I'm using elementary OS Loki and I was wondering how can I install the new Libreoffice 6.0, possibly also setting up the new elementary OS icons (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/6.0#GUI).

Just install libreoffice-style-elementary from the distro repositories. You don’t need to uninstall your distro-packaged LibreOffice for the version downloadable from libreoffice.org. After you install this package, the icon theme will be selectable from Tools > Options > LibreOffice > View.


Here my fast reply:

Step 1 Remove the installed version of Libreoffice

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice-core && sudo apt-get autoremove

Step 2 Download Libreoffice 6.0 archive from the website in your Downloads folder:


Step 3 Extract the archive, and enter:

sudo apt install -f ./~/Downloads/LibreOffice*/DEBS/*.deb

As far as I can see, the elementary icons set is the default one!


  • It is not necessary (and in fact, not recommended) to remove the distro-packaged version of LibreOffice.
