Yes, you can. In April 2012.

By the way, sorry for not mentioning the LibreOffice PPA thing. I just
didn't think of it, not sure why…
If it's the same LibreOffice version as the one I suggested, the PPA
is a better choice.

And I also forgot to suggest to first uninstall, sorry
for that too. Mailing lists like this are populated by all kinds of
people. People who want to know things and only asks questions, people
like me who know some stuff, but sometimes not enough, people who
knows almost everything and people somewhere in between… It's
sometimes a tough job for those who asks questions to separate poor
answers from the good ones… I'm sure that most of us try the best we
can, though.

Kind regards
