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…
Download the RPM from Libre Office web site.
Extract the tar file.
I just right clicked and selected extract here. you can do the same. 🙂 easy stuff
Go to the extracted folder using the terminal
Run the following command
yum install *.rpm –nogpgcheck
it will install all the office packages
Now to add the program icons to the menu
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…….. 😉
Download JRE RPM from considerate Oracle… 😀
go to the download directory on your terminal
Run the following commands
chmod 777 jre-6u27-linux-i586-rpm.bin
Now my friends you can safely use Libre Office on Fedora 15 …
