2016-03-26 19:41:06 +0100 commented answer How to install the latest stable LibreOffice with a PPA in Ubuntu without the release candidates?

Thanks for your answer, but:

  • it does not provide the latest stable release (5.1.1 so far)
  • it does provide RCs
  • there is the same issue with the old dangerous java dependencies
  • it does not provide all the libobasis5.x* packages....

Same remarks (except the first bullet) for ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-1

Also, this PPA installs very old java runtime, 7u95, which has many security flaws. The latest java release is 8u77... FYI, "Oracle strongly recommends that all Java SE 8 users upgrade to this release." On my system: javac -version javac 1.8.0_77

Adding ppa:libreoffice/ppa () leads to having release candidates on our system, which are not stable.

I have also noticed some discrepancies between the packages released by this PPA and the official packages available here for download. For example, the latter installs a long list of libobasis5.1* packages which are not available in the PPA.

Also, this PPA installs old java runtime, 7u95, which has many security flaws. The latest java release is 8u77... FYI, "Oracle strongly recommends that all Java SE 8 users upgrade to this release." On my system: javac -version javac 1.8.0_77

Anyone has another suggestion?

2014-09-05 08:59:53 +0100 asked a question [Writer] How to search inside hyperlinks

Hello guys,

I have a very large writer document with many hyperlinks.

How can I search and replace some of them? There does not seem to be an option to display the hyperlinks as text inside the document.

2014-01-31 15:26:16 +0100 asked a question Insert a page or line before a first page table

LibreOffice Writer 4.1.4.2 Windows 7 64 bits

My document starts with a large and long table with noting before it, not even an empty space or line.

I need to insert a table of contents before this table.

  • Insert Line inserts a line in the table.
  • Insert Page does not do anything.

Any suggestion?

Hi everyone,

How is it possible to insert a draw object into writer so that every time the draw object is modified, it gets automatically updated into writer whenever this last document is loaded?

If we can insert a link to a local or online picture and that picture changes afterwards, its appearance within the libreoffice file could be updated. That link should be considered as a field.
