    Question Unable to install Libreoffice

    Juste upgraded from 12.10 to 13.04 and I lost Libreoffice.

    So first of all I did: apt-get purge libreoffice*

    So, after adding Libreoffice PPA, I tried to install and got this:

    sudo apt-get install libreoffice

    Lecture des listes de paquets... Fait
    Construction de l'arbre des dépendances
    Lecture des informations d'état... Fait
    Certains paquets ne peuvent être installés. Ceci peut signifier
    que vous avez demandé l'impossible, ou bien, si vous utilisez
    la distribution unstable, que certains paquets n'ont pas encore
    été créés ou ne sont pas sortis d'Incoming.
    L'information suivante devrait vous aider à résoudre la situation :
    Les paquets suivants contiennent des dépendances non satisfaites :
    libreoffice : Dépend: libreoffice-base mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-calc mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-core (= 1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1) mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-draw mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-impress mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-math mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-report-builder-bin mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: libreoffice-writer mais ne sera pas installé
    Dépend: python3-uno (>= 4.0~) mais ne sera pas installé ou
    python-uno mais ne sera pas installé
    Recommande: libreoffice-gnome mais ne sera pas installé ou
    libreoffice-kde mais ne sera pas installé
    E: Impossible de corriger les problèmes, des paquets défectueux sont en mode « garder en l'état ».

    Please help.

    Re: Unable to install Libreoffice

    Why not just install the version in the repositories?

    Forgot to tell you that before doing all that, I did try to install from repositories...

    Re: Unable to install Libreoffice

    I'm installing it on RR from the repo right now. I'll let you know what I see.

    Edit:

    OK. Installed just fine from the repo for me.

    Did you have Raring fully updated when you tried this?

    Seems I'm the only one stuck like this...

    Is there any other way to purge and install Libreoffice without any dependancies problem?

    Re: Unable to install Libreoffice

    I don't do upgrades so only a guess -
    if you upgrade with -proposed source enabled then possibly your new sources list will have -proposed enabled
    (in this case raring-proposed

    If that's true & the are incomplete source packages in raring-proposed that could cause an issue (as is currently the case with LO

    So ck. your sources, if proposed is enabled then disable. Remove any LO packages, update your sources then re-install LO as seen fit.

    Or just wait for new LO to get complete

    Re: Unable to install Libreoffice

    Well that's 2 recent cases of upgrade with proposed enabled (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2123696), so I'd say that it's a poor idea to do so when upgrading to a dev version & in general.
    Either way, users that have proposed enabled at any time should refrain from updating without control & or paying attention
    (as in some terminal command & typing y without reading back or using software-updater & accepting a partial ect.

    synaptic is best for such activities if marking individually or in small groups

    Re: Unable to install Libreoffice

    This is the reason for the installing issues from RR repos right now:

    The new release version 4.0.1 is here (but only partly in RR repos):
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/raring/...4.0.1-0ubuntu1

    The 64-bit packages are all in repos, but the complete installation needs also a few architecture independent packages, like:
    - fonts-opensymbol-2:102.2+LibO4.0.1-0ubuntu1_all.deb
    - libreoffice-common-1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1_all.deb
    - libreoffice-style-human-1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1_all.deb (or alternatively one other style package)

    Without these, the intallation is broken.
    This is what happens now.
    All the 64-bit packages are being upgraded to version 4.0.1, but because the *all.deb packages are not yet in repo, the installation gets broken.

    Well there are two things you can do, if you ended up having a broken LO:
    1. disable the proposed repo, remove LO completely and then reinstall old LO. Without proposed repo enabled you get the working old installation back.
    Then sit back and wait for a few days until all the new LO packages are in the repos.
    2. if you want the new 4.0.1 now, then manually download the necessary packages from the link above and install them from terminal (or console) with dpkg.
    Now sit back and enjoy the new working LO.

    If you get warnings when installing manually with dpkg (sudo dpkg -i *.deb), repeat the command.
    You can also install the easier (less dependencies) packages first (libreoffice-style-human, libreoffice-common, uno-libs3, ure, fonts-opensymbol).
    Also see that the package libcmis-0.3-3 is installed.
