A Good Guide on “How to get the newest version of LibreOffice on Chrome OS”

If you have been following along here at “What’s On My PC“, you probably noticed that the Linux install option on the Google Chromebook has piqued my interest. So far, I have learned some Linux terminal commands, have installed the Linux version of the Vivaldi web browser (now my default browser) on my Chromebook; AND, now I want to pass onto you on “How to get the newest version of Libre Office on Chrome OS” (instruction provided by Chrome Unboxed). If you want to install the Linux version of LibreOffice on your Chromebook I strongly suggest you follow the instructions as provided by the web site “Chrome Unboxed”. I initially installed LibreOffice from the Linux terminal window. Well, it will install; BUT, do not do that in this case. The version that is pulled down and installed through the terminal is not stable and when I was finished, it was in black and white (icons and everything). I had to uninstall that version and that is when I found (through further research) the instructions at Chrome Unboxed (that was posted on March 1, 2020). After following those instructions, I now have a fully functional office suite on my Chromebook that runs like a charm and is very stable. Thank you Chrome Unboxed for these instructions…

THREE FREE Alternatives to Buying Microsoft Office… (actually FIVE)

Yesterday I posted the article, “A Microsoft Office Alternative That Is Totally FREE…” and I received comments suggesting some alternatives that you may want to explore. If you know of additional alternatives to Microsoft Office, feel free to use the comment section to add your suggestions.

I have installed and experienced each of the software options below. All three are good options that will save you the cost of subscribing to a long term software option like Microsoft Office. As I mentioned in my previous post, it is a matter of personal preference and circumstance. If Microsoft Office is the core product required in your workplace or school, then purchasing Microsoft Office for home is a good choice (and makes sense). If you are in a situation where Microsoft Office plays no role in what you are doing in life, then any of the choices below are good choices.

To prove my point… I managed a network in a government agency where the core product I used and installed on all the PC’s was Microsoft Office. When I retired, I stopped using Microsoft Office (to save myself money) and now use one of the FREE options below. Many people get hooked on that they “have to install” Microsoft Office or their world will fall apart.

Also, just to point out, if you set up a FREE Microsoft Outlook account with Microsoft, you can use the FREE online watered-down versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint that works quite well. Oh, don’t forget you also have Google Docs
