    "If you are using Gnome desktop use after adding the ppa above use this command to install Openoffice"

    It should be LibreOffice and not OpenOffice.

    I began to use LibreOffice but found that the print dialogue had changed and that I was not able to print brochure with short edge flip to make booklets. I use this feature always.
    Is this possible with LO?
