Purge all Libre Office 3.6.x (command line or synaptic including some "autoremovable" files after the process). Download from libreoffice site the whole package + the help package (deb for *buntu, mint or debian flavours). Unzip, untar go inside the folder with deb packages and give the command:

Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Do the same in all folders you have deb packages. Libre Office will be installed in /opt/libreoffice. Maybe you will have to make some simlinks from /opt/libreoffice/programs/swriter (and all the others programs scalc, sdraw, simpress, etc) to /usr/bin

There is a problem: sometimes, when you install packages that are connected to libreoffice you may go into a conflict (synaptic will try to install libreoffice from repos). Don't know exctly how to resolve that problem. Usually I gave up to install the program that ask for libreoffice from repo. I also presume that there are ppa repos with the last libreoffice.

Thanx 4 reply.

Can LO4 will appear in SoftwareManager, or can be installed by update manager?

If you download from their site, the update won't appear in Software Manager and is not possible to install by update manager.

More explanation are here:
