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

Here is the error I got when I tried to install 4.0.3 on an Ubuntu 13.04 
with MATE de.
I installed the files without errors till I got to the 
desktop-integration part.

Here is the listing from the terminal.


timothy@timothy-Inspiron-1525:~/Lib/DEBS/desktop-integration$ sudo dpkg 
-i *.deb
Selecting previously unselected package libreoffice-debian-menus.
dpkg: regarding libreoffice4.0-debian-menus_4.0.3-3_all.deb containing 
  libreoffice-core conflicts with libreoffice-unbundled
   libreoffice-debian-menus provides libreoffice-unbundled and is to be 

dpkg: error processing libreoffice4.0-debian-menus_4.0.3-3_all.deb 
  conflicting packages - not installing libreoffice-debian-menus
Errors were encountered while processing:


So, to get rid of the issue, I went to the Package Manager and removed 
all of installed LO files.
Then I reinstalled LO 4.0.3 and the menu part.

" libreoffice-core conflicts with libreoffice-unbundled "
seems to tell me that I must uninstall the previous version on 13.04 
before I install the next one.  I got this with installing 4.0.2 as well 
on this system.

This is the second laptop that was upgraded from 12.04 or 12.10 to 
13.04, with this system being a clean install over an upgrade.

YES, it works for you but I am not using Unity.
How many users with MATE are having the same issues?
Do anyone using KDE or the other desktop have any issues.

I know that there has been work done to make the DEB install work 
properly with Unity.
Has there been any work to make sure it works as well with the other 

That might be the issue here.
MATE and Cinnamon are the desktops for people who liked GNOME 2.x 
style of desktop and did not want to switch to Unity, GNOME 3.x, KDE 
or the others.  I hate Unity and GNOME 3.x.  The same reasons I hate 
Win8's desktop.  If you read the articles, you will find many users 
went to Mint Linux and other distros to get away from Unity.  Mint 
having both MATE and Cinnamon desktop versions, got a lot of users 
from Ubuntu.  I stuck with Ubuntu, but chose MATE desktop environment.

it may be a MATE issue, or may not.
So I ask if any MATE or Cinnamon desktop users are having the same

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

I extract them to the /home folder

then I

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.

I just installed 4.0.3 on two systems

The 64-bit DEB install removed my extensions and the persona I 
has setup.
The Windows install did not do this.

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.
