libreoffice on fedora

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.

Thank you very much for this tutorial, it works well on Fedora29 too.
Instead of switching to the RPMS directory with cd, it is easier to point to the RPMS directory in the browser and then select “Open in Terminal”. Then this procedure should be repeated with the packages LANGUAGE PACK and then with the HELP PACK.
