Libreoffice from Unstable

If anyone has Libreoffice from unstable on 12.2 can they try something and let me
know what happens to you

Start a new text document
Insert / Object / Chart
Save the document
close LO and reopen the document.

Has the chart gone ?

I’m not installing from “unstable” repos. Like many others, I think.

Am NON-Technical !

Similar problem several years ago, found user installing link to graphic/chart rather than pasting the graphic/chart.

Are you sourcing from the list of currently existing third-party repositories, meaning they are external to openSUSE, their packages NOT supported by openSUSE, their packages may NOT be tested and their repositories may can contain beta versions and other bleeding edge packages ?

( Edited from https://en.opensuse.org/Additional_package_repositories )

Like **Knurpht **for stability self remains for installation and updates within repositories my current versions of openSUSE, same earlier when used SLED.
(Also do clean installs, then copy data back.)

Congratulations to your mass-conversion to openSUSE :slight_smile:

Doesn’t make any difference whether you install from unstable, stable,
12.3 or LO own site; 3.6.3 screws graphs on Calc and that applies to
existing documents as well as new ones. I haven’t yet tried 3.6.4 from
LO.

When opening an existing document containing graphs, all looks well for
a while but as soon as I double-click on the graph - to change ranges,
say - it goes blank. When I open a document not previously opened in
3.6.3, I can change the data and double-click on graphs OK. If I save
it and reopen it, the graphs will vanish after a double-click (or click
and “edit”).

Although I’m running on 12.3 at the moment, the trouble started in 12.2.

Another bugzilla I hadn’t seen before. :wink:

I’ve created one in openSUSE’s as we may be stuck with this version of
LO in 12.3.

12.3 is a pretty long way off so I wouldn’t get too worried. Basically you can’t have a spreadsheet program that won’t do charts ;–)
( not to mention an office suite that generally doesn’t do OLE, since writer also has similar problems ). so I would put money on a
fix before 12.3 - In the meantime for 12.2 the only thing you can do is either stick with the Libreoffice that comes on the install
disk or as we have done downgrade back to that version. Both Stable and Unstable repos and M2 have versions of LO which don’t
work that well. It’s a bit of a poo not to have the latest and greatest but 3.5.4 works much better and if you are going to try milestone
version you are trail blazing … M2 was the first one I actually got it install without it choking to death. I too am really hoping for
a 3.6.something that works but since I am rubbish at programming all I can do, like you, is pace back and forth like an expectant father :slight_smile:

God give me patience … now please
