    libreoffice 3.6.5

    When will libreoffice 3.6.5 be in the Ubuntu Software Center? Apparently, the new build fixes many bugs.

    Probably not until 13.04.

    I installed directly from the Libre Office download page. It works better than the previous versions, but the Quickstart function is not available.

    Me too. After configuring memory usage of LO it starts fast, really no need for quickstart any more.

    blurr
    I don't have full LO installed. Is there a safe but thorough way to uninstall such LO compnents as my computer has so that I can do a clean install of the new LO?

    Sorry for blurring into support. I'll post into a support forum.

    What specifically did you configure? I'd like to try whatever you did.

    Yes. Uninstall every package that begins with libreoffice.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove 'libreoffice*'

    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove libreoffice*
    To make sure nothing is left you can check synaptic.

    We posted at the same time (almost)! I didn't realise that autoremove could take a parameter.

    You probably know this already. See the screenshot.

    Edited: Hmmm...I used to put "number of objects" to be 20. Don't know when did it become 590. But doesn't seem to make a difference.

    Re: libreoffice 3.6.5

    I am using 13.04 right now and it has Libreoffice 3.6.2. So, libreoffice 3.6.5 is not yet in the Raring Ringtail repositories.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    LO's ppa has 3.6.4 rc1 for Precise and 3.6.4 for Quantal. It will probably be updated to 3.6.5.
