As a "first installment"...
- What goes wrong? Clicking on any of the icons for the various parts of LO
  doesn't cause anything to come up. Also, there is no "LibreOffice" icon for
  the complete package, only icons for the various parts...
- Yes, I DID delete LO befor trying to install 4.1 (apt-get purge libreoffice*)
- I know the aspect of the "desktop-integration" subdirectory existing in
  prior versions. What do you mean be "seamless ... installation routine"?
  I ran dpkg -i *deb in all of the three DEBS-directories in the correct sequence
  (but obviously no dpkg -i *deb within a desktop-integration subdirectory because
  it does not exist in LO 4.1). Is there anything in addition that I have to do?
- How do I check the "menu edit" options?
I have reverted back to 3.6.7 now, may uninstall that version completely and
try to install 4.1. But - honestly - it is MUCH to hot here at the moment to
do so and not to prefer going for a glass of beer... (smiley!)

Hello Heinrich

Seems like you have been experiencing difficulty with this version for
quite some time, IIRC?

However, despite your frustration, can you say more precisely is not

Just to review typical sticking points however, although I'm sure you've
gone through these already:

1. Have you deleted your current LibO installation before installing
4.1? If you haven't, this can be done via the synaptic GUI, filtering
installed packages, and selecting appropriate files for complete removal
and then applying.

2. Did you run the latest release candidate, because the new release
build has a seamless desktop-integration installation routine, whereas
previous attempts to install always gave install errors. So if you're
not using the latest, then you may stand a better chance of success.

3. Have you checked your menu edit options? The updater may not have
caught the version changes and therefore did not automatically update
the menu with the correct launchers. You might want to double check that.

4. I found that invoking soffice didn't seem to work, but using this
did: /usr/bin/X11/libreoffice4.1 %u This just may be a local quirk though.

Anyway, please expand on what is not working, and give the email a
meaningful subject line so those who are knowledgeable about the system
are more likely to see your request for help.

Good luck
