LibreOffice is the free power-packed Open Source personal productivity suite for Windows, Macintosh and Linux, that gives you six feature-rich applications for all your document production and data processing needs: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math and Base. Support and documentation is free from our large, dedicated community of users, contributors and developers. You, too, can also get involved!

-----------------------
*HOW TO INSTALL*

Using Terminal:

If you want to start by removing OpenOffice completely, enter the following line in Terminal. Otherwise, skip this step.
sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

Next, install the ppa and software.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-gnome

Additional install variations include:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice
or
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-kde

Note:
If for some odd reason LibreOffice greys out your apps and you can use them anymore, just use this command:
sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*

And reinstall using the steps above.

-----------------------------
USING THE .DEB ON UBUNTU:

Download LibreOffice and extract it to your Desktop. Rename "LibO_3.3.0rc4_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US" or whatever the name is to "en-US".

Now, remove open office using the following command using the terminal:
sudo apt-get remove --purge openoffice*.*

Installing all these deb files are easy from command line so open the terminal and use the following comamnd:
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/en-US/DEBS/*.deb

Finally you need to install desktop integration deb package using the following command:
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/en-US/DEBS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.3-debian-menus_3.3-6_all.deb

To install the "Help Pack", simply go into the get the "libobasis3.3-en-us-help_3.3.0-19_amd64.deb" or whatever it may be called out of the downloaded file (tar.gz, .zip, etc..) and move it to the desktop and rename it to "help.deb". This way the name is short and easier to type. Now run this command from the "Terminal":
sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/help.deb

That's it! Enjoy 8)

Easier Method that also enables integration with the system Update Manager

1. Open Terminal.

2. Type in the following code and press enter/return:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
3. Type in your password when prompted and press enter/return.
The PPA and encryption keys (to confirm that it's a legit PPA and not one that will hack your system) will be added into APT.

4. Type in the following code and press enter/return:
sudo apt-get update
This will update the list of available software.

5. Type in the following code and press enter/return:
sudo apt-get purge openoffice
6. Press "y" and then enter/return when prompted.
This will remove OpenOffice, since LibreOffice replaces it.

7. After OpenOffice is removed, type in the following code and press enter/return:
sudo apt-get autoremove
8. Press "y" and then enter/return when prompted.
This will remove anything left over, like extensions for example.

9. Type in the following code and press enter/return:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gtk
10. Press "y" and then enter/return when prompted.
This will download and install both LibreOffice and the code necessary to integrate the LibreOffice user interface with GNOME.

11. After everything's done, exit Terminal.
---------------------------------
Enjoy LibreOffice!
---------------------------------

SMALL NOTE: If you're using KDE instead of GNOME, replace "libreoffice-gtk" with "libreoffice-kde".
