This OMG! Ubuntu article says delta: Newer Apps, Larger One side-effect of the ‘bundle’ approach is, naturally, a larger initial package size. But Snaps are clever; transactional and delta updates allows devs to only upgrade the parts that need updating, be it a single lib, an app icon, or the entire freaking thing. The documentation on ...

I know you made the changes in Ubuntu, but did you set it in Libre office? Tools, options, language settings, languages. I know it should seem that you should not have to do this, and maybe it is a bug in Libre Office, but I have found a lot of the time that for some reason a lot of open source software has their own setting for things like this.

On further investigation, several hints led me to a proposed solution1: Brother provides a fax modem driver (brfaxmodem-1.1.3-1.i386.deb) which you can download from their support site (link is for MFC9120CN).

Not currently. As snap packages will be containerized in the end, it is unlikely to do in the future -- at least not in this simple a way.

We changed the format of snaps in 16.04, to a newer, more compact and more secure format. We have to add back delta updates in the new format, it will come soon.

Instead of mounting /home/phablet/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine somewhere in home you can also create a softlink to that directory in /home/phablet/Documents cd ~/Documents;ln -s /home/phablet/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine Puritinedocs should do the trick. Edit: Just checked, this works and file permissions are ...

I just saved a test document in LibreOffice to take a look at this. I tried to save it in phablet but via FileManager I found it in /home/phablet/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine I guess I can see the logic of that for security but it isn't great for users in cases like this. I can't see an easy way to break out of the libertine jail and ...
