Libre Office 5 PPA
« on: October 13, 2015, 12:06:36 pm »
Hi everyone, I thought I'd give LibreOffice 5 a try.  I used a ppa to upgrade from the repos version to 5.*.  Wow, it's fast.  It opened up so quickly, I thought there must be something wrong with it.   I've played around with it and it's appears to be very stable.  If you already have LibreOffice installed from the repos, use the following link to upgrade it to 5.*: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/08/install-libreoffice-50-in-ubuntu-or.html.  If you don't like it, or it doesn't work for you.  There's downgrading instructions to return it to the repos version  ;).
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

Thanks for the heads up, I just added the ppa and installed it.  It does indeed open surprisingly fast, what a breath of fresh air.
