Installing Libre Office on Fedora 15

Ok after installing fedora from the live image, found that it doesnt ship with Libreoffice… tried to install with the add remove programs utility but found it too confusing….

so tried the command line and here are the steps that I followed…

Step 1

Download the RPM from Libre Office web site.

http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

Step 2

Extract the tar file.

I just right clicked and selected extract here. you can do the same. 🙂 easy stuff

Step 3

Go to the extracted folder using the terminal

cd /home/suren/Downloads/LibO_3.4.3rc2_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US/RPMS

Step 4

Run the following command

yum install *.rpm –nogpgcheck

it will install all the office packages

Step 5

Now to add the program icons to the menu

cd desktop-integration/

rpm -ivh libreoffice3.4-redhat-menus-3.4-302.noarch.rpm

Thats all. enjoy Libre Office on fedora 🙂

He he……. forgot to tell you….. you need JRE installed to run Libre Office

so here are the steps for that ……….. sorry…….. 😉

Step 1

Download JRE RPM from considerate Oracle… 😀

Step 3

Run the following commands

chmod 777 jre-6u27-linux-i586-rpm.bin

sh jre-6u27-linux-i586-rpm.bin
