Hi :)
Errr, the User Profile changed with the 4.0.x.  Under 3.x.x the path was 


under 4.0.x it's changed to 


So if you are upgrading from 3.x.x to 4.0.x then your Extensions, galleries, backups, templates and 
all the rest might not get picked up by the newer version.  Copy&paste or drag&drop are good 
options to fix it!  It's more about the last version the machine had rather than which platform you 
are running it on.  However it's a fairly unusual problem because most of the time the 4.0.x 
install picks up the old stuff for you.  
Regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] 4.0.3 64-bit DEB removed my extensions, but Windows version did 

I installed LO tonight on a third computer, also with Ubuntu 
13.04 and with Unity. No problems there either.

I tend to not run an command on a folder that I am not in.
I learned that in my mainframe days as a safety feature.

So far, I have installed it on Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04 with MATE 
desktop.  I HATE Unity and GNOME 3.x.
Been using Ubuntu since 9.04 or 9.10 for a few months till 10.04 LTS 
came out.  I skipped 11.xx and when to 12.04 and 13.04.

13.04 gave me errors when I tried the desktop-integration install.  
Kept giving me errors stating it was not matching the "core" install.

The only fix I came up with, for it on 13.04 was to remove the current 
version of LO then install the new one over again.

I installed LO on two machines running Ubuntu 13.04 with 
Unity today. I always download LO from the LO site, extract it to the 
desktop, and then run the following commands in the terminal:
1. sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*
2. sudo dpkg -i 
3. sudo dpkg -i 

Everything was fine with both.

I've used this method since Ubuntu 9.04 in the days of OpenOffice, 
and I've never had a problem with anything missing or failing.

Any idea way the 64-bit DEB install in Ubuntu 12.04 would remove 
my added items, but Windows did not?

I do not know if it is a bug, or not.  If other have seen this, 
than it might be.
      It is a little difficult to say since you did not say what 
version of LibreOffice you had installed on the two systems. That 
is likely to be important. Also from where did you download 
LibreOffice 4.0.3?
      I have installed (Debian 64 Bit) that I downloaded 
from the LibreOffice website. I did not notice any problems. But 
this might have been because I already had installed.


Version (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539)

I downloaded it today from the LO site, after it was announced. I 
try not to download RCversions.

I had a different problem with the 13.04 Ubuntu I have on my laptop, 
which is an issue with 13.04 [I think since it effects more than 
LO].  I run Ubuntu with MATE desktop environment.

But on my Ubuntu 12.04 desktop, I had the problem withthe loss of 
the extensions and persona. On 13.04 I did not have that issue, but 
an install problem until I removed all of the LO files with the 
Package Manager.  But it kept the extensions and persona.
