How To Install LibreOffice on Linux Mint 21

Install LibreOffice on Linux Mint 21

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install LibreOffice on Linux Mint 21. For those of you who didn’t know, LibreOffice is a great open-source alternative to Microsoft Office and offers similar functionality such as applications for creating and editing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, diagrams, and databases. It is a powerful alternative to commercial productivity suites and is available for free on Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of LibreOffice on Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa).
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for LibreOffice.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
