    Question LibreOffice settings not migrated from Leap 42.3

    I've noticed that, on this machine which was upgraded from Leap 42.3 to Leap 15.0, the LibreOffice configuration in '~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/' doesn't seem to have been migrated to the Leap 15.0 location '~/.config/libreoffice/4/'.

    Does anyone know if a migration tool is available?

    Have you tried bluntly copying the content from 4-suse to 4 ?

    Maybe I don't understand what your exact issue is.

    Rather than, simply copying the contents of '~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/' to '~/.config/libreoffice/4/', I moved '~/.config/libreoffice/4/' off to another directory and renamed '4-suse' to '4'.
    • That works! -- LibreOffice didn't crash on starting up with the Leap 42.3 configuration data …
    • Thanks; Thank you; and so on …

    But, hello, when an operating system is upgraded, one expects migration routines to be in place …

    Maybe a Release Notes entry is needed to document the need for a sysadmin script to be run on the user's configuration after the systems have been upgraded …

    Probably worth a quick check of any (LibreOffice) Paths that may previously have been explicitly set to "4-suse"

    Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Paths

    No, I hadn't set anything explicitly under Leap 42.3 and, it seems that, the upgrade to Leap 15.0 automagically moved the paths « but not the data » over to "4" -- which is why I noticed the issue -- my LibreOffice user configuration ( name, address and so on … ) disappeared with Leap 15.0 …
