LibreOffice 5.2.0 beta2 as a snap package

What’s been happening in your world?

What have you been up to?

— Arctic Monkeys, Snap out of it

So — here is what I have been up to:

LibreOffice 5.2.0 beta2 as a snap package
LibreOffice 5.2.0 beta2 installed as a snap on Ubuntu 16.04

The upcoming LibreOffice 5.2 packaged as a nice new snap package . This:

  • is pretty much a vanilla build of LibreOffice 5.2 beta2, using snapcraft, which is making packaging quite easy
  • contains all the applications: Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw, Math, Base
  • installs easily on the released current LTS version of Ubuntu: 16.04
  • allows you to test and play with the upcoming LibreOffice version to your hearts delight without having to switch to a development version of Ubuntu

So — how can you “test and play with the upcoming LibreOffice version to your hearts delight” with this on Ubuntu 16.04? Like this:

wget http://people.canonical.com/~bjoern/snappy/libreoffice_5.2.0.0.beta2_amd64.snap{,.sha512sum} sha512sum -c libreoffice_5.2.0.0.beta2_amd64.snap.sha512sum && sudo snap install --devmode libreoffice_5.2.0.0.beta2_amd64.snap /snap/bin/libreoffice

and there you have a version of LibreOffice 5.2 running — for example, you can prepare yourself for the upcoming LibreOffice Bug Hunting Session . And its even quite easy to remove again:

sudo snap remove libreoffice

This is one of the things that snap packages will make a lot easier: upgrading or  downgrading versions of an application, having multiple installed in parallel and much more. Watch out as there are more exciting news about this coming up!
