helps then please tick the answer (:heavy_check_mark:)

Rather than use a root terminal (which is inherently dangerous), simply issue the dpkg command prefixed with sudo.
