Dist-upgrade to 13.1, Problem: ibus-1.5.4-1.1.x86_64 conflicts with libreoffice-kde4

With the “Current” repos now switched, I get this from “zypper dup -D”:

Problem: ibus-1.5.4-1.1.x86_64 conflicts with libreoffice-kde4 provided by libreoffice-kde4-
 Solution 1: keep obsolete libibus-1_0-0-1.4.2-4.10.1.x86_64
 Solution 2: deinstallation of libreoffice-kde4-

Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c): c

Since I have libreoffice-kde4-, choosing Solution 2 seems ok to arrive at

1406 packages to upgrade, 160 to downgrade, 265 new, 66 to remove, 276  to 
change vendor, 3 to change arch.
Overall download size: 1.27 GiB. After the operation, additional 83.6 MiB will 
be used.

Will post back with the outcome of a plain “zypper dup” (YMMV)…

That’s the old one from 12.3 for libreoffice 3.6. I doubt that will work (13.1 has libreoffice
But the kde4 integration has problems anyway, see here f.e.
So maybe just uninstall libreoffice-kde4? You won’t get KDE file dialogs then, but other than that there should not be much difference.

Personally, I just uninstalled ibus, since I don’t use it anyway. Then there’s no conflict with libreoffice-kde4 either. :wink:

Oh well, later then, the upgrade is already running now (almost retrieved all 1831 packages). It’s tedious enough going through the distro Agreements in Konsole - the bloated Adobe one in particular. T’weed is on my testing partition with btrfs and snapper, so any LO problems won’t affect much here.

Btw. the ibus spec file contains this:

#Fix cursor following problem in KDE4 for libreoffice, libreoffice-kde and libreoffice-kde4 can destroy cursor following, please don't install them with ibus.
Supplements:    packageand(libreoffice:libreoffice-gnome)
Conflicts:      libreoffice-kde
Conflicts:      libreoffice-kde4

So that conflict is on purpose.

Sorry, that was the wrong thread.

I meant this:

Is Packman & current updated to latest 13.1 (safe to TW) yet, & How would I tell?

That’s hard to tell. This morning I ran into problems zypper dup-ing my TW installation, because some packages were not found. So it seems some mirrors were (at least at that point in time) not fully synced. It may be better to wait a little bit.


Yes for the “Current” Update repos. Use the URL’s in the address bar of your browser and browse!

Not sure re Packman. Just duped to 13.1 with no dependency issues nor serious problems so far. Just beginning to test the multimedia apps…

Current is already at 13.1, Packman isn’t yet. Apparently it still takes time to rebuild all the packages (Packman hasn’t that many and powerful build servers like OBS has…). Most of them I have looked at are still in the state “scheduled” or “blocked”.

, & How would I tell?

By looking at the file dates in the repo I suppose… :wink:

Anyway, you could do the upgrade nevertheless.
You may get some conflicts though. If you don’t know how to resolve them, you should better wait.

In the worst case, just some of your multimedia stuff won’t work correctly I guess.

But please note, that you cannot install ibus and libreoffice-kde4 at the same time on 13.1. That conflict is on purpose and will not go away however long you wait. Unless there is an update to ibus and libreoffice-kde4, of course, that resolves this.

Understood, thanks. My boot screen states 13.1 branded logo/image but 12.3 is the selected distro?

Run YaST->System->Boot Loader->Boot Loader Options and change the text (“Distributor”) to whatever you like…

See here:

After zypper dup to 13.1 and on first reboot, the Grub2 menu entries said 12.3 even for the 13.1 kernel. Mine also kept two recent T’weed kernels (signed). The 13.1 kernel is 3.11.6-4 and doesn’t include the additional id in the menu entry, and you may need to select the additional menu to select it (I did).

I updated /boot/grub2/grub.cfg but not restarted yet.

“Current” is not a real directory, it is a link in the server. There is
currently a problem because not all the links have been changed, so be

Uh, which “Current” link hasn’t now been changed?

By posting that now, it seems to suggest that earlier posts stating that those links changed to 13.1 many hours ago, are now somehow unchanged.
