THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO IMPROVE LIBREOFFICE IN DEEPIN OS

LibreOffice

WARNING: Remember that you must have installedDeepines Store para poder obtener la versión de LibreOffice compatible con este tutorial. (Actualizado en abril, 18, 2021 para comandos de mejoría de traducción al español)

LibreOffice it is a powerful office suite; its clean interface and powerful tools allow you to unleash your creativity and increase your productivity. LibreOffice incorporates several applications that make it the most powerful free and open source office suite on the market: Writer, the word processor, Calc, the spreadsheet, Impress, the presentation editor, Draw, our drawing application and flowcharts, Base, our database and interface with other databases, and Math for editing mathematical formulas.

LIBREOFFICE CURRENTLY IN DEEPIN

When starting LibreOffice for the first time in Deepin We noticed that the interface is shown as an old application, without the tabbed interface and the truth is a bit boring and not very interesting. This sadly is the same case in most distributions, but today you will learn how to change that.

LibreOffice in Deepin - Initial Appearance
LET'S START IMPROVING THE LIBREOFFICE INTERFACE

Durante esta guía vamos a seguir algunos pasos para mejorar algunos aspectos visuales de LibreOffice hasta que tengamos un diseño mucho más llamativo y además más útil. Para comenzar abrimos la Deepin terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and paste the following command:

sudo apt install libreoffice-gtk3
Installing LibreOffice-GTK3

By doing the above we have installed GTK3 element support to the application and you will notice that its look starts to get better. The interface begins to have some visual aspects that initially it did not have.

We have already improved the LibreOffice interface a little in Deepin
INSTALLING THE BREEZE, ELEMENTARY AND COLIBRE ICONS

Above we began to improve additional elements of LibreOffice, now we are going to improve its appearance even more by installing some icon styles for LibreOffice, these are "Breeze", "Elementary" and "Colibre" which will enhance the beauty of the application general. We open the Deepin Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and paste the following command:

sudo apt install libreoffice-style-breeze libreoffice-style-elementary libreoffice-style-colibre

Set icon theme: let's Tools> Options> View> Icon Style. Once here we choose Breeze or Breeze Dark, depending on the color of the theme to taste, be it light or dark.

Modify the Style icons

The icons will look smooth and consistent, even in night mode. Besides looking modern to the eyes. It is not the only icon pack, for example, we have Colibre for colorful details.

INSTALLING MICROSOFT FONTS

We are going to continue improving the appearance of the application in this step by installing Microsoft fonts, as explained in our Wiki article. To achieve this we will do something very simple. We simply open the Deepin Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and paste the following command:

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
ENABLING THE TABS INTERFACE

The tab mode is one of the most requested and desired features by many users of this office suite, in this step we will show you how to achieve it. First you have to go to «Tools -> Options—> Advanced, activate the option Activate Experimental Features»Click on the« OK »button, we restart LibreOffice, after that the tab view option appears.

Then to achieve what we want, that is to say that LibreOffice shows its Tabs Mode, we are going to access "View -> User Interface" through the top menu and choose "In Tab".

At this moment and after having followed all the steps described so far, you will have a modern and useful interface in your LibreOffice. On par with all other modern office suites. You now have LibreOffice with a beautiful and useful interface, but we haven't finished our work yet.

TRANSLATE LIBREOFFICE TO SPANISH

Most likely, you want to be able to use LibreOffice in Spanish. Achieving that is easy and you will achieve it in the following way. We open the Deepin Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and paste the following commands:

sudo apt install libreoffice-l10n-es
sudo apt install libreoffice-help-es
INSTALL MYSPELL PACKAGE

Now it would be necessary to install the package MySpell corresponding to the Spanish dictionary so that the spelling and grammar checker works (Thanks to @juanmaguelfo per suggestion) using the following command:

sudo apt install myspell-es

Restart the application and you will immediately notice that the interface is now displayed in the Spanish language and that its entire appearance has changed to one that is much more pleasant to your eyes.

LibreOffice in Deepin OS - Final Appearance

And that's all in the definitive guide to improve the appearance of LibreOffice in Deepin 20 and higher. You have greatly improved its appearance and given it a look much more modern, in addition to making it more useful for you as a user of the Spanish language. If you have questions, doubts or suggestions regarding this article, do not hesitate to tell us what you think in a comment.

Now yes, you already have a good competition with WPS. Since LibreOffice 7 already supports Office documents, in addition to its integration with its free format. To keep moving forward. Greetings Alejandro.

Hello, good morning, I am new to using Linux, I have tried to put my libreoffice in Spanish following all the indications that are shown here and in other forums and I cannot change the language to Spanish. I am using Deepin 20 as a native system. Any other alternative to change the language or could I have a suggestion, I have thought about reinstalling the operating system.
thank you and have a good afternoon

Thank you very much for the post, it is 100% useful. I now have a query, at home I have both my computer with Deepin and my Mac, when I open the same .doc or .docx file on both devices I notice a difference in fonts or scaling (the same calibri font), Deepin being slightly larger , the problem persists even installing the Microsoft fonts detailed in this article. Is there a way to standardize these fonts?

Hello, the only thing I can think of at the moment is that it has a lower screen scaling in Deepin than in Windows. So to compensate in Deepin you have the largest fonts in LibreOffice in Deepin.

Make sure the font size is the same in LibreOffice on both systems.

It is very easy to change the font and the default font size in LibreOffice Writer.
Open LibreOffice Writer:

  1. Go to Tools -> Options.
  2. In the left pane, scroll down to "LibreOffice Writer -> Basic Fonts". Here you can see that the default font is "Liberation Sans", and the font size is 12. ...
  3. Click "OK" to save the changes.
  4. Repeat the same procedure in Windows, make sure both systems are using the same default font in LibreOffice Writer.

The instructions above may be slightly different depending on the version of LibreOffice that you have installed.

Luck.
