I'm using RHEL. I want to insert an image in gedit, but I'm not able to do so. Also I'm unable to install LibreOffice because they are asking for a subscription. Any alternate to gedit or can we insert image in gedit.

    No, you need Emacs for that... – jasonwryan Jan 2 '14 at 6:01

No gedit is strictly a text editor, and does not provide a method for inserting images or embedding images within its files.

I think you're getting confused on the subscription details. The subscription is probably because you're using RHEL, LibreOffice is a free product, you can download the RPMs directly from the project's website and install them manually.

See this page for the RPMs.

Downloading & Installation

Take a look at the extensive documentation that already exists on the LibreOffice website. It'll take you through the various installation steps.

  • You know that I'm new to linux. Can you provide me installation guide for libreoffice rpm ? – Sabapathy Jan 2 '14 at 5:48
  • The portable one is for Windows. OP will need Wine? – user15760 Jan 2 '14 at 5:58
