Current (October 2012) Final LibreOffice 3.6.3
You can find the .tar.gz packages containing 32 and 64bit .debs on the download page:
32bit Debs (Torrent)
64bit Debs (Torrent)
Download and Unpack
First download the package for your version (mine is 64bit) to your “/downloads” directory, then unpack it:
ls (then copy and paste the package name after the “tar -xvf” command)
tar -xvf LibO_3.6.3_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz
Install Libre Office 3.6.3
Change to the extracted LibO directory and install all the .deb packages in one go.
**Note** If Libre Office asks for Java (and you want to install it)
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
cd LibO (hit Tab button to complete)
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Where is Libre Office installed?
Libre Office 3.6.3 is now installed in /opt/libreoffice3.6/ and the application launchers are stored in /opt/libreoffice3.6/program
Add Libre Office to your Openbox menu
I use scite text editor to edit my Openbox menu basically as I have the option to save in .xml format (otherwise you get xml, end of line extra character errors etc) . You can also do this with Vim, Nano etc, if you know how to do it. I prefer having Scite already setup for xml editing.
Back-up and Edit
cp .config/openbox/menu.xml .config/openbox/menu.xmlBKP
Add the Office Menu where you like
That’s it, you now have the latest Stable edition of Libre Office and you can launch everything from your Openbox menu 🙂
