How to install LibreOffice on SteamOS

SteamOS is now in public beta. Here's how to run LibreOffice on SteamOS.

  1. Follow the excellent guide on how to get and install SteamOS here. Replace the package name xorg-xserver by xserver-xorg in the doc
  2. while still in recovery mode, set a root password: passwd
  3. login as user desktop, start a terminal
  4. su with the root password
  5. nano -w /etc/apt/sources.list
  6. add "deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy main" to file (maybe this is not even needed)
  7. add "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main" to file and save
  8. apt-get update
  9. apt-get -t wheezy-backports install libreoffice

and voilà, LibreOffice should run perfectly!
