QT/KDE interface support?

OpenOffice.org article has a section on setting OOo to use a QT/KDE3 and a QT4/KDE4 interface. It also has this other section about KDE4. It has been reported on the OOo article that the KDE3 interface will be re-enabled in LibreOffice 3.3.3. What about QT4/KDE4 support? Can these sections be copied into this article, maybe with an Out of date template at the moment? I don't use KDE, so I cannot test this. -- Kynikos 05:10, 8 April 2011 (EDT)

LibO has native kde4 support and is selfdetecting the environment very well. So I think there's no need to add this here (andyrtr).

Perfect, thanks. -- Kynikos 13:23, 8 April 2011 (EDT)

Document Spacing Difference OO/Libre - Bug Opened

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35803 A bug has been opened with freedesktop.org due to a default spacing difference between LibreOffice and OpenOffice that destroys the ability to re-create documents previously saved with OO while preserving document spacing. (example documents provided in bug report). This effects Libre on Linux as well as Windows (if you run a dual OS shop). Libre somehow has larger font kerning or paragraph leading that causes lines to wrap where they didn't in OO. This results in length documents experiencing page run-ons and destorys automatically generated pagination such as in tables of contents, etc.. This affects people who need to be able to re-create duplicates of original documents such as legal pleading, etc...

Broken Dependency

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/25061 Not sure it's important enough to add it, and if you google the error it pops right up, but if your getting "error while loading shared libraries: libdb-5.2.so No such..." or similar that's what's wrong. --Gestahl 19:19, 10 July 2011 (EDT)

Added under Troubleshooting. -- Kynikos 05:25, 12 July 2011 (EDT)

Single dash deprecated in libreoffice argument

I mean: $libreoffice -writer Warning: -writer is deprecated. Use --writer instead.

Eagle eye, fixed. -- Kynikos 04:22, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
