I am looking to install in a VM the equivalent of microfoft's pack office

Hello, I discover Qubes OS day after day, and it is becoming more and more exciting. I am looking to install in a vm the equivalent of a Pack office, to be able to use a spreadsheet, a word processor. What do you advise? I want to install only linux solutions. Thank you in advance for your precious help. Kind regards.

You can try LibreOffice.

thanks for your feedback, it’s compatible with Debian, so I’ll test. Thank you for your invaluable help. Kind regards.

Libreoffice is a good choice:

# On debian
sudo apt install -y libreoffice

# On fedora
sudo dnf install -y libreoffice

There is also OnlyOffice, which looks and works more similar to Microsoft office suite, but is not in the package repos. You’ll have to download the .deb/.rpm and install those:

# on debian
wget https://download.onlyoffice.com/install/desktop/editors/linux/onlyoffice-desktopeditors_amd64.deb
sudo apt install -y ./onlyoffice-desktopeditors_amd64.deb

# on fedora
wget https://download.onlyoffice.com/install/desktop/editors/linux/onlyoffice-desktopeditors.x86_64.rpm
sudo dnf install -y ./onlyoffice-desktopeditors.x86_64.rpm

You can of course, also use MS Office on Windows VM. I know that for people that working whole life on MS Office switching to LibreOffice (or previously OpenOffice) can be hard. You can also try installing MS Office on Wine.

Thank you for your valuable help, I will try your solution. Kind regards.
