How to install LibreOffice 5.3 in Fedora 25

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.

STEP 2: Extract the contents of the downloaded tar.gz file.

STEP 3: Launch Terminal and navigate into the RPMS sub-directory in the extracted folder. Notice that you folder name may be different.

cd Downloads

cd RPMS

STEP 4: Enter the following command to install all the RPM binaries in that folder.

sudo dnf install *.rpm

That’s it.

  1. 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.
