    Default Libreoffice 5.2 config directory

    I have been using repository http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/

    I decided to try http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.2/ to check it out on one machine before deploying to more.

    5.1 is using config files in ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/
    5.2 created a config directory ~/.config/libreoffice/4/and consequently my previous configurations (recent files, xslt filters) failed to function.

    Was there a reason to change the config location and could I just link ~/.config/libreoffice/4/ to ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/

    Not all machines are at 13.2, is the config the same on Leap.

    Have you tried simply to copy what was in ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/ into ~/.config/libreoffice/4/ ? Unless the configurations in LO5.2 has changed dramatically, it should work. You shouldn't have to make a symlink.

    I think that this was just the personal preference of whoever built the packages in that repository.

    FYI Using the main openSuSE distribution and update repositories for 11.4, 13.1, 13.2, Leap-42.1, and Tumbleweed the most recent LO versions and their configuration folders are:
    Code:
    11.4   libreoffice-3.5.4.13-103.1  ~/.config/libreoffice/3-suse/
    13.1   libreoffice-4.1.6.2-40.1     ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/
    13.2   libreoffice-5.0.6.3-31.3     ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/
    42.1   libreoffice-5.1.3.2-8.1      ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/
    TW     libreoffice-5.2.1.2-2.1      ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/
    I think that a symbolic link is slightly more preferable, because their is no reason to believe that the next build will not revert to the “suse” appelation.
    ~Thank you for sharing an interesting problem.
