Hi Joe,

My guess is that you installed LibreOffice from an Ubuntu
repository, rather than the original libreoffice download site.
/tmp is a particularly stupid location - the clue is in the name.
It's temporary.
I downloaded the help file from Joe

Hope not only the help file but both: The whole LO from
and not a part form Ubuntu and another part of

So please have a look at file:///opt/libreoffice7.3/help ist there exist
any help. Then only the link is wrong. And the link will be set from the
main program.

Just wondering. I'm using Fedora and it has the has as the default Libreoffice.
I've also installed and on the system, and
can run whichever one I want from Application Office

This is one issue I have.  For each version I download the
version of the RPMs, and also download the local help
RPM as well. Extract the files, and then copy the help
RPM files to same location as the other rpms, and then
install. This puts the help files in the correct location.

Have a little script I use to automate process and create a
file I can copy to other systems to install.

newlib=$(ls -1 LibreOffice_$1*.gz |tail -n 1 | cut -f1,2 -d_)
mkdir $newlib
cd $newlib/
for a in ../$newlib*.gz ; do tar xvf $a ; done
for a in $(find . | grep "\.rpm") ; do mv $a .; done
rpm -Uvh *.rpm
tar -Jcvf ../$newlib.xz *.rpm
rm l*.rpm -f
rm LibreOffice_$1* -R -f
cd ..
rmdir $newlib

      Just to jump in late in this discussion, here is the script that I use to install help:
cd ~/Downloads/LO/LibreOffice_7.3.1.3_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-US/DEBS/
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Note that at this stage, I have unzipped the zipped file in the folder  ~/Downloads/LO/. 
You would have to change the address to the folder containing the helppack zipped file. Then use 
the terminal to run this two line command.

     I have a feeling that when you used dpkg to install the program that you may not have used it to then install help. I have a scrip that does both. Again, the location of the LibreOffice files has to be changed. The script then needs to be made executiable.

cd ~/Downloads/LO/LibreOffice_7.3.1.3_Linux_x86-64_deb/DEBS/
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
cd ~/Downloads/LO/LibreOffice_7.3.1.3_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-US/DEBS/
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
