    I cannot really give you an estimate, sorry.
    But it will rather be weeks (or months) than days I'm afraid.

    it "plays nice" with the existing repos version by installing separately into /opt
    It does. You can even install 5.3 and 5.4 in parallel I think.

    it is "pretty" again.
    If you install libreoffice-kde too (and provided that it works), it should be "pretty" again.
    Though that is subjective of course, TBH it doesn't look too bad in your screenshot either IMHO.
    The difference is that it uses GTK3 now and the configured GTK3 theme (i.e. not KDE's Oxygen, which is not available for GTK3) and other settings. This also means that it uses GTK3's file dialogs instead of KDE's, which would probably "annoy" me more personally...

    Oops, i was off testing whilst you were writing. I now note your comments, thanks.

    Looks like then i shall need to utilise your good workaround:

    It's not just the aesthetics though... I really don't like the gtk file picker, and the native LO one is even worse

    If you trust them enough, use wkazubski's repo:
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...SE_Tumbleweed/
    It has precious little else but LibreOffice, and their version are up-to-date. (I had to de-select libusb from the vendor switch, which is very easy.)

    And as there is no repo, it will only show up in YaST after you installed it.

    That contains the same unmodified libreoffice packages, only with the KDE integration enabled also for Tumbleweed. So yes, this would be an option too.
    (actually it should even be enough to only install libreoffice-kde4 from there, as the packages are the very same ones as in Tumbleweed)

    The question is how long they will be able to offer it though. As soon as openSSL 1.1.0 is default in Tumbleweed, they will not be able to build it any more (unless they apply some fix/workaround).

    Heehee, well now that i know the right package name [yes i did simply copy & paste your earlier post's file name in my earlier pic], it does appear now in YaST2:



    ...so it can only have got there as a result of my installation [now also in my "real" TW, no longer only a VM] of the LO tarball version... which no doubt then explains why my tarball version of LO is respecting my Plasma settings "out of the box" without me needing to take any additional action.

    Thank you for pointing out this workaround option.

    So, that's now KeePassXC & LO for which i've had to utilise non-repos solutions to get around recent TW hassles. More than one way to skin a cat, i suppose...

    Footnote.

    Not only has the LO tarball workaround given me back my preferred LO UI [both pretty and functional, compared to the recent deterioration], it's also given me an unexpected bonus gift. The repos' LO, for the past few weeks or longer, has stopped respecting my locale language [English Australia], in that all spellcheck & autocorrect functions had stopped. The only way i'd been able to get those functions working again was to change my default template, & all existing docs [one by one as i needed to use them] from Eng Aust to Eng UK. Now with the tarball, Eng Aust is again fully functional.

    Thanks Wolfi.

    Ah! ... So you did, sorry.

    At least I'm in agreement with you, even if I was unaware of the fact.

    I'll put the pointy hat on and go sit in the corner of the room.

    FYI, the KDE(4) integration should be back in openSUSE with LibreOffice 6.0 (to be released at the end of January, but TW might get the RC already before that AFAIK).
    We patched libqt4 and kdelibs4 to support OpenSSL 1.1.0 meanwhile, so that's no problem anymore.

    Actually, it would be possible to build libreoffice-kde4 again already, but the devel project already has 6.0.0.1, so it's not possible to make changes to the current 5.3.x packages anymore.

    LO6 will also come with proper Qt5 integration, but AFAIK that's still experimental and probably won't work too well in 6.0.

    The current packages in LibreOffice:Factory will install libreoffice-kde4 by default for Plasma5 AFAICS, and I suppose that's how it will be for now, until the Qt5 integration is finished/improved in later versions.
