    Default How to skip the LibreOffice "security" update in Leap 42.3

    One unhappy day I faced with the horrible fact that the LibreOffice in my Leap 42.3 was upgraded to 5.4.5.1 and lost the only acceptable for me icon theme Oxygen. Then I have tried to re-install the Oxygen icon theme in Yast, but it proposed me to downgrade entire LibreOffice to 5.3.5.2, because the only 5.3.5.2 Oxygen icon theme is available. This icon theme is absolutely necessary for me for normal work. The LibreOffice was downgraded successfully, and I marked all LibreOffice packages as unchangeable in Yast, but now the Plasma upgrade widget insistently proposes me two "security" upgrades for LibreOffice - openSUSE-2018-131(1) and openSUSE-2018-162(1), and upgrade widget icon has the red mark inside. How can I make these undesirable updates to disappear and never appear in the Plasma upgrade widget?

    Taboo the update itself (in YaST->Online Update in the *left* list).

    Regarding the icon theme:
    It's just a zip file (containg PNG images). You could just "back it up" and then copy it to the corresponding place (/usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/) manually without installing libreoffice-icon-theme-oxygen.

    According to the openSUSE packages you'd need to "register" it with libreoffice-share-linker too though.
    Judging from the old package you should run this as root (after copying images_oxygen.zip to /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/):
    Code:
    echo /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/images_oxygen.zip > /usr/share/libreoffice/icon-theme-oxygen_list.txt 
    libreoffice-share-linker /usr/share/libreoffice/icon-theme-oxygen_list.txt
    It has been dropped upstream by the LibreOffice developers in 5.4 though because it is outdated and unmaintained, and supposedly incomplete...

    wolfi323, thank you for answer, you are saving me from trouble many times! May be, backing up and restoring Oxygen theme will be better decision than skipping the updates. The only thing which bothers me is the possibility that old icons package will be incomplete for new LibreOffice and it could cause troubles. But when I have installed (on another PC) the LibreOffice 6.0.2 in Neon (from Launchpad ppa), the Oxygen theme was present in it, and it worked good, so may be I will try to take images_oxygen.zip from Neon to Leap.

    Well, I tried exactly what I explained here, and it seems to be fine on a quick look...

    Hm, I somehow doubt that Ubuntu has an updated Oxygen icon theme for LO 6.0.2.
    If they do include it, it must be an older (outdated) version as well.
    Again, it is unmaintained upstream since years, so it has been dropped upstream. (although, it may still be in the download, just not built/installed...)
