Ubuntu 12.04 upgrade to libreoffice 4.1

Libreoffice is great open source authoring tool like MS-Office.

LibreOffice 4.1 comes with many changes, including Unity appmenu support, option to use Firefox Personas, better interoperability with DOCX and RTF documents, a new LibreOffice Impress Remote Android App and many other changes

LibreOffice can be installed in Ubuntu by using a a large archive of deb files that can be downloaded from LibreOffice.org, but the packages available in the PPA (or in the official repositories) come with some Ubuntu-specific tweaks – for instance, the LibreOffice debs downloaded from the LibreOffice website didn’t have built-in Ubuntu appmenu (global menu) support, at least in my test, while the packages in the PPA have this by default, even for Ubuntu 12.04. Another advantage of using a PPA is getting automatic updates / easier to upgrade to newer LibreOffice versions.

Upgrading Steps

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-1
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Now  you have Libreoffice 4.1.
