I'm not familiar with Slackware & Co. but it seems there's a tools similar to apt i.e. slapt-get which can be use from command line:

slapt-get --search package_name
slapt-get --install package_name

Here there is some information:

Otherwise you can download the .deb or .rpm file from LibreOffice website and convert it with deb2tgz or rpm2tgz, and finally use installpkg:

installpkg package.tgz

Or check in there may be Libreoffice.


Or check in there may be Libreoffice.

Indeed, there is.

If all else fails, you can always compile it from sources.
