About Canonical Snap packages and LibreOffice distribution


Hi, I know it's too early but one of the direct consequences of the
sandboxed application package is the possibility for developers to
maintain an application more updated, independent of the distribution,
making it easy to add security updates, new features and bugs fixes
(...)

Canonical Snap packages arrived between polemics (for me a bad decision
to release a nonfunctional feature to 100% due to lack of another
development <MIR>, in a LTS version knowing beforehand design problems
in X11), but the reality is that it offers a good chance to distribute
LibreOffice in Ubuntu and other distributions that want to adopt Snap.

I've seen some documentation about the interest of some LO developers
with xdg-app (my hope for the future of linux desktop) but what is the
position of LO developers about Snap? Is there interest in distributing
LibreOffice as a Snap package? If so they will wait distribute it along
with the availability of MIR?

Thank you very much.

OOXML ECMA-376, transitionnal and strict

Hello, 

I'm a french user willing to get some answers about OOXML format. 
This post is already released on the fr.discuss mailing list. 

As you may know, something changing the game just happened in France. 
The second version of the Interoperability General Refenrential was just released. 
It demands all the public administrations (by law) to conform to certain file formats when the exchanged
from administration to administration or from a citizen to an administration and vice et versa. 

ODF is recommended. 

OOXML strict is tolerated in some case. 
OOXML transitionnal is not. 
Binary older file formats are not either. 

Thus, it becomes very interresting to investigate what's behind OOXML. 

in this article : 
https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/community/osor/case/complex-singularity-versus-openness 

3 different OOXML formats are described : 
"There is the ECMA version (that’s the one MS Office 2007 writes, which was certified by ECMA
International). Then there is OOXML Transitional, which is relatively close to the ECMA version, and is
the format that all later versions to date write as default. Finally, there is OOXML Strict." 

In this MS$ tab :

https://blogs.office.com/2012/08/13/new-file-format-options-in-the-new-office/#DR3YrKG0ymm0vmwB.97 
Only two OOXML formats are described : transitionnal and strict

Java still broke on LibreOffice 5.1.1

LibreOffice 5.1.1 on Macs still doesn't recognize Java Runtime Environment (JRE 1.8.0_73 & OS X 
ver.10.11.3)

You need to fix this bug. Can't use database without JRE.

Installing on Mac OS X

This has still not been fixed.

Once again I can't open LibreOffice after upgrading to LibreOffice_5.1.1_MacOS_x86-64 and 
LibreOffice_5.1.1_MacOS_x86-64_langpack_en-GB on my Mac (OS X ver. 10.11.3 El Capitan)
Get the following message:

    “LibreOffice.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

I have to go to my security settings to allow apps downloaded from anywhere. Can't right 
click/open to bypass setting like other applications.

You need to fix your signing certificates so they are valid when an additional language pack is 
installed.

New Icons in 5.1.1.2

Hi all,
I'm not a big fan of the new icons in the toolbars for 5.1.1.2. Is there a
way to keep the old ones?

There was a bunch more which got fixed earlier in 5.0.4 and 5.1.0

Thanks to the researchers working with VeriSign iDefense Labs for

WRITER: Replace Links ?

Can LibreOffice do the following:

1.) Create a style for the word 'help' in helvetica-14pt-roman.
2.) Create a hyperlink to a help document, for the word "help
3.) Search for the word "help", and display a list of where the word 'help'
appears in a long document (400 pages).
4.) Replace all the instances of the word "help" created in steps 1 and 2.

I am new to the platform, so could you please answer in step by step
procedure as in 'how' would I do that ?

Thank YOU ahead of time!

Miles.

Re: Re: Is the "Office Open XML" option strict?

Yes, LibreOffice targets Strict in addition to Transitional (because Strict does not exist, as the
process to save Strict with MS Office  is not limited to choosing Strict but also to the user behaviour, in a
way that makes Strict almost impossible to obtain).

MS Office will create a Strict file only if the user saves the Document as Strict before doing ANY other thing
(for instance, adding a single letter or a simple space), as otherwise MS Office creates a Transitional file.

In addition, MS Office opens Strict files as Transitional (the default format), so that the user must save
it as Strict each time. If someone hits Ctrl-S, the file becomes Transitional and will NEVER revert to Strict.

You can try yourself. This is why I am repeating that a Strict file does not exist (by the way, Office for Mac
does not support Strict, so if you have a single Mac user, Strict is gone). I have made several tests, and
Strict is close to impossible to obtain when exchanging files.

I hope this explains the situation.

LibreOffice PPA

Dear all,

Would like to ask about up-to-date LibreOffice PPA - would be there any?
Even Y-PPA could not find any.

The https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/ppa seems to be 
outdated.

Is there any TDF official LibreOffice PPA planned?

Best Regards,
Edmund
