LibreOffice

Latest response

I have installed RHEL Server Enterprise on VMWare. Libre office is not available. How to install it?

Responses

Hi Suzeet,

Download the LibreOffice edition of your choice and extract the archive - change to the RPMS directory in the extracted folder.
Execute sudo yum install *.rpm ... that's all ... now you have LibreOffice installed. It gets installed to the /opt directory. :)

Regards,
Christian

Are you using RHEL8 by any chance? I am able to see LibreOffice is available in official repo.

Hi Suzeet,

Sayed is right ... LibreOffice is available in the RHEL repositories, but the versions are a little bit outdated. Normally the
version numbers are not so important, but in this case it's a little bit different. When someone does professional writing,
for example, it's good to have the latest (stable) software development evolution available. The current stable edition is
LO 6.2 and will be replaced by LO 6.3 soon - the version provided by the RHEL 7 repo is 5.3 and the version provided by
the RHEL 8 repo is 6.0. In case you don't rely on having the latest stable LibreOffice edition, execute these commands :

RHEL 7 ->

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
sudo yum update
sudo yum install libreoffice

RHEL 8 ->

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-rpms
sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf install libreoffice

Regards,
Christian
