OnlyOffice is among the top alternatives for Microsoft Office suite which are available on Linux desktop. It is open-source and free to use at an individual level. This application is very similar to Microsoft Office in terms of looks, so if you are migrating from a Windows environment then this will suit you more than LibreOffice.
In this tutorial, I will show you the Installation process of OnlyOffice on every major Linux distribution.
Depending upon your Linux Distribution, you can follow these steps to install the software on your PC :
On Debian and Ubuntu-based distributions:
Visit the official download page of the application and download the DEB package available for Debian 8+ and Ubuntu 14.04+, now open a terminal and type the following commands after the download is finished :
cd ~/Downloads/ sudo dpkg -i Application_name.deb
On Fedora Workstation
Similarly, from the download page, install the RPM package file, but before installing it, let’s first install all the dependencies required by this application :
sudo dnf install libXScrnSaver liberation-narrow-fonts
Now, we’re ready to install the application, just navigate to the Downloads directory and install the application by typing :
cd ~/Downloads/ sudo rpm -i Package_name.rpm
On Arch Linux and Arch-based distributions
# For yay users : yay -S onlyoffice-desktopeditors # Or for Paru users, type : yay -S onlyoffice-desktopeditors
OnlyOffice although promising is not the first choice of many users because usually LibreOffice is already installed by default on many distributions. But, I think you should try it out since there is no harm in trying. The application is already available in online mode, but the tutorial I gave here is for the offline application.
