LibreOffice installation on Ubuntu


  1. LibreOffice installation on Ubuntu

If you’re using Ubuntu, please don’t install LibreOffice manually from the .deb files available at Otherwise you will not get automatic updates, upgrades when new versions come out, integration with Ubuntu, and is unsupported for Ubuntu bug filing purposes. Using packages from supported Ubuntu repositories ensures you get the best assistance as this is the recommended method to install and use LibreOffice in Ubuntu.

Full installation

Performing a full installation is the recommended way to install LibreOffice in Ubuntu. One would do this by installing the LibreOffice metapackage via a terminal:

Selective installation

While this isn't recommended, one may install a subset of the full installation. An example package set:

  • libreoffice-writer: Word processor
  • libreoffice-calc: Spreadsheet
  • libreoffice-impress: Presentation
  • libreoffice-draw: Drawing
  • libreoffice-base: Database
  • libreoffice-math: Equation editor

Installing other related packages (dictionaries, extensions, clipart, templates, etc.)

Additional language modules, help files and extensions are also available if you search for “libreoffice” in your package manager. Example how to search:

apt-cache search libreoffice-help-en

Here are a few examples:

  • libreoffice-help-*: help files
  • libreoffice-l10n-*: localization files
  • libreoffice-nlpsolver - 'Solver for Nonlinear Programming' extension for LibreOffice

Language localization, spell checking, dictionary, hyphenation, thesaurus, and help

To install proper support for language writing aids you may install the corresponding packages libreoffice-l10n-*, myspell-*, hyphen-*, mythes-*, libreoffice-help-* followed by your language ISO 639-1 code. A complete list of such language codes is available here.

For example, the corresponding French packages are:

Libreoffice Apt
  • libreoffice-l10n-fr
  • myspell-fr
  • hyphen-fr
  • mythes-fr
  • libreoffice-help-fr

Please be advised that not all languages have these corresponding packages. For more information on language support in LibreOffice please check here.

Installing a newer version of LibreOffice than available via Ubuntu repositories

If you want to get a later version of LibreOffice then provided by the Ubuntu repositories, and you have tested this appropriately for your environment, you may do so via one of the PPAs provided by the LibreOffice Packaging team. For example, one may add the LibreOffice PPA repository:

sudo apt install python-software-properties

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

sudo apt update

LibreOffice is now available for installation.
