As @Braiam helpfully pointed out - using a different user I didn't have the issue anymore. I digged a little deeper and it seems I had set unity-tweak-tool to use the Dhikr1_cursor for the cursors theme. It came as part of a theme called Sabily which I probably installed along with a bundle of other themes. The part causing the weird behavior is ...

The PPA mentioned by jbuch14 is bleeding edge and not for you if you just want the 4.3 LibreOffice release. For that, use sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-3 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade This leaves you stuck on 4.3 until you decide to switch in a new repo and repeat this process but it will ensure you get all the ...

To get the latest version of LibreOffice (the one not directly located in the Ubuntu Repositories) add the libre ofice PPA. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade This should upgrade you to the latest version of Libre Office available. Do note that the 4.3 package is not YET added to the PPA.

I followed a thread on Ubuntu forums to solve this problem. There seems to be a line missing from this maintenance script file: /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice-base.postrm The missing line, /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/basic/script.xlc needs to be added to the end of the file's second if statement, just above the closing fi, like so: --divert ...

Give Zim a chance! I don't fully know MS One Note but maybe you could try zim. Zim is a graphical text editor used to maintain a collection of wiki pages. Each page can contain links to other pages, simple formatting and images. Pages are stored in a folder structure, like in an outliner, and can have attachments. Creating a new page is as easy as ...

For OneNote, you might have to look outside LibreOffice. There are a few alternatives, and none that I use, so no recommendations. I think each Desktop Environment (GNOME, KDE, etc.) has their own notes app. Tomboy - I think this used to be available by default on Ubuntu. This is the GNOME notes app. Gnote - And I think this replaced Tomboy as the default. ...

Libreoffice does not have an equivalent to Onenote, but nobody says you should use only Libreoffice on your PC. Along with some of the very good alternatives already pointed out by Pedro Sardinha U94410 and muru, you may want to use a program with sync capabilities. In that case you should keep in mind that: Evernote works great for taking notes and ...

This bug has been reported here. In short there is syntax error in /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice-base.postrm script that breaks it. This what I did to fix the issue on my machine - was also suggested by nadrach here. Open that broken script for editing: sudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/info/libreoffice-base.postrm Edit the file: #!/bin/sh set -e if [ "$1" = ...

The preferred way is to use the PPA, as answered by Jbuch14 above. The 4.3 packages aren't there yet, but should be in short order. The maintainer will have probably fixed packaging errors, (if any) and worked out the dependencies, but... If you can't wait, and feel brave and adventurous, remove the 4.2 version, get the debs from ...

That is also the icon I see for .odg files. I think it is the intended default icon. I finally found that one in /usr/share/icons/Humanity/mimes/48/x-office-drawing.svg The one for the draw application is at /usr/share/icons/Humanity/mimes/48/libreoffice-oasis-drawing.svg There are actually a bunch of different size folders (e.g. 32, 48, 128) so I wrote ...

Don't think it is possible, sorry. The only alternative is to open it, then do Ctrl+Shift+S to see where it is saved, then browse to it in Files. Although, this answer may help. It explains how to make a macro on Libre Office.

According to the bug-reporting mechanism here https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81571 this has now been fixed.

Then using LibreOffice Writer (I am using it as an example), go to File --> Printer Settings, select the right printer here, then go to its Properties If you printer supports double side printing, you must find a Duplex ...

Everything is here in official documentation: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibreOffice#Installing_a_newer_version_of_LibreOffice_than_available_via_Ubuntu_repositories I just updated LibreOffice 4.2 to 4.3 myself (Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS), following those instructions. Contrary to a lot of misleading information on the web, it is really totally simple and you do not ...

Gradient stripes determines how many different coloured stripes make up the whole gradient. This is a gradient made in ink scape, then converted to 50 and 25 stripes. You can see the difference in quality of the three. And this is an ink scape gradient then converted to an intermediate colour. What that means is it is the average colour. Believe ...
