I would like to update LibreOffice to 4.1 but I don’t want to wait for Ubuntu to offer updates (it takes weeks sometimes)… what is PPA (repository) for LibreOffice 4.1 Official Release?
LibreOffice 4.1 is just released. i think we have wait some days and will be added in:
Otherwise you can download and install .deb packages manually. But is better to wait for Official PPA.
I didn’t know how to use this link…
https://plus.google.com/101094190333184858950/posts/LWKhrpJtuuJ has the answer:
https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa for Ubuntu 13.10 saucy, 13.04 raring, 12.04 LTS precise.
Versions were in the ppa with the release announcement.
I didn’t figure out how to install it this way :-/
It detected that I use an Ubuntu variant and displayed links to tarballs full of debs.
This is manuall instal… I wanted to install it automatically (and all updates that will come later as well)
I installed it with the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
However, I had problem with menu showing with delays of few seconds (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64565), so I removed it… I will wait for official release and hope it will be fixed…
This is getting way too complicated for my simple mind. Think I will wait for the Official release. However, I would like to have LibreOffice on my computer. Knowing that I have downloaded the latest and greatest version (but without the menus) can I just download the previous version or do I have to remove the new version. And, if so, how?
