Many users who migrate from Windows to Linux They are not used to using the free office packages that currently exist, although there are great alternatives to Office This is still used by millions of users. Days ago they wrote to us asking how they could install Office Online on Ubuntu 16.04 so we set out to find the easiest and fastest way to do it.
The following tutorial will allow us to install Office Online in Ubuntu 16.04 and in the derived distros, automatically and with all the necessary dependencies, thanks to an excellent script that contains the necessary routine for Office Online to work perfectly.
Steps to install Office Online on Ubuntu 16.04
The Office Online installation process using this script can be a bit slow, so do not be alarmed if the installation takes a long time.
The first thing we must do is clone the repository script officer
git clone https://github.com/husisusi/officeonlin-install.sh.git
Then we go to the newly cloned directory and execute the .sh as sudo
cd cd officeonlin-install.sh/ sudo sh officeonline-install.sh
Once the script is finished executing, we will be able to enjoy all the apps of the Office Online suite, the process is simple and in case some warnings appear, we can ignore them since they are some packages that can be omitted.
In case we want to administer the service, the author of this script tells us that we can do it using systemd:
systemctl start|stop|restart|status loolwsd.service
So with this simple solution we can use the online Office suite.
