    updating libre office

    Hi,
    jsut installed 12.04....totally happy!
    Just curious: I have used Libre Office for some time - even on my old w8 os - and I notice the one that comes with ubuntu is Libre Office 3.
    Now there's Libre Office 4, which has been out for some time......How can I update to that? Or should I just go to their site & download like I would on w8?
    Many thanks,
    david
    Sorry, 1 more thing: I built a website on w8 & now with Ubuntu it all looks a little different? Is that normal?

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-0
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    use that in terminal but i wont suggest u updating or adding ppa's even though it is highly stable........

    Hmmmm. OK, thanks.
    Re your message about my site - perhaps I should have been more clear_
    I built a site using Page Plus on my w8 os (Page Plus is of course exclusive to MS!!)
    Everythng looked fine - I was using Firefox (as I am now)
    I just took a look at it after I changed to Ubuntu and there is text missing and it's as if the page isn't big enough sometimes???
    any ideas?

    Your web site would have used Windows fonts. May be. Which Ubuntu does not have as a default. Did you put in the CSS file alternative fonts or generic fonts? Also the character encoding may be a Windows encoding - Western (Windows-1252) and not Unicode (UTF-8).
