I have been trying to summarise the current Personas situation to clarify the
situation in my mind. I am documenting it in case it may be of interest to
any of you. Does it need to be reported as a bug? Is it just a Linux

My environment is UBUNTU 12.04 (x2) and LINUX-MINT MATE 13. I am running
LibO, and now LibO 4.0 and 4.1 run from
Applications/Office Panels and share the same .config files, LibO 3.6 uses 
hand made panel. Only one version is run at a time. All three systems run
home made personas on Firefox, Thunderbird and LibO 4.0 and 4.1

1. LibO 4.0 supported the INSTALLATION and DISPLAY of Personas but no
control over the TEXT or ACCENT colours.

2 LibO 4.1 RC4 supports the DISPLAY of Personas, TEXT colours but not the
INSTALLATION  of Personas nor ACCENT colours.

3. Because the .config files for 4.0 and 4.1 were so different in size, I
decided to recreate the files for 4.1 and then manually add the
/Gallery/Personas folder and modify registrymodifications.xcu file to
restore the settings from 4.0.

4. I now run 4.0 and 4.1 from the same .config files and use the same

5. By using a standard name for the personas I wish to use, I no longer need
to modify the registrymodifications.xcu file.

6. I use GIMP to create a new Personas, FIREFOX PERSONAS PLUS to test the
new Personas without the need to upload the personas to the firefox website.
When happy I copy the new personas and rename it to the LibO Personas
folder, restart LibO and I am away.

7. I can find my way to manage my and my Wife's personas (she is the
artist), but the ordinary user will struggle with the current situation.

Changes to the registrymodifications.xcu file
