4.1.0 is in RC1, which should have a desktop integration package included.

So the attempt to install and run 4.1.0 RC1 should have had the integration included or working.

If it does not, then someone needs to make sure the Debian installs have the desktop integration that works for Unity, and the other common desktop environments.

Hi Everyone,

Libre Office installed perfectly fine on Ubuntu 13.04 with Unity. The desktop integration is included as always.

Several years ago I was going to try a beta of a new version of Libre Office. Betas like 4.1 do not have the desktop integration included. I think it has to do with having two different version on at the same time. I did find instructions on how to make it work, but didn't have time to fiddle. The final release of 4.1 will have the desktop integration included.

Which desktop are you using?
Linux Mint - MATE desktop version
or the
Linux Mint - Cinnamon desktop version?

I run Ubuntu with MATE. So if the Debian install has issues with the desktop integration, Unity or MATE, then this is a big problem for me.

Does the Mac installation candidate have a desktop-integration directory within the main installation directory?

For Debian/ Ubuntu type GNU/Linux systems it does, hence both Heinrich and me could not install 4.1 unfortunately. There also doesn't seem to be any mention of this on the bug-tracker page.

In any event - back to my original two questions ...

Hi also from me,
Same experience here! 4.1-rc1 has no desktop integration. Should not have been made available yet, since one cannot start it at all (at least not
under Linux-Mint-15!).

Hi list

After installing LibO4.0.4 on GNU/Linux Mint 14 two interesting points
that I have noticed:

(1) the update icon still remains in the top right corner of the LibO
window, presumably because
(2) the "About" window displays the installation as Version

Yet, the version I downloaded and installed was

It seems a minor issue really, so I'm just curious about this.

I tried installing LibO4.1 and that turned out to be really bad - no
desktop integration and I had difficulty opening up any of the
components, so that had to get removed PDQ, so hence back to 4.0.4
(which seems to think it is 4.0.3).
