    The readme in the archive will tell you how (in detail hopefully) to build the package. Make sure to read the dependencies and install them first.

    I believe a .deb is availble for Libre now. Deb's are easier to install than .tar.gz's.

    The above post definitely does not contain any sarcasm at all.

    Note: there are instructions here to install the PPA; and LibreOffice. (for Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and 11.04)
