Hi, Alex et al.:  

          I finally installed LibreOffice 4.5, and the Solver worked there.  Thanks so much to all 
who replied to my requests for help on this — especially Alex, who filed several comments on this 
with Bug 80680 (and probably others) relating to this issue.  

          Installing LO 4.5 is not easy, because it’s still in the early stages of development.  I 
finally found in from the LO Dowloands Page -> Download: Development versions -> Nightly Builds:  
Access the Nightly builds server here -> Master -> MacOSX-10.10@61/ -> 2015-02-05 00:36:56 (most 
recent date) -> *_x86-64.dmg.  

          Before installing LO 4.5, I tried,, and, all of which failed 
under OS X 10.10.1.  I started with, because that version worked for me under Windows 7.  
Unfortunately, it didn’t work for me under OS X.  

          Thanks again,

Hi Spencer,

                 1.  How do I find out (and set) which Java version it’s trying to use?  I found 
LO preferences but not a Java tab.  

You wil find it under

Preferences > Advanced

                 2.  How can I get the “Solver for nonlinear programming extension” for OS 
X.10.1, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?  A search for it identified nothing for OS X.  What I 
found for Ubuntu seemed to want to download something else.  I can try the version for Ubuntu 
again, but I’m confused.  

No idea - a quick search on the LibreOffice extensions site didn't bring
up anything relevant.

                 3.  Are there standard instructions for installing multiple versions of LO in 
parallel on OS X?  I’d like to try LO, which worked for this under Windows 7, and maybe 
also 4.3.6 and 4.5, which the bug evaluator said gave different results.   

Please read the whole page here :

At present, this is probably the most current information that I know
of. You will see that my suggestion of simply renaming the

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/LibreOffice

to the same name as the changed app bundle name is said to no longer
work. I must admit to not having investigated this thoroughly, as I only
tend to look at which extensions are / aren't installed, and as most of
these are the same for me whichever version of LibreOffice I'm using, it
doesn't make much of a difference.

Note that the wiki page refers to a path that points to /home/user. Of
course, this is wrong, there is no such folder on OSX.

Try the renaming technique I suggested, and see if it works for you.
