Ubuntu – Is it safe to install LibreOffice alongside OpenOffice.org


I would like to try out LibreOffice, but I'm worried about messing up my existing OpenOffice.org install. Can LibreOffice be safely installed alongside OpenOffice.org?

Best Answer

If you're installing via the PPA then no, it will replace OpenOffice.org with Libre Office.

If you're installing via the tarballs on their website, then tinhed's answer is correct.
