as the OP of this thread, my real issue was while it was "upgrading" the status text indicated to me that is was going to transfer my user profile info and such. It did not do the proper job if it decided to transfer only the user name and other such data, and not all of the extensions he/she relies on.

I thin someone said that the 3.5.x like uses a different folder for the user data. If so, maybe there is an error in the copying of that info to the new folder before that old folder was erased.

I have not tried this 3.4.6 to 3.5.4 on a Ubuntu system, only a WinXP laptop. There must be a fix to this issue.

Can you imagine what a business type of user has to go through to move 10, 50, 100 machines, using Windows, from 3.4.6 to a 3.5.x version if they have to reinstall ALL of their extensions, along with dealing with the custom install process to not have every single language dictionary possible during install automatically installed?

Hi :)
I thought it was possible to copy user-profiles between different machines?  Even between ones running 
different OSes?  Is it not possible to copy&paste the Extensions folder from the old folder 
position to the new one?  Something like the equivalent of

/Users/<user name>/Library/Application Support/LibreOffice/3/user
/Users/<user name>/Library/Application Support/config/LibreOffice/3/user

Errr, i know you know cp = copy on a Gnu&Linux command-line but i don't know the equivalent in Mac. I would probably do this the click&drag gui way tbh. Can you do soemthing like this on Macs? Do you have old back-ups of your user profile at a point when it was working well? Regards from Tom :)

I just noticed that EVERY extension that I had installed were not
carried over to 3.5.4, even though during the install process the status
wording looked like it was going to.

So, it that an error for 3.4.6 to 3.5.4 or was that a part of the 3.3.x
to 3.4.x upgrading as well?

I have seen this in many of the "upgrade" installations on Mac - each
time I have to either delete my user profile or re-install the
extensions, and I'm getting fed up with it.
