I remember seeing an install direction for a Linux package that has the
"generic" information instead of the current numbering system. It worked
well enough. YET, for some users, you might need to state . . . .


replace the current version number for the "#.#.#",

Thanks! That is a good point.

BTW ... I do everything visually through Dolphin. No work from Konsole and it is much easier to explain than the long and drawn out console method. I am not sure why we are asking new users, who may want to try to install the latest and the "bestest", to install this way. There is no entering of cryptic $ commands and is all mouse driven.



With Ubuntu, I have to use the Terminal to install LO with the "dpkg -i *.deb" command, since it will not install correctly any other way. I do not know how to get all the files to install via Dolphin or other file manager. I just get "dependencies" not installed type of errors.

Maybe your OS with KDE[?] will do it, but the last time I tried, it would not with Ubuntu.

It is so simple to just un-archive the downloaded file and use the dpkg command on the set of DEB files.
