With KDE Plasma 5, you can easily share your internet connection from LAN/USB tethering/USB modem as WLAN hotspot to another computers. Plasma Desktop gives a good GUI to set it up quickly without Terminal. You even don't need hostapd to do this. This tutorial is not limited to Ubuntu, so any GNU/Linux distro with Plasma 5 can do it. Here I use my USB tethering as source, a first laptop as hotspot (Neon & Plasma 5.9), and a second laptop as client. If you have similar devices, you can do this at home.

If you want to install the latest LibreOffice 5.3 version, by keeping the old version, installing from official DEBS package is a very good solution (beside Flatpak). It does not delete nor upgrade the preinstalled LibreOffice, so the both versions can run simultaneously. I installed 5.3 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit to write this article. I hope this will help you a lot.

If you heard the terms free software and open source, you will grasp the idea that each of those software provides you the source code. If you are a GNU/Linux user, it's your right to ask where the source code is. But where the source code is, you ask. For popular public free software: the source code is available at each of their particular places on the internet. This article provides links to access the source code of popular free software projects such as GNU OS, Linux, KDE, LibreOffice, GIMP, until Slackware and Ubuntu. If you are new in free software, it is a good chance for you to study how the community works. Enjoy!
