LibreOffice 5.3 is not yet available in Fedora’s software center. If you are LibreOffice user, then version 5.3 should make you super happy. It comes with the much-awaited ribbon interface and tons of new features. In fact this is the biggest upgrade in LibreOffice’s history!

Before installing version 5.3, I recommend to uninstall the previous version as conflicts may arise. To remove the previous version launch ‘Terminal’ and enter the following command:

sudo dnf remove libreoffice*

Enter root password and then enter ‘y’ when you see the prompt in terminal.
