Hi all
Just to remid you that, Also all Debian, Ubuntu, Mint and other
deb-based Linux users can use this temporary repository, until
LibreOffice is included in main repos

1. Adding the repository:
sudo echo “deb
#gericom@hummer” | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list
2. Adding the signing key:
wget deb -q -O- | sudo
apt-key add -
And finaly:

sudo apt-get update
Excellent Work!

I found the following useful for Debian Squeeze(testing) XFCE:
1.(altered) add the line to /etc/apt/sources.list (remove quotes)

"deb  /"
(note: observe spaces around last slash '/')

2. same as above
3. sudo apt-get install libreoffice3
installs libreoffice (meta package?) and picks up dependencies
[ note: listing of what was installed:
Get:1  libreoffice-ure
1.7.0-7 [3,932kB]
Get:2 lobasis3.3-core0
1 3.3.0-7 [7,135kB]
Get:3 lobasis3.3-core0
2 3.3.0-7 [301kB]
Get:4 lobasis3.3-core0
3 3.3.0-7 [7,080kB]
Get:5 lobasis3.3-core0

Get:8 lobasis3.3-core0
7 3.3.0-7 [3,804kB]
Get:9 lobasis3.3-image
s 3.3.0-7 [16.4MB]
Get:10  libreoffice3
3.3.0-7 [194kB]

However, the libreoffice3 package didn't install the debian-menus deb
I must be missing something about apt-get usage as I had to manually
downloaded the deb archive and perform a "dpkg -i [file].deb" on it.

And presto - libreoffice is in my menus under "Office" [Yeah!]

The only problem I found was when I started the base program I received an
error message about:
"...missing vcl resource. This indicates that files vital to localization
are missing. You might have a corrupt installation."

Any suggestions as to how I can convince apt to use "en-us" when my
computer is using "en-ca"? Or should I just download the available en-us
LibO deb files?

Thanks Nikola.
I had seen the discussion thread in an earlier message about en-us only.
I was hoping that you might have an idea as to how to "encourage" apt to install the en-us packages.

However, a search found a reference to the installation of OxygenOffice (derivative of OpenOffice ) where they show apt-get commands.

To amend #3 above:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice3* lobasis3.3*
...will install "everything" including the extensions.

Using wildcard characters for install AFAIK is not recommended. However, I was able to get the full LibreOffice installed and running. Opening documents from OpenOffice3.2 worked without a hitch.

Thank you for your efforts!!
