Hi all: I like to use the libreoffice 5 and 6 on the same HighSierra MBP.

In general terms, I mount de image disk, copy the executable to the desktop; then rename to LibreOfficeX where X is 5 or 6 according to the version I use. Then I droped it on the Applications Folders.

To download them use waterfox with downloadthemall extension which automatically computes the checksum and verified it.

From version 6.0.X I have the problem when I launch libreoffice6 the O.S says "LibreOffice6" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Don't forget that downloaded dmg is verified and match the posted checksum... my shasum -a 1 soffice says 2abc5a0d0da6621948fd731835b0fbebb781e9b9 soffice

So can anybody confirm if its correct that checksum ? I have downloaded from other mirrors and the same checksums appears at the downloaded dmg file and binary file.

Are you absolutely sure that the last digit of the downloaded dmg is "X"? If no, then are you keeping it in secret on purpose to make it difficult to confirm the checksum for unknown version (having to check all released versions)?

See http://downloadarchive.documentfounda..., where you can find all checksums under Details for each download.

Hello Mike, using your link; I downloaded 6.0.3 and it actually runs fine. Thanks a lot!

Hi Mike; I'm sorry to confuse the whole idea. What I want to explain is that since version 6.0.1 I have this issue.

All downloaded dmg files (four times with different browsers) gave me the correct checksum on the dmg file. But when launch the renamed libreoffice6 app; the OS complaints that is corrupted.

So since dmg file checksum is fine. This lead me to two options: a) my soffice binary file is corrupted (somehow) or b) having both versions installed (version 5 and 6) is messing the OS...

My first try is validated a.

Thank you very much!
