Call for testing: libreoffice 5.4.3
LibreOffice is a free and open source office suite, developed by The Document Foundation. The LibreOffice suite comprises programs for word processing, the creation and editing of spreadsheets, slideshows, diagrams and drawings, working with databases, and composing mathematical formulae.
How to install
snap install libreoffice --candidate
Note that the snap can coexist with the ubuntu packages. If you wish to remove the ubuntu packages to use solely the snap, you can do:
sudo apt remove "libreoffice*"
sudo apt autoremove
At the moment that version of the snap is available for amd64 processors only. It is expected to work on any linux distribution that supports snaps, including on Wayland where previously it didn’t work.
This revision is a minor update from the one currently in the stable channel (5.4.2).
Since snapd 2.29 has been released, the snap doesn’t ship fonts any longer, instead it uses the ones on the host system exposed by the desktop interface.
I’m interested in your feedback on any tasks you perform using all the apps in the libreoffice suite.
Please report any issues you encounter in this thread. Thanks!
