    Bad LibreOffice 3.6.2 rc update

    The LibreOffice_3.6.2 rc2 update in QQ proposed repos seems to of low quality.

    Two main issues are these:

    1. Regression - menus are gone again when using Gnome-shell DE.

    2. The LibreOffice crashes immediately when any odt file is opened.

    The LibreOffice 3.6.1 rc2 works fine.
    So I downgraded back to it.

    This happened before, and it really becomes ridiculous. When messing with a vital desktop component like LibreOffice, the developers should be much more careful.

    Then it's a good thing you still have a stable 12.04 install.

    Re: Bad LibreOffice 3.6.2 rc update

    My problem is not exactly with the inherent instability of development releases. I have been using development releases of ubuntu since 2005, and encountered many interesting crashes and malfunctions. It is the growing trend within ubuntu that worries me: to concentrate on Canonical's own projects (unity, ubuntu one) to an extent that harms the basic functioning of the system.

    An attempted fix for this has just landed from the intertubez. The menu is back but it goes AWOL again when you open a doc.

    Edit: Maybe it is ok now. Might have been a glitch

    Then that is a sort of topic better written about elsewhere.
