LibreOffice has just released its latest version. And it promises to be a whole new performance experience. In this post, we will show you how to install LibreOffice 7 on Ubuntu 20.04 / Linux Mint 20.

So, LibreOffice is one of the jewels of open source. We are talking about a complete office suite capable of resulting in a free, cross-platform solution available to everyone. Therefore, it already comes installed in many Linux distributions but these do not include an updated version.

Install LibreOffice 7 on Ubuntu 20.04 / Linux Mint 20

There are several methods to install LibreOffice 7 on Ubuntu 20.04 or Linux Mint 20. However, I will show you the two easiest to do, and that allows you to easily keep it updated.

Installing LibreOffice 7 using PPA

The LibreOffice development team provides us with a dedicated PPA for LibreOffice 7. This repository is compatible with Ubuntu 20.04 as it could not be otherwise. So let’s use it.

So, open a terminal and run the following command:

:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-7-0
LibreOffice 7.0.x series stable backports ppa (and SRU-testing for focal)
This ppa will:
not contain alpha and beta releases like 7.0.0~beta2
not contain updates to the next major (7.1.x)
contain minor release updates and their release candidates -- these can be
considered stable
Note that for minor release updates (7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3 …) an rc2 is almost always exactly the same as the final version.
See: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan for details,
and: http://www.libreoffice.org/discover/new-features/ and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/7.0 for new features and fixes.
More info: https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/libreoffice-7-0
Press [ENTER] to continue or Ctrl-c to cancel adding it.
:~$ sudo apt-get update

And then, if you already have LibreOffice installed, upgrade your system:

:~$ sudo apt upgrade

Or:

:~$ sudo apt full-upgrade

It’s that simple. Next, launch it from the main menu.

Installing LibreOffice 7 with Flatpak

If we read the description of the previous repository we will notice that it will only provide updates to the 7.0 branch and not to the 7.1 branch.

To avoid this, it is possible to use Flatpak. As we know, Flatpak is a technology that allows us to create self-contained and secure packages for any Linux distribution.

The Flatpak package of LibreOffice is hosted in Flathub and they give us the instructions to install it.

So, install Flatpak in case you don’t have it installed:

:~$ sudo apt install flatpak

Then, install LibreOffice 7 with the following command:

:~$ flatpak install flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice

When the download is finished you can run it from the main menu. Or by executing the following command:

:~$ flatpak run org.libreoffice.LibreOffice
1.- LibreOffice 7 on Ubuntu 20.04
1.- LibreOffice 7 on Ubuntu 20.04

So, enjoy it.

Conclusion

LibreOffice 7 is available for download. In this post, you’ve learned what to do to get it right now on your Ubuntu 20.04. But this tutorial works for Linux Mint 20 and all distributions that are based on Ubuntu 20.04.
