Hi

You'd better pick one of the Slackware versions.
You have the choice between the Slackware-compiled version provided by AlienBob
http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/libr...ackage-update/
or the SlackBuilds.org repackaged RPM
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...e/libreoffice/

Cheers

@cendryon advice is OK, but assuming that:
- you insist on using vanilla Libre Office packages,
- you are rather experienced user
than the answer to your question is: rpm. Busybox can install them for you:
Code:
 
#!/bin/busybox sh
#
 read -p "Do you wish to download and install LibreOffice now (y/n)?: " ANSWER
 if [ $ANSWER = y ]; then
   URL=http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/3.5.0.3/rpm/x86/
   FILE1=LibO_3.5.0rc3_Linux_x86_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz
   FILE2=LibO_3.5.0rc3_Linux_x86_helppack-rpm_en-US.tar.gz
   busybox rm -f /tmp/$FILE1 2>/dev/null
   echo "Downloading installer:"
   busybox wget $URL$FILE1 -P /tmp
   busybox rm -f /tmp/$FILE2 2>/dev/null
   echo "Downloading help pack:"
   busybox wget $URL$FILE2 -P /tmp
   if [ ! -e /tmp/$FILE1 ]; then
     echo "Error in downloading. Check your internet connection."
     echo "You can close this window now."
     read
     else
     busybox tar -vxz -f /tmp/$FILE1 -C /tmp
     busybox rm /tmp/$FILE1
     busybox mkdir /tmp/oohlp
     busybox tar -vxz -f /tmp/$FILE2 -C /tmp/oohlp
     busybox rm /tmp/$FILE2
     LIST1=$(busybox ls /tmp/LibO*/RPMS/*.rpm)
     LIST2=$(busybox ls /tmp/oohlp/LibO*/RPMS/*.rpm)
     for i in $LIST1 $LIST2; do
       echo "Installing $i..."
       busybox rpm -i $i
       busybox rm $i
     done
     busybox rm -fr /tmp/LibO*
     busybox rm -fr /tmp/oohlp
     busybox ln -sf /opt/libreoffice3.5/program/soffice.bin /usr/bin/ooffice
    fi
 fi
EOF
REMARKS:
- you must have busybox in /bin,
- you should adjust URL, FILE1 and FILE2 to meet your needs,
- it will be your headache to integrate with KDE. (*)

Good luck!

The Slackware-compiled version provided by AlienBob is more user-friendly in term of installation.
Libreoffice3.4.5 installed.
