Will the current libre office on ubuntu be updated?


Will the current libre office version on ubuntu be updated to the latest version of 4.1 or will the latest version update be made available for ubuntu software updater, instead of doing it the other way around?

What is your Ubuntu version?

When Ubuntu is released then all of the software it is released with is frozen and only fixes related to that frozen version is updated for security or bugs.

If you would like to have a LibreOffice v4.1 installed on Ubuntu you need to add PPA.

  1. Open Terminal with pressing CTRL+ALT+T.
  2. Copy bellow command and paste to terminal and press Enter to add libreoffice-4-1 PPA:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-1
  3. Then copy bellow command to update software to new version:

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade


@l-user tried running above commands in terminal. still when i open libre office it is the same one ( what should I do in this case?
