Mint 14? MATE or Cinnamon desktop environment? I run Ubuntu 12.04LTS with MATE.

So the desktop-integration now works properly without the extra step.

Yes, the Language Pack before the Help Pack was something that I remember hearing about back in 3.4.x days.

Has anyone installed the RPM version of 4.1.0 and had any problems with the desktop-integration?

Yes, we need to mention the fact that there will not be the extra step to get the desktop menus to be "installed".


Hey there

I'm running the Mate desktop (most Gnome 2.6-like!) on Mint 14 32-bit, and the desktop integration does appear to happen relatively seamlessly. Just an aside, if, like me, one has embedded a launcher for LibO in one's panel, this should be removed and updated via the Add to Panel dialog.

In the docs for *.deb systems, the reference to the second step in the installation process references: "cd desktop-integration" and "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" . These lines just need to be deleted. The rest of the text stands. But, as there are no separate docs for the enclosed installation script, could a section be added here in the readme to document the script?

Sorry, can't help re: RPMs.

I keep the launcher for the main screen and Writer right next to "System" on the top panel. I run 64-bit, but have a few 32-bit systems. I do not use Mint, since for some reason it does not puck up my Canon MX6220 network printer, but will if I plug in the USB cable. But I have been using Ubuntu since at least 9.04.

What I do for installs, is un-archive the folder system to my main folder /timothy. Then rename it to "Lib" so I do not need to type long paths. Then I "cd" to the "DEBS" folder to do the "sudo" install. I do similar things with any help pack or language pack I may want.

The big problem is, I need to uninstall LO 4.0.3 first before I install 4.04. If I do not, then I get menu issues. Why, I do not know. I just get either error messages when installing the desktop-integration file[s] or when I use the menu it opens the previous version. I know I need to uninstall 4.0.4 if I want to install 4.1.0. I do not like to deal with dual installs at all. I had the same error when I tested Mint and went from the installed version to the newest version of the same line.

Yes, I run MATE since I loved the desktop environment of Ubuntu 10.04LTS. That GNOME desktop was what I wanted when I went to 12.04LTS. I tried using Unity on a laptop, but I went to MATE after a few weeks. Did not like Unity at all.

Hopefully, the people who are using RPM will get the desktop-integration working soon. I was told there were several different integration files to choose from depending on the version of Linux and the desktop. That may be wrong but it was what I was told a number of months ago.

Sometimes it would be nice if there was a script to run instead of you doing everything manually. But, that could be a security issue for some. Every printer driver install, except HP, uses one or two .deb files. HP runs an install script that will download and "make" the driver system for your setup, including downloading any needed packages that you may not have already installed on your system. Although it is a little slower, it seem to make the HP driver "system" match your system and not some generic one.

Maybe someone could make a Linux install script to make sure that the needed or optional packages could be installed through a question/answer script. Right now the fact that the Windows 64-bit systems need to have the 32-bit Java installed if you want to use Java for parts of LO, would be a good idea to make an install "script" to install the needed Java package along with LO. It use to be, you had to install Java first or you would get a "freeze" during the install process of LO. Once Java was installed, the LO install would not freeze up.
