Install LibreOffice on Fedora and Ubuntu


You’ve probably already heard the news. OpenOffice has officially forked into LibreOffice. This fork is thanks to the way Oracle has botched nearly everything it has touched and the OpenOffice community wants to protect the flagship product. So now, there is a fully open office suite that, in my opinion, will actually be able to rise to newer and higher heights than it ever could under the firm thumb of Oracle and Sun.

Now, if you already have OpenOffice you can still install LibreOffice. And if you are using Windows you simply have to download the installation file from the LibreOffice download page. If you are using Fedora Linux you can download the GNU Linux file which, once unpacked, will contain all the rpm files you need. If you want to install in Ubuntu, you have to first create debs from the rpms. I am going to show you how to do just that in this article (along with showing you how to install LibreOffice in Fedora).
