I have referred to this so many times now that I decided to dedicate a thread to it.Follow these instructions to upgrade:(1) edit /etc/apt/sources.list uncomment the backports repository by removing the leading '#'(2) edit /etc/apt/preferences See this link http://crunchbanglinux.org/forums/post/142270/#p142270(3) update your index of packagessudo apt-get
after having read this post and visited this site I'm a bit confused: what are the safest software sources that I can use/enable without risks or at least with few risks? It seems to me that I can enable the backports ones, the partners ones and the independent ones.
I read Seth's post here: How do I install LibreOffice 4?. I wanted to upgrade, so I ran the commands as provided by Mik to upgrade using stable ppa. For some reason now when I try to run LibreOffice it starts up, shows the splash screen, loads about maybe 2-3% and then quits, giving me an Ubuntu error.
Almost all the major Linux distributions are using LibreOffice instead of OpenOffice. Today, it has been announced that Debian Squeeze too will get LibreOffice in the backports.LibreOffice has been available in Debian Wheezy and Debian Sid for a while now. But in the stable release, Debian Squeeze, it is not available.
LibreOffice is the free office suite that is compatible with all Microsoft Office files. LibreOffice is installed by default in Ubuntu. In Ubuntu 12.04, the libreoffice installation is version 3.5.3, and this tutorial will show you how to install latest 3.5.4 on Ubuntu 12.04, 11.10, 11.04 and 10.04.
