LibreOffice Logo - How to install LibO on Linux

This article describes how to install LibreOffice 4.4 or 4.5 on Debian-based / Ubuntu-based Linux distributions, such as Linux Mint, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Debian and Ubuntu. This installation method is based on the official .deb packages.

LibreOffice 4.4 has been released on January 2015.
LibreOffice 4.5 is scheduled to be released on August 2015. Find more information on LibreOffice 4.4 & 4.5 release dates on the official release plan.

A. Remove bundled LibreOffice

LibreOffice 4.4 can be installed alongside of Libre Office 4.3, but conflicts may occur when trying to install the desktop-integration (debian-menus) package.

The desktop-integration package is not mandatory, but provides menu shortcuts for LibreOffice. If you don’t install desktop-integration, you can launch LibO with the following command:

If you’re installing a development release (Beta) of LO 4.5, you can launch it with the following command:

To remove prior installations of LibreOffice:
sudo apt-get remove libreoffice-core

If you also want to remove LibO configuration files, use the purge switch:
sudo apt-get remove –purge libreoffice-core

B. Install LibreOffice

Step 1 of 3 – Download compressed packages

Download LibreOffice 4.4 from the official downlad page:

Select Linux x86 (deb) for 32 bits systems or Linux x64 (deb) for 64 bits systems.

This how-to supposes that the downloaded file (and laguage packs) is saved in the “Downloads” directory situated in your home directory.

Download as many language packs as you need.

Step 2 of 3 – Extract the .deb packages

The downloaded file is a compressed .tar.gz archive. In case you want to learn more on these extensions: tar, gzip. To extract this juicy archive, open the “Downloads” directory. Look for a file named:

LibreOffice_4.4.0_Linux_x86_deb.tar.gz  or

right-click on it and select “extract here “. Repeat the extraction process for all language packs. The .tar.gz archive(s) can now be deleted.

Step 3 of 3 – Install .deb packages

Open a terminal.
Change the current directory to the location of the .deb packages:
cd ~/Downloads/LibreOffice_4.4.0.x_Linux_x86_deb/DEBS

or for the 64 bits version:
cd ~/Downloads/LibreOffice_4.4.0.x_Linux_x86-64_deb/DEBS

(No need to write everything: use Tab ↹ to autocomplete the command line, or copy and paste with the middle-click mouse button)

Finally, install all .deb packages:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

LibreOffice is now installed, but the program shortcuts still don’t appear in the menu. Move to the “desktop-integration” subdirectory and install the desktop-integration package:
cd desktop-integration
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

In case you’re installing language packs, repeat the cd and dpkg steps for each language pack.

You’re done! No need to restart, LibreOffice is ready to be used.

Criando repositórios no Moodle 2.0

Como pegar arquivos grandes enviados via FTP dentro do Moodle 2.0

File system repository

Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.0. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: File system repository.

The file system repository allows users within Moodle to access files which have been uploaded via FTP into designated folders on the server. A file system repository may be available site wide for everyone; within an individual course or for an individual user.(However – see this tracker entryregarding course and individual repositories)

This must be done by a systems admin who has write permissions to the server directories.

Creating folders for your file system repositories

  • Find the moodledata folder on the server
  • Inside it, create a folder called “repository”
  • Inside that folder, create as many folders as you need, named appropriately.


  • FTP into the appropriate folder the files you want. (The folders can hold all types of files)

Enabling the File System repository plugin

  • Go to Settings > Site administration > Plugins > Repositories > Manage Repositories;
  • Select from the drop down next to File sytem “Enabled and visible”


Setting up a site-wide file system repository

  • Once the repository is enabled as above, click on the “Settings” link to the right.
  • Scroll down to Repositories instances of the site
  • Click Create a repository instance


  • Give it a name and (if there are several folders on the server) choose from the dropdown the one you want. Click save


  • It will now be available in the file picker in all courses.

NOTE: Just repeat the process to get more than one site wide file system repository

Setting up a repository inside a course

NOTE: A regular user needs to have been given permission to do this by admin (MORE DETAILS SOON)

  • Go to the desired course and click on “repositories” in the administration block
  • Scroll down and click “Create File System instance”


  • Follow the same process as here

Setting up an individual file system repository instance

NOTE: A regular user needs to have been given permission to do this by admin (MORE DETAILS SOON)

  • In the navigation block, click on “my profile”
  • Click on “repositories”
  • Scroll down and click “create File System instance”
  • Follow the same process as here
  • This will create a personal file system repository connecting just you to a folder on the server.


Using it

If you try to add a file in Moodle, then the File Picker should show you your new file system repository, and you should be able to browse it and select files to use.

Note that file types are respected (based on file extensions), so if you are adding an image in the editor, then you won’t see Office docs (for example) appear in the File Picker.


Repository permissions

This repository is accessible by default to administrators, course creators, teachers, editing teachers and managers, but not to guests or students. This capability can be changed to control access to users with specific roles.
