Thread: Libreoffice:Factory 5.2 KDE4

    Default Libreoffice:Factory 5.2 KDE4

    I've been using Libreoffice:Factory repo for some time in 13.2, however the most recent update to 5.2.0.0.beta2 has disabled the package libreoffice-kde4 (which tops out at 5.0.6.3 presently.
    Needless to say, I'd forgotten just how jarring the appearance and different file dialogs are when this package isn't doing its thing.

    Any suggestions on either fixing this, or the correct place to request an update?
    I attempted to pull a newer version for the tumbleweed repo at http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...9.2.x86_64.rpm, but while it installs OK it doesn't actually work.

    Thanks!

    It's only missing on 13.2 though, and the reason is this in the spec file:
    Code:
    %if 0%{?is_opensuse}
     %bcond_without kdeintegration
    %else
     %bcond_with kdeintegration
    %endif 
    13.2 didn't have the is_opensuse macro defined yet, this got introduced in Leap 42.1 to differentiate it from SLE.

    You could downgrade to LibreOffice 5.1.3 from the LibreOffice:5.1 repo instead of using the 5.2 beta, that one does have the KDE integration for 13.2 as well.
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/

    Or switch back to version 5.0.6 that has been released as official update for 13.2.

    Other than that, you basically have two options:
    - branch libreoffice on OBS and fix that condition, "%if 0%{?is_opensuse} || %{suse_version} == 1320" should work (and then maybe submit it back)
    - file a bug report at http://bugzilla.opensuse.org/ and hope that the maintainers find the time to fix it

    Thanks for that: Of course the other option is to upgrade to Leap 42.1, but I'm still put off by the regression of no window tabs in plasma 5!
    For now I've gone back to 5.1.3 as suggested -thanks for the help.

    The reply I got from the maintainer:
    The problem was that the kde integration actually deadlocked quite often on 13.2, does it really work for you?
    So far I haven't noticed any problems.
    But can you please test it as well and report back whether there are problems on 13.2 or everything's fine?
    Thanks.

    Packages are available here:
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/
    (this only contains libreoffice itself including libreoffice-kde4, but you still need the normal LibreOffice:Factory repo too for further dependencies)

    If this works, I will resubmit it in a few days...

    If you really want to be bleeding edge with libreoffice, try the 5.2 beta rpms from the libreoffice website. They seem to work on their own, so to speak. You need to set up symlinks in /usr/bin manually.
    I'm using them on tumbleweed and don't have 13.2 so beware, the rpms may have the same problem as the official opensuse release.

    The rpms are actually rc1 now.

    Thanks very much for the followup on this.
    I can confirm that it definitely works for everything that I have noticed:
    • Application style (toolbar/menu colors and styles) matches other applications
    • KDE File Open/Save dialogs (Much more importantly to me)


    So at this point I am running:
    openSUSE 13.2 with KDE4
    LibreOffice:Factory repo
    wolfi323's new Libreoffice:/Factory/openSUSE_132 repo (then Switch System Packages in YAST)

    So problem solved from where I'm sitting which is great.
    For added context (sometimes knowing user motivations is useful), I find LibreOffice Factory very stable while delivering bug fixes and new features, so it's easy and painless to keep up-to-date. The fact that I'm still running 13.2 is mostly because OS upgrade is more downtime and usually work to get more obscure packages going.
    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the feedback, I didn't encounter any issues here as well.

    But just to be clear, the doubts were about freezes/deadlocks, not the functionality.
    Can you confirm that there are no freezes, please?

    If you can, I will submit.

    Hi again.
    Yes I had previously just checked functionality as I replied fairly quickly after switching repos.
    I've now been using for a couple of days (not intensively, but off and on), and no hanging or crashing so far.
    Thanks.

    FYI: libreoffice-kde4 is finally back for 13.2 in LibreOffice:Factory and LibreOffice:5.2 too (including an update to 5.2.0.1 )

    Sorry for the delay.
    I did submit it again weeks ago and it got accepted this time (quite quickly even), but unfortunately at about the same time openCOLLADA was updated (LibreOffice:Factory contains a link from Factory for that because the version in 13.2 is too old) and broke the 13.2 build, so this never reached the repos.

    I managed to find out the reason for the problem yesterday (originally I hoped someone else will, as I didn't have any clue what may have gone wrong), submitted a fix, and it has been successfully built meanwhile.

    Excellent - thanks.
    Will keep me trucking well until I get to the distro update....
