Remove OpenOffice, Install LibreOffice

If you’re running the latest release of your favorite Linux distro, chances are, you are already using LibreOffice. In my case, my desktop is still powered by Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. It means I still have OpenOffice as the default office suite. I say it’s time to switch to LibreOffice. Here’s a simple set of instructions to remove OpenOffice and Install LibreOffice via Terminal.

Remove OpenOffice

sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*

Install LibreOffice

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libreoffice
