Upgraded to LO 5.1.3.2

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Thu Jun 02, 2016 11:01 am

Got "LibreOffice Fresh" directly from the LO site because of a number of problems I was running into with 5.2.1.2 (I think that was it), especially save-as dialog box not recognizing mounted data partition which was a royal PITA. GUI automatic settings seem to be working much better, which is nice since I use this application so much.

Yes, I prefer to install the original.
There is still a hard freeze in Calc when resizing an image,
but the fix is kind of like Hee Haw --"Don't do that!"

I hate that default (not using any mounted fuse filesystems). I believe it also affects our libreoffice 4.3 as shipped. (see this bug report from alpha 4, along with a fix http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtop ... 31#p367631) It also affects samba shares depending on how they are mounted.

The fresh version 5.1.3.x does in fact make the connection OOTB.

yeah, that's what I figured. the ubuntu version does as well. AFAICT, debian messes with the desktop file when they package it for their repos.

Thanks, got it now. Didn't see the deb first time I clicked. ( Have to clean my specs.)

I have version 5.1.2.2 that was preinstalled & have not come across any issues. Everything works & looks just like the 4x I was using.

No, you're doing very well.
LibO page is super dense.
An incredible amount of info piled on top of one another.
