How to install Calligra Office in my Kubuntu 12.04 ?

Asked by Sukhendu Ghosal

I want to install Calligra office suite in my Kubuntu 12.04. How to install ? If I install it from synaptic is there any problem ?
I am asking because I have googled for it and found that I have to add backports ppa and have to upgrade kde 4.9 . But I have found it in packge manager already with kde 4.8.5 . What is the process to install it ?

If you want the absolute latest version see here

However there is an earlier version in the existing repos 1:2.4

To get that version all you have to do is open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and enter

sudo apt-get install calligra

If you want to wait for quantal however, due out later this week, the version is 1:2.5.3
