LibreOffice is a powerful open-source office suite that provides a comprehensive set of applications for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and more. This tutorial will guide you through the process of installing LibreOffice on Linux Ubuntu Zorin.
Before you begin, make sure you have administrative privileges on your Linux Ubuntu Zorin system.
Step 1: Update System Packages
Before installing any new software, it’s a good practice to update your system packages to their latest versions. Open a terminal and execute the following command:
sudo apt update
Step 2: Install LibreOffice
There are two options for installing LibreOffice: a reader-only installation and a full installation.
2.1. Reader-Only Installation:
If you only need to view documents and don’t require editing capabilities, you can install the LibreOffice reader package by executing the following command:
sudo apt install libreoffice-common
This will install the LibreOffice core package and necessary dependencies.
2.2. Full Installation:
To install the complete LibreOffice suite with all the applications, including Writer, Calc, Impress, and more, use the following command:
sudo apt install libreoffice*
This command will install all the LibreOffice packages available in the Ubuntu repositories.
