I do not know if I will be using the PPA for the 4.0.6 install, but it
will be a while before I use 4.1.x.

FOR install commands I now use. . . .

     "sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*"
     . . . . then do the standard "dpkg -i *.deb" terminal install.

I found that there was a show-stopper for the font selection, for 4.1.2,
that caused the drop box to go back to the top while I was trying to
scroll down the list to change the font of a few cells in a Calc file. 
I had tried it every way I knew how and it just kept going back to the
top of the list instead of continuing to scroll down.  I could not even
get past Arial on the list before the jump back to the top.  For me,
that is a show-stopper, even if I do not use Calc often.

I really hate it when there is a problem with the font scrolling, or
viewing.  I have over 600 fonts in my font folder on my desktop and
somewhere about 400 on my laptop's font folder[s].  Since I use a lot of
specialty fonts for the holidays [like letters made out of bones or
letters in Christmas trees, and such] I really tend to build up the
number of specialty fonts during the holliday seasons. 

This is the second or third time a version has had this font drop box
scrolling problem or being able to display all of the fonts installed.

Hi :)
Sorry all!  I just googled for the PPA and found this page

Apparently each different branch of LO has it's own page and the above
page has a link to each of those.  So you can choose to have a really
old branch using that way if you want.  They do list links to the
4.1.x and 4.0.x branches even though they are not quite legacy yet!

So the PPA has the newest version of both branches.

Does that mean that the newest that will be updated to right now will be
4.1.2, but in a few weeks the update manager will see that 4.0.6 is the
newest and try to update your 4.1.2 back to that one?

No, it's just 1 PPA.  If you want an older version then you kinda have
to go back to the LO site.  The PPA only has the most recent version
although i think that might be the latest from each of the 2 current
