How to install *.deb? [SOLVED]

Postby mintmintmint on Sun Nov 17, 2013 5:52 pm

Hello, I'm relatively new. I haveLinux Mint 14. My "Software Manager" (mintinstall) does not work, so I have been using aptitude from the command line to perform updates. However, I don't know much about the installation system. How to install *.deb? I want to install the newest LibreOffice because the one that comes with Linux Mint is quite an older version.

I am on my final weeks of university, so I won't try this right away because I don't want to screw things up by mistake at a crucial moment. But I will install the newest LibreOffice while on vacation. Nevertheless I wanted to know now.

Also, how to edit subject to add the word "SOLVED"?

Thank you!
