How to Install LibreOffice on Ubuntu 16.04 & Higher

    LibreOffice is a powerful office suite – its clean interface and feature-rich tools help you unleash your creativity and enhance your productivity. LibreOffice includes several applications that make it the most powerful Free and Open Source office suite on the market: Writer (word processing), Calc (spreadsheets), Impress (presentations), Draw (vector graphics and flowcharts), Base (databases), and Math (formula editing).

LibreOffice Changelog:
  • LibreOffice uses wrong attribute for feature "shrink-to-fit"
  • Cannot run LibreOffice, api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing (for local solution see comment 7)
  • Cannot paste formatted text (.rtf) from clipboard on Mac. It comes always unformatted. Still broken in 5.3.6 and 5.4.1
  • Formula cells not recalculated after column was inserted and in a shifted column a formula cell is edited/added when the next column is empty (EDITING)
  • LibreOffice installs but will not run on Windows XP SP3 (32-bit)
  • LibreOffice crashes when checking for updates ( OpenGL )
  • FILESAVE: PPT: bullets disappear after RT
  • FILESAVE: PPT: Graphics change their shapes after RT 
  • See announcement for details.
