BTW: DEBS are here:

http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/testing/

Download the tar.gz, right click & extract. Go to the DEBS folder and:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb
then go to the desktop-integration folder & do the same (sudo dpkg -i
*.deb). Then update your menus:
$ sudo update-menus
and then Applications|Office|LibreOffice 3.3

It is fast! Note that the install will not interfere with your other OOo
installs (Ubuntu OOo or Standard OpenOffice.org OOo). You can in fact
run LibreOffice in parallel (at the same time) as (U)OOo or (S)OOo.
