This information will be updated when we get more details. In addition, many distributions will package and ship Calligra 2.6 as part of their standard set of applications.
  • In Chakra Linux, Calligra is the default office suite so you don’t have to do anything at all to try out Calligra. Chakra aims to be a showcase Linux for the “Elegance of the Plasma Desktop” and other KDE software.
  • Users of Ubuntu and Kubuntu are urged to try the daily snapshots prepared by Project Neon. Paste the following in a terminal window and you’ll find Calligra installed in /opt:

    && sudo apt-get install project-neon-base \
       project-neon-calligra \
       project-neon-calligra-dbg

    You can run these packages by adding /opt/project-neon/bin to your PATH.

    I’m interested in building on OSX. I’m no developer, but I’m familiar basically with building packages on Linux. If someone guides me through the necessary steps, I’d be happy to build and test and help find issues.

    I want Calligra Office to be skinned or at least have skinnable UI feature, to be better than this:

    That is Kingsoft Office for Linux. Now it can be used in Linux well. You know, we love the cool interface! :D Hope Calligra someday will provide interface better than it.

    Thank you, Calligra Developer!
