Hi :)
I think that was all the start of the Ubuntu split away from using Gnome?

I think 1 big advantage that Unity started with was that it had figured out touch-screen right from 
the start and had it all built-in.  Gnome were still refusing to start thinking about touch-screen. 
 So even tho Ubuntu's usage of Unity was a Pita it was clearly going somewhere with handhelds, and 
tablets and all that whereas Gnome was diving into a hole by limiting itself to desktops, in an era 
where we keep being told that it's the end of the desktop.  (Not that i believe the hype because 
like all such statements it's a blatant exaggeration).  A few releases on and Unity seems quite 
usable, i even prefer it to Gnome-alikes now.  
Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] ZOOM: strange or bug??

I was wondering if you could try and download and install the latest 3.5.6 version for RPM[?] on 
one of your computers.

I have seen a few questions about the repository version from Opensuse 12.2.

Can you tell the "list" if these issues started with Opensuse 12.2 or was it there with the 
previous version[s] of that OS?

Here is the direct link to the 64-bit RPM version download page.

I know that there are a lot of work, in the past, to get touch screen technology to work properly. 
I remember seeing work being done when Ubuntu 11.x came out to get Unity and touch screens to 
work with LO properly.  Hopefully we have enough developers to work on "touch" on all OSs.

To be honest with you, I never install the repository versions of LO.  I run both Ubuntu 
10.04/GNOME [32-bit and 64-bit] and 12.04/MATE [64-bit].  I did not wait for the repositories to 
have the new versions of LO available in their repositories.  I prefer to get it from the LO 
download pages.  I run 3.5.6 on all my active Windows and Ubuntu systems, and update my stored 
[think of backup or spare systems] to the latest one I use every few months.

I do not know why I do this, except I remember when I installed LO from the repository in its 
early days, the splash screen was different than the LO download page version.  So I started to 
wonder if there was any other differences.  So, I just stuck with the LO download page[s] 
version[s].  It works for me.  Others may prefer to deal with the "one button" upgrading that the 
repository update/upgrade system can do to ease the process.  Being that I now run an older 
version of Ubuntu [10.04], on my default desktop, that does not get many "back-ported" packages, I 
tend to look at things a little differently than someone that keeps their system's OS up-to-date 
with the latest version of the OS of their choice.
