Hi :)
Hmmm, are you a regular distro-hopper?  Probably a good idea to install
onto a new separate partition so that you can easily get back to your
regular OS if things are not as smooth as they first appear!  Should be fun
though :)  Good luck and happy hunting!
Regards from
Tom :)

I haven't used Manjaro before, but since it's a derivative of Arch
Linux, LibreOffice must be in it's official repo, and installing
LibreOffice must be the same as it is in Arch linux, just try:

pacman -S libreoffice

This will install the most recent libreoffice release for you.

You can also check the arch wiki about libreoffice:

I'm not completely sure of the question but out of curiosity and
booted a 'live' version of manjaro and LO is definitely on board.

the distribution looks quite interesting. I didn't foresee having
the patience for arch but manjaro is good for the impatient.

it found everything on my acer aspire 1 725-0802 without any fiddling.
I prefer the 'trinity desktop' to kde4 but this version looks quite

I may actually install it. beats doing real work

I was curious as I'm currently in the process of migrating
my distribution to manjaro Linux which is the best download for it? I'm
having some confusion as Manajro is a Arch derivative that is neither
RPM or DEB based, for those that don't know Arch has the AUR (Arch user
repository) which is essentially one massive storehouse for all the
packages available for GNU/linux at this time. It works on the same
principle as Ubuntu's PPA system except instead of there
being multiple depositary's there is just one. Arch uses a rolling
release model so it is at the cutting edge of all software / kernel
changes, However the same can not be said for their LO packages.

When I grow up, I may try Arch....  ;-)
