    Hi all

    Have just downloaded and installed LibreOffice Version: for
    Linux Mint 19 ('Tara').

    First off, thanks to all of the developers and team of geniuses
    who put
    this great piece of software together and keep pushing its quality to
    ever greater heights. As always, the new install works smoothly,
    and the
    new interface is looking great.

    I did notice that there is no longer an option to enable the
    Quick-starter (in fact, there's now no longer any 'memory' menu
    under 'options' within which to enable the Quick-starter). I don't
    if this is a feature or a bug from a development perspective, but
    from a
    user perspective, it is a bug: I used to use it all of the time and
    found myself missing it immediately.

    Is there any likelihood in the future to bring this option back?
    Or, is
    there something in one of the config files I might be able to hack
    as a
    work around?

    Anyway, thanks again to all involved. Great stuff and as always, I am
    very pleased my donations are being put to such a good investment.

    Best wishes


Andrew, wouldn't it suffice for your purposes to pin the LibreOffice icon(s) to the panel on LM (right click the icon desired in the meny and choose the option «Pin to the panel») ? I'm using the same version of LMyou do (but LO rather than - still waiting for the pre-release PPA to kick in) and it works very well for me....


Hi Henri

Thanks for the reply.

I have a series of 'drawers' in a side panel, into which I have pinned the LibO app launcher, so that enables me to launch the whole suite. What I like(d) about the Quick-starter was being able to right click it and to select the specific application (e.g., calc, impress, etc.) that I wanted to use rather than to pin a set of specific app launchers to my panel.

I agree though that that will be an option if the development decision is to deprecate the use of the Quick-starter, although I hope they don't! :-)

BTW - in using the PPA, when you update, does it automatically remove the old version of LibO prior to installing the new, and does it install the three packages in the correct sequence? I guess it does, but I've always been wary of that so have traditionally always done it manually via synaptic to remove the previous install and then dpkg -i to install the new packages.

Thanks again
