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!)

Just a heads up - I didn't read the whole thread but I suspect this is the normal lack of desktop integration which others have brought up. This happens because of mixing the TDF package with the distro packages. You must completely purge your system of all libreoffice stuff if you are going from a distro build to a TDF build (the document foundation from If you install TDF package over distro package you hit snags. We are going to update release notes in the future to reflect this but in general I (and many others) recommend not upgrading until your distro packages LibreOffice into their repos OR from official PPA's as many don't now what completely purging means or know how to do it exactly and then run into these kind of problems.
