Trying to install 188.8.131.52 on Linux Mint 18.3 with GB help file. (I prefer local help for when I’m not online - yes there are a few of us that live disconnected at times).
Don’t want to use Flatpak so please, no suggestions in this direction.
I’ve poked and prodded a bit but I’ve reached the point where I don’t know if I missed doing something or whether the installation dependencies are actually wrong. Any pointers gratefully received to get the help file installed properly.
Here’s what I did:
- Uninstalled the distro version of LO and purged config files.
- Downloaded 184.108.40.206 64 bit
- Installed using dpkg
The applications work fine, but the local help shows as not installed within the applications.
However when I go to install the 6.0-en-gb help file I get
rick@tardismint ~/Downloads/LibreOffice_220.127.116.11_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-GB/DEBS $ sudo dpkg -i *.deb(Reading database ... 550476 files and directories currently installed.)

If I try to fix using apt-getThe following packages will be REMOVED libobasis6.0-en-gb-help 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 1 to remove and 26 not to upgrade. 1 not fully installed or removed. After this operation, 25.7 MB disk space will be freed. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
…and while trying to remove some other stuff using autoremove showed:DEBS $ sudo apt-get autoremove Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done You might want to run ‘apt-get -f install’ to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies. libobasis6.0-en-gb-help : Depends: libobasis6.0-en-gb (>= 220.127.116.11) but it is not installable Depends: libobasis6.0-en-gb (<= 18.104.22.168-2) but it is not installable E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.
Which squares with the content of the control file in the help .deb
