For what it's worth, I downloaded the tarball from Libreoffice, untarred it, did a cd into the directory of RPMS, then ran yum install *.rpm and it worked.

The binaries are in /opt/libreoffice4.0/program and have names like swriter, scalc and so on. I use dwm so don't know if it will show up in a Gnome or other Desktop Environment menu.

I also removed libreoffice3, just for neatness, once I was sure that libreoffice4 worked for me. This also worked (same rpms) on CentOS-6.3.

Or you can install using yum as a root user for selected office applications such as writer alone or calc alone. Using yum install libreoffice-writer or calc

Consider the following commands.

su -c yum group install libreoffice

or

su -c yum install libreoffice*

Above those two command installs everything, which can consumes the disk space.

I'd start trying with the rpms of Libreoffice 4.0 for Fedora 19 (check rpmfind.net).

If this doesn't work, because dependencies missing, I'd download the src.rpm of Libreoffice 4.0 for Fedora 19 and rebuild the package. Google this. It is probable you'd need to install some devel pacakges.

And if this doesn't work, look for the sources from Libreoffice.org

You must be clear that there is no warranty that this will work even if the installation goes ok.

Good luck

LibreOffice is part of the standard offering

From the command line do the following

su -c yum group install libreoffice

or

su -c yum install libreoffice*

You could do it as well via the graphical interface
