How To Install LibreOffice 5.0.4 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivatives

Note: Debian packages have extension .deb; not .rpm. If you absolutely must install an .rpm into your Debian system, you will need to install alien to convert the .rpm to .deb format. All of which is unnecessary if you stick to using Debian formatted packages.

Hi, Guys, Thanks for your replies. I'll check on LibreOffice website for package suitable for a Debian distro. I'm using the Argentinian Debian version Huayra.

You should not need to get LibreOffice from their website. It is in the Debian repositories. You should install it from there instead. In order to get the Spanish language version of LibreOffice you should install the libreoffice-l10n-es package like this:
Code:
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-l10n-es

Linux does not work like Windows, you don't go to 3rd party websites and download unknown packages then install them to get your basic software. Linux uses a centralized, vetted package management system, 99.9% of the packages you need will be available there, only as a last resort do you venture out to 3rd party websites. Libre Office is in the standard repository for all major distros, you should never need to download anything from their webpage.
