    I can't answer your question but I feel I should mention that I have
    tried out 4.0, both from LO site and an openSUSE factory repo and found
    a bug in Calc. Formatting is faulty and requires you change settings to
    recalculate formulae every time a file is opened. If you like negative
    numbers to be in red, for instance, you'll need to make this change.

    See https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60215

    i can't answer either, but i see here
    https://en.opensuse.org/Features_12.3 where it says the
    next released version of openSUSE will ship with LibreOffice 3.6
    because "Version 4.0 of LibreOffice was considered not yet mature
    enough to be included in openSUSE 12.3"

    so you may wish to reconsider the desire to include 4.0 in your
    project--by the way, you probably should have asked this in the OBS
    Fourm, here http://tinyurl.com/64xoegy and you may get a
    better answer there....why don't you click the triangular "Report
    Post" icon at the bottom of this post and ask a moderator to move
    your thread to the OBS forum.....do NOT post a new question in a new
    thread..

    Actually LO 4.0 is available, but it's in the UNSTABLE repo. "UNSTABLE" says it all.

    UNSTABLE in terms of openSUSE adaption? libreoffice.org ships it as GA, and not as beta...

    I tried both 4.0 beta from LO site (see https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...-2-sumifs.html) and 4.0.something from UNSTABLE. Both work OK, only issue so far I noticed is the missing show-special-characters functions (the PI button, that toggles paragraph returns and such on and off).

    The version from LO site installs in separate, so it can be used in parallel with the repo version.
