Hi All,

A simple copy and paste works really well!!!!!! No typing necessary.
Just make sure you have the file saved as a .txt that you open with GEdit.

When I was new to Linux (Ubuntu) and didn't understand anything about
what the system was really doing or about the file structure, OpenOffice
was updated, and it wasn't going to be included for Ubuntu users until
the next update, which was three or 4 months down the road. I ran across
this method as a way to update my OpenOffice without waiting. The same
thing took place with the next OpenOffice release. Again I found the
updated instructions on the Internet. I still use this as it is easy to
update computers. I've installed Ubuntu on about 23 or so. It is also
easy for a new person to Ubuntu since they don't have to understand
changing directories, etc. Simple extract the download to the desktop,
and then copy and paste the three commands into the terminal.


This I also agree with as well. If the scripts fit for everyone. However, there is no sense making installing LibreOffice (the downloaded files) sound so complicated for Linux. You don't really need to know much about installing .deb's or .rpm's other than to "right-click" and the files and picking the right choices. That's all.

In fact, if you are just installing one .deb or .rpm, on most systems, you just have to double-click on the .deb or .rpm file and it will call up the distro's installer. It's just that simple. Just like it is done on Windows.
