Call for testing: libreoffice 6.0.4


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.

This is a minor update, currently in release candidate phase (RC2).


How to install

snap install libreoffice --candidate


snap refresh 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

Requested Setups

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 Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04, 17.10 and 18.04.

Known issues

Known bugs are tracked on launchpad.

Specific Tests

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 while testing that version in this thread. Thanks!

I just pushed a new revision (63) to the candidate channel. This is a rebuild against newer packages in the ubuntu archive, to pick up security fixes. No functional changes in the snap are expected.

They say no news is good news.
I have promoted revision 63 to the stable channel.
Enjoy and please report issues here or on Launchpad.
