      • Hi Prathamesh,

        Your command line output looks a bit messy. Could you please start over and run this guide commands step by step?

        If you extracted LibreOffice package, then looks like you are wrong path, when you run yum localinstall command…looks like you are first prathm user home and then root home, when you run those commands, so yes it won’t work.

        You could example change path to /tmp and make sure that you run all this guide commands exactly /tmp directory.

    3. Why would you want to install the old version of libreoffice? Now Libreoffice 4.2.3.3 is standard in fedora 20 repositories…

    5. Nice tip. I didn’t know it was this easy.
      Now I have both versions (4.4.7.2-1 from Fedora repos, donwloaded 5.0.4). How can I remove the old 4.4.7.2 without affecting 5.0.4?
