This is more of an informational statement rather than a question. It is written to guide others and to also perhaps bring attention to an issue that some users are faced with.
On ArchLinux the decision makers opted to not provide a package for the ReportBuilder. A bug report for this change can be found here: FS#57765 - [libreoffice-still] Oracle Report Builder is missing
- A claim is that no one uses it so not
providing the package should be of no
- Another claim is that if you really
need it then you should use the
upstream binary, such as the AppImage
provided at libreoffice.org.
- A finall reason given was that the
ReportBuilder had a convulted
For me as a user I see a need for having the ReportBuilder. I actually need this feature. For me using the AppImage binary has been the solution, for now.

As Ratslinger, mentioned in a comment, not all distibrutions of Linux include Base and or the ReportBuilder. What distro do you use and do they include either of the two? Leave a comment and let us know.
