How To Install LibreOffice 3.3.2 In Ubuntu Using PPA

Everyone knows that most of the Linux distributions prefer LibreOffice over OpenOffice. And in the next release of both Ubuntu (which will be the version 11.04) and in Fedora they'll ship LibreOffice replacing Openoffice.

Few hours ago they updated it to the latest version which is now the 3.3.2 and you certainly don't have to wait till those OS versions are released, so if you use Ubuntu then you can update or install the latest version of LibreOffice by using PPA. So as usual, fireup your terminal and issue the following commands.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gnome

Remember, if you already have installed the 3.3.2 RC (release candidate) then the developers advice that you actually don't need to install the official version since it is almost the same. And if you're using LibreOffice for the first time then make sure your Linux distro has ....

*. OpenJDK over GCJ.

*. Remove the OpenOffice first.
