I made a fresh install of Mint 17.1, 64-bit on a Dell Optiplex 745 machine.
Mint comes with LibreOffice 22.214.171.124.
Since there is a newer version (126.96.36.199) available, I downloaded and
However, I now have under (Mint) Menu -> Office TWO Libreoffice items
each (Writer, Calc etc.).
In the newer version I am not able to modify / install an extensions.
I get errors like:
"Error while installing extension Alternative searching. The error
message is: an error occurred during file opening

Is there a trick to do this?
What are the chances this will solve the extension problem?
I am also wondering why the newer version did not replace the older one.
Thomas, my experience with downloading newer versions of LibreOffice on
Linux Mint accords with yours, i e, the new version is installed *alongside*
the older one. The latter is easy to remove, both via Synaptic and from the

of making certain that one always has the latest stable version ; I use it
myself. Why you can't get extensions to work on the new version is,
however, beyond me ; perhaps someone else who frequents our forum knows....
Here it might be worth noting that the latest version of Linux Mint, 17.2
Rafael, has now been released with a mechanism that allows for an upgrade
to be done directly from the Update Manager ; I did this last night and it
took all of 2-3 minutes. The version of LibreOffice that comes with LM 17.2
