Many blogs suggest sudo yum install gnumeric and sudo yum install gnumeric.x86_64, but to me both are giving the following message:

Loaded plugins: security, ulninfo
Setting up Install Process
No package gnumeric available.
Error: Nothing to do

I also tried to download and install gnumeric-1.12.38, goffice-0.10.38, itstool-2.0.4, rarian-0.8.1 but failed as every module has dependencies and those dependencies also have further dependencies.

How can I install these packages?

  • Not sure about Oracle Linux 6, but gnumeric is shipped with the EPEL repository: fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL. Add that repo and install gnumeric with yum. – Thomas Jan 28 at 11:39

@Thomas's comment pointed me in the right direction.

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm 
sudo yum install epel-release
sudo yum install gnumeric

installed the gnumeric.
