it's a historical problem. LibreOffice is moving towards a more normal installer. Sun wasn't keen
on such gimmicks when developed by the community. Go-oo didn't need a decent installer because it
didn't develop so fast = so it could settle on whichever version was supplied in the OS.
LibreOffice does develop quickly and people do want to keep up so it kinda does need a normal
installer and is developing one.

Have you tried to do that for LO?
How many package files need to be run to install LO on a Linux "box"?
There are 52 .deb files to run/install in the 4.1.2 64-bit Debian
install, plus the help pack, plus the language pack if needed.
Like to do a single click or double-click to install all of those files?
The problem is with the way LO is distributed. I have no idea why they
do it that way. There are other programs available where clicking on
the RPM works fine.
