LibreOffice is a modern office suite compatible with Microsoft Office. It features word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing, and database components.

Running LibreOffice

Select the desired component using the GNOME main menu at "Applications->Office". Base is the database application. Calc is the spreadsheet application. Draw is a vector drawing application. Impress is equivalent to PowerPoint. Math is an equation editor. Writer is the word processor application. Printer Administration allows for managing printer access.

Printer Setup

Red Hat Linux

  1. Open a terminal window.
  2. Run the command: /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/spadmin
  3. Find the printer you wish to set as default in the Installed printers list and click it.
  4. Click "Default".
  5. Click "Close". All LibreOffice print jobs will be sent to the default printer.

StarOffice on Solaris

Solaris 10 includes StarOffice instead of LibreOffice. StarOffice uses the same code as LibreOffice so document compatibility is expected. Much of the functionality works identically as well.
