I run 3.4.6 on 64-bit Ubuntu.

In the first version of LO, I had to install en-GB language packs and help packs to get en-US help packs to install without errors.

It has been since 3.4.1 that I have not installed en-GB along with en-US every time I updated LO. I just got into a habit in doing it.

As for 3.4.6 vs. 3.5.x, well I will not go to 3.5.x till some of the bugs in the "bug lists" are fixed. Some of them are real show-stoppers for me.

If you need LO to work 99% of the time for what you want to do, stick with 3.4.6, since it is the most stable version. If you do not need to import Visio files, 3.4.6 will be fine. If you do need to read them, I thing you should try "Dia" for reading those files and then exporting them to something Draw 3.4.6 can do. There is just too much in 3.5.x that is an issue for my work, to deal with it right now. There are always work-a-rounds. When the bugs are fixed, I will then go to 3.5.x.

Right now, I need the stable version and not be one of the testers for the newest versions. Eight months ago, it would have been different. I did not have so much back log of work/typing/etc. that needs LO to work 99.9% of the time, back then. Now I do. I am doing as much as I can with the limited amount of "desk time" I have with my pain levels getting in the way. So I do not want to be a tester right now.

You might have already tried this but it looks like you didn't
mention it.  Can you download the TDF's official version instead of
using one from the repos?

I have tried it now, and it works! Thank you very much. It messed with
my desktop integration a little and put the configuration files in a
different place, but when I'd worked that out it all looked good.

I didn't bother with the parallel installation though, actually didn't notice that you'd shown me that link until it was too late. I guess I can go back to the debian distro when they get 3.4.6?

Annoyingly the main downloads page tries to give me the .Rpm instead
of the .Deb but also it lets you choose the more stable 3.4.6 instead
of the 3.5.2.

It worked for me, ie offered me the .deb installation.
