    Thumbs up Re: How To: Update to 'Fresh' LibreOffice after Fedora's packages become 'Still'

    installing the TDP rpms in /opt is a good solution. it brings your choice of LO versions to your choice of Fedora versions, without having to fight with packages that have build errors, and without trying to convince devs that there really is a problem in their packages.

    cheers bob for your comments and the non-GUI removal method. Indeed, the normal language is en_US. Language packs and help translations are only required if you use another language for the desktop environment.

    5.2.1 has been released today

    Re: How To: Update to 'Fresh' LibreOffice after Fedora's packages become 'Still'

    I got these two messages while upgrading to the latest, 6.1.4.2-2, version of Libreoffice from their web site:
    Code:
       8 mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/usr/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache’: Not a directory
       9 mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/usr/share/icons/hicolor/index.theme’: Not a directory
    Any ideas if they are a problem? Those two files have been around in /usr/share/icons/hicolor for quite a while. Libreoffice shouldn't be trying to create folders with the same name.

    I just ignore that error, libreoffice works fine anyway regardless of icon cache being generated or not.

    Yes same here not big deal I think it's sole purpose is for the additional theme settings.
