Installing LibreOffice on a freshly installed EOS

hello dear all

i just have installed a Thinkad Notebook with a fresh and new version of EOS.
i have had set up the wlan before installing the os. so i guess that the system fetched all the necessary things.

After the installation i checked the option of “software-updates” - nothing left to do - was the comment.

now i want to add the libreeoffice package - if possible with the german language-set.

how to do that!? with which command!?

yay -S libreoffice-fresh-i18n

is this correct - !?

btw: what about the Vivaldi-browser. I could install this via Download or via Commandline !?

which way is appropiate!?

you can type

yay <package name>

This will provide you a list of packages to choose from. Follow the instructions in command line to choose the packages.
replace <package name> with libreoffice or vivaldi

sudo pacman -S libreoffice-fresh-de

EDIT: See better post just below :point_down:

In one go:

sudo pacman -S libreoffice-fresh libreoffice-fresh-de hunspell-de

hunspell-de is the module for German spelling and optional.

To help selecting packages, you can search them by
pacman -Ss one-or-more-words

Install packages:
sudo pacman -Syu names-of-packages

yay has similar options as pacman, but it includes AUR software. So if you are installing/searching only non-AUR packages, it is easier to use pacman.
