@Alex Kemp, it turns out that the LO 5 pathname really is supposed to have the "4"; this was done by design, to avoid migration problems. See my Bugzilla entry 93057 ( https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/s... ) for details. So, we are back to the question of why I am not getting the downloaded help, despite erasing and recreating my profile. If you don't have any other ideas, I will re-open one of the bug reports that deal with this issue. Thanks!

2015-08-01 09:34:25 +0100 질문에 답변하였습니다 How do I open hyperlinks in background?

I am already seeing the behavior you desire, with (pre-release) LO 5.0.0 RC4, and Google Chrome under Windows 7, as follows:

  • Start Calc, with a new document.
  • Use Insert|Hyperlink to put URLs into some cells.
  • Control-click one of those hyperlinks. The Google Chrome icon in my tray starts flashing, but my Calc window remains in focus.
  • Control-click the rest of the hyperlinks.
  • Switch to Chrome. A new tab was opened for each hyperlink that I clicked.

Please describe your configuration (LibreOffice version and web browser), what you are doing, and what behavior you see.

(continued) ...@Alex Kemp: on the assumption that this is a LO 5.0.0.4 bug, I will mark the question as answered, but please feel free to append your answer with anything else that you think might be helpful. Thanks!

@Alex Kemp, thanks for the suggestion. The profile name suggested by the Wiki article you pointed me to is: C:\Users\<user name="">\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\3\user. I assume the "3" is because the documentation was for LO 3.x. In my case, I found ...\LibreOffice\4\user, but no ...\LibreOffice\5 folder, as I would expect for LO 5. I did rename my ...\4\user folder, but it did not fix the problem. I will search Bugzilla and maybe open a new bug. (continued on next comment)

@Lupp, great suggestion, and easy to check. It turns out that I do have the same languages (en-us) for both. Thanks.

2015-08-01 00:39:11 +0100 질문에 답변하였습니다 How do I fix this?

This is probably not a LibreOffice problem. Do you get it when you use the Print command in other programs? You can probably get support for this at the HP support forums: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Ink-Tone... . Good luck!

I installed LO 5.0.0 RC 4, and subsequently installed the help pack. But when I invoke F1 Help or use the LO Help (lifesaver) icon in the Draw application, I still get online wiki help pages. Do I need to do something else to enable the help that I installed?

2015-07-31 19:55:25 +0100 질문에 답변하였습니다 Should I wait

I am reasonably happy with LO 5.0.0 RC4. Some considerations:

  • 64-bit support: I prefer not to have to install a separate 32-bit version of Java Runtime Edition. Yes, it is possible to have 32-bit and 64-bit JRE on the same system, but I had a visceral reaction to the LO 4.x "Selected JRE is defective" error message.
  • All of the bugs and quirky behaviors that I have found in LO 5 also exist in the earlier versions.

Frankly, given the quirkiness of all versions of LO and OpenOffice, I would be hesitant to recommend them to less computer-literate users as an alternative to MS Office. MS Office is, IMO, more user-friendly and much better documented. And if any of your office documents include Visual Basic, you will need to convert that code. For my part, I decided to make the jump for portability (I am migrating some of my computing from Windows to Linux), to save money, and to develop my professional skills.

Your willingness and ability to ask intelligent questions here suggest to me that you might not need the better support and documentation of MS Office and could be happy with LO 5. Go for it!

Beginning with LO 5.0.0, release candidate 4, there is a 64-bit version. I have installed it and am using it 64-bit JRE without problems. Thanks.

Alex, thanks for your reply. I've now downloaded both 32- and 64-bit JRE and specifying the 32-bit version did indeed fix the problem. I'm not sure what you mean about my system reporting to LO that JRE is defective, and I'm perplexed that more people, apparently, haven't encountered the problem or that it hasn't been fixed. Requiring non-geeks to download a second JRE (with the same installed name as the first) and select it in Advanced options seems like a bug, so off to Bugzilla I go. Thanks.

I am a new user, trying to use Base for the first time, and have tried this with LO versions 4.4.4 and 5.0.0, and a freshly installed Java (JRE), version 8.0.510 (64 bit), on a Windows 7 computer:

When I attempt to create a database, I get the message: "LibreOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. The selected JRE is defective. Please select another version or install a new JRE and select it under Tools - Options - LibreOffice - Advanced."

I find a possible hint in http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questio... , in which one responder wrote, "You need to install the 32-bit Java. LO is a 32-bit program on Windows even if your Windows is a 64-bit version." But someone else wrote, "1) Download and install 32-bit JRE (or JDK if you please) if you're using Opera, 32-bit Chrome/Chromium or Firefox... 2) Download and install 64-bit JRE (or JDK if you please) if you're running 64-bit OS."

If current versions of LO really cannot work with 64-bit Java, and that problem cannot be fixed, then the installer should check the Java version and notify the user. But I hesitate to create an item in Bugzilla until I know whether this might be some unrelated problem with my system. And it seems strange that not very many people seem to have encountered this, given the fact (?) that most Windows computers these days use 64 bits.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
