      @Rajen,

      Try to remove LibreOffice completely from the system with the help of following commands.

      $ sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*
      $ sudo apt-get install -f
      

      Then try to install again newest LibreOffice as instructed in this article..

    I installed version 5.1.2 rc2 on Ubuntu 14 64 bit (trusty) using synaptic from repo http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu

    this seems to work.

    then I downloaded from libreoffice main page this for the offline help
    http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/5.1.2/deb/x86_64/LibreOffice_5.1.2_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-US.tar.gz

    when trying to install this package I get an error:
    libobasis5.1-en-us-help
    Dependency is not satisfiable: libobasis5.1-en-us (>= 5.1.2.2)

    What do I do now?

    Hi. I have libreoffice 4.3 installed on my Debian 8. When I try to uninstall libreoffice 4.3, the apt-get wants to remove gnome. How can I uninstall libreoffice 4.3 without remove gnome?

    Thanks for the tutorial.
    Just a comment on Fedora 22 : the command is now dnf install *.rpm but the installation failed :
    Error: nothing provides libreoffice5.0-ure >= 5.0.0.5 needed by libobasis5.0-core-5.0.0.5-5.x86_64.
    package libobasis5.0-en-US-base-5.0.0.5-5.x86_64 is not installable.
    package libobasis5.0-en-US-calc-5.0.0.5-5.x86_64 is not installable.

    Needed to install package per package in finding the right order manually and works fine finally !
