Howto install Libre Office on Debian Squeeze / Crunchbang Statler

**UPDATE**

LibreOffice 3.4.2 Final is available at the end of July

You can download the 3.4.2 RC3 tar.gz from here, unpack and install the .debs manually if you prefer. (see comments)  http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

—————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Libre Office is currently only available in the wheezy ,sid and squeeze-backports repositories at the moment so I chose to install it from squeeze-backports.

1. You need to add backports to your sources.list:

sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list

And add this line:

#SQUEEZE-BACKPORTS
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main

2. Update apt with:

sudo apt-get update

3. Then install Libre Office with:

apt-get -t squeeze-backports install libreoffice


E voilá !

  1. I'd also suggest commenting out the backports repo after installation or apt-pinning it so that it doesn't pull in unwanted updates to other programs at your next dist-upgrade.
