How to install ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors on Manjaro Linux

ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors is a free open-source office suite pack that comprises offline editors for text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. It’s also possible to connect the application to the cloud (ONLYOFFICE, Nextcloud, ownCloud) for online collaboration on docs. The source code of the app is available on GitHub under AGPL v.3.0 license. 

The latest update of ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors brought several enhancements such as:

  • Endnotes to insert references at the end of a section/document.
  • Cross-references to create links to other parts of the document you are working on — charts, tables, bookmarks, etc.
  • Line counting to refer to specific lines.
  • Easier work with chart data, including rearranging data series and categories, swapping rows and columns.
  • New proofing options to edit math autocorrect for equations, define expressions which should be recognized as functions, and decide whether you want to use autocorrect as you type or not.
