Hi :)
Which language?  It's possible that non-English(US) languages might
still be being translated.  Even the English (US) one might possibly
not be completely ready yet = which would make it difficult to
translate!  There is a carefully thought out process and series of
freezes for these things to ensure that everything is ready for the
proper release date but i just have no idea about the various teams
schedules for that.  I thought they normally have it ready for the
betas but that wouldn't give them much time to do the work!
Thank you for answering, Tom.

Language Norwegian nynorsk (LANG=nn).
I am translating UI and help files to this language.
Later I'll download the English (original) version to give it a try. Perhaps tomorrow. (There is a life outside LO too).

On the other hand it might be that you just didn't download the 2nd
package?  If you only downloaded the main installer then there should
be a 2nd download to get the help package.  If you are using
non-English (US) then i think you have a 3rd package for the User
As usual I downloaded the installation package (package no 1) using the default settings which placed the program in C:Programfiles (x86) -> LibreOfficeDev 4 folder. Second I installed the help packets nb, nn, and en-US (C:Programfiles (x86) -> LibreOfficeDev 4 -> help). I found no 3rd package. I have not found the language files for UI in the LO folder. It looks like the languages is integrated in some way in all the program files. In other programs they usually are put in a separate share -> language folder or something like that, but not so in LO.

If you did download all the appropriate packages then you might have
installed them in the wrong order.  The main installer should be first
and then the other 2 in any order you like (i think).  With that sort
of thing i lose track of which to do first so i just redo the 1st one
after donig the others and that usually fixes it.

So, if you already have a download of the help package then just reinstall it.
As mentioned above, I think I installed LO correct. I installed the developer version just as previous versions. Normally I am doing my work using LO 4.1. Running 4.2 only for translation works.

As a try I even used the Windows solution for solving all problems: restarting the computer.

Regards from
Tom :)

Libreoffice (beta 1).
When I press F1 or "Help -> Help for LibreOffice" in the menu I get the
online help (, not the inbuilt offline help.
Any way to force the program to open offline help as in LO 4.1 or do I have
to wait untill the next release of 4.2?
I have not the knowledge to built my own version of 4.2.
Running LO 4.2 on Windows 7. LO downloaded from
