Linux下Snap格式的LibreOffice

Snaps are fast to install, easy to create, safe to run, and they update automatically and transactionally so the application is always fresh and never broken. They aim to work on any distribution or device, from IoT devices to servers, desktops to mobile devices.

Installing LibreOffice from the store

Current versions of LibreOffice are available in the Ubuntu store for amd64.

If you have snapd already installed on your system, all you need to do to install LibreOffice from the store is:

sudo snap install --channel=beta libreoffice

If you are missing the snap command you might need to install snapd first.

Running the LibreOffice version installed as snap

After installing, the version of LibreOffice installed via snap can be started with the command:

/snap/bin/libreoffice

Omitting the full path likely starts the version of LibreOffice installed by the distribution instead, if there is one.
