      Thanks for notifying about those broken links of LibreOffice download. We’ve updated the article with latest downloads to LibreOffice packages.

    Libreoffice 5.2 x86-64 version is getting installed perfectly on RHEL 5.9, But unable to run it. Running from command line gives the error “GLIBC_2.17 needed” . The glibc on RHEL 5.9 is only 2.5. Is there any way to run Libreoffice 5.2 on RHEL 5.9.

    • Ravi Saive says:


      Latest LibreOffice requires GLIBC_2.17, i think you should upgrade your system to most recent version or upgrade your GLIBC version..

      • Adam Basha says:

        Please tell me, how to upgrade GLIBC in RHEL 5.9

        • Ravi Saive says:


          The only way to get the latest version of GLIBC version is to upgrade your CentOS to 6.x version or else compile it from source in current version, but I think its more complex and will get lots of dependencies issues..

  4. Sagar Zade says:

    After downloading the archive, size is only 4K. Due to this, it is not getting extracted.
    If you have any other download link, kindly provide the same.
    Thanks in advance!

    • Ravi Saive says:


      I’ve just tried all the links and they are working fine and have more than 200MB in size, could you try downloading on different machine or network and see?

      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

    this seems to work.

    then I downloaded from libreoffice main page this for the offline help

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

    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?

  10. Yolo says:

    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 >= needed by libobasis5.0-core-
    package libobasis5.0-en-US-base- is not installable.
    package libobasis5.0-en-US-calc- is not installable.

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