I have been dealing with this issue for years, going back to the Open
How do you install Libreoffice under Ubuntu?
Where are the step by step, clearly documented instructions?
When are they not either on the download page in LO or a clear link on
the download page?
Here's what I find on the net including a google search:
1) Use the Software Center in Ubuntu. Never mind that it is not the
current version. Never mind that the version is not posted in the
"more Info" description, along with the date of the version.
20 Go to libreoffice.org. Press the big download button. Now what?
Start googling for instructions.
Expect the instructions to not tell you:
an explanation of each command.
where the program will end up on your system.
whether it will automatically get rid of the remnant files and even
the original downloaded files.
how to deal with the help, and why.
3) Google like I did last night and find that there are "ppa"s, with a
well written explanation of the "fresh ppa" being better and why. Now
try to find how to install the most current version, whether you have a
copy on your computer or not.
How to deal with dependencies, not just finding out that you have
"dependency problems" but also that LO will not install due to them.
It seems that this is a universal Linux problem. If you don't know the
intricacies of Linux, then you shouldn't be using it. So much for
attaining more market share.
