How to Install LibreOffice 6.0 on Ubuntu or Linux Mint

While users of various rolling GNU/Linux distributions, such as Arch Linux, OpenSuSE or Solus, can already install the major LibreOffice 6.0 office suite directly from the official software repositories of their distros, that’s not the case for Ubuntu or Linux Mint, as users have to rely on third-party repositories or the official packages. Luckily, The Document Foundation provides Debian/Ubuntu packages for all LibreOffice releases, so it’s quite easy to install the latest version on your Linux computer if you’re using a Debian-based distro like Ubuntu or Linux Mint. They also provide a regularly maintained PPA (Personal Package Archive), which makes the installation a breeze for newcomers.
