    Default Libre Office lost it's kde integration after 20171022 snapshot?

    Well, I must say libre office looks very "funky" after the 20171022 snapshot.

    What's happened to the kde integration, abandoned perhaps

    - Disable kde4 integration on Tumbleweed as libqt4 is build with
    openssl-1.0 while we need openssl-1.1

    OMZ Paul, you're so right. Ewww...



    Fingers crossed that this gets fixed soon.

    Indeed, thought I'd time travelled and it was running under Windows 95

    Related bug, but not to the look and feel, https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1064660

    Ta for interesting link Paul.

    Wonder if my fingers will be blue with compressive circulation loss from constant crossing, by time of [hoped-for] solution?

    Am continuing to not enjoy this recent loss of LO aesthetics. Tested in KDE Neon & KaOS VMs [both also P5.11.2], & found they suffer the same problem now as well. I really hope the upstream KDE Devs correct this asap.

    The KDE developers are not involved here.

    That's something for the upstream LibreOffice developers to "fix", i.e. they need to port the KDE integration to Qt5/KF5.

    The main reason why libreoffice-kde4 has been dropped in openSUSE is the switch to openSSL 1.1 btw.
    Qt4 (and kdelibs4) do not support it and fail to build, so they explicitly get built with 1.0. But that causes conflicts for LibreOffice, because other things use 1.1.

    I do have patches ready to "port" Qt4 and kdelibs4 to openSSL 1.1 (which would allow to re-enable libreoffice-kde4), but there are some problems to solve still.

    Another option may be to build libreoffice-kde4 separate of LibreOffice itself, I don't know whether that's possible though.

    Thanks for the clarification Wolfi. My mistake in assuming it was KDE's "fault" was my discovery as stated that two other P5-based distros i tested also have now lost the much nicer aesthetics in LO that i used to enjoy. I'm not sure why it did not occur to me to "blame" the other common element, ie, LO itself - ha.

    Your other info gives me mild hope; i shall watch with bated breath...

    Btw, an immediate "workaround" would probably be to download and install the upstream LibreOffice packages from http://www.libreoffice.org/.
    AFAICS, they still offer the KDE integration as well.

    Haven't tested if they work on current Tumbleweed, but I think they should.

    AFAIK you'd have to update them manually though if you want to stay current.

    Hmmm, interesting... To ask you a completely unfair question, would you guess that if i remain with my current repos version i'd "only" have to wait days or weeks for a solution, or more like months+ ? If the latter, then i more or less "have" to try your suggestion [in my "real" TW]. If the former, i'd be comfortable with tolerating the newly poor aesthetics for now, knowing that it'll all be good again "soon".

    In parallel with that unfair question, i have now downloaded the tarball from the LO site, & will install it into one of my TW test VMs [which is currently dup'ing from 20171022 P5.11.0 [ie, with already "broken" LO] to 20171028/29(?) P5.11.2. I'll be keen to see if:
    1. it "plays nice" with the existing repos version by installing separately into /opt
    2. it is "pretty" again.
