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 solution is using odt2txt. Now, this command is provided by two different packages, namely one called odt2txt that you can install with sudo apt-get install odt2txt and by the package unoconv (that offers also command-line conversions between more libreoffice formats), that is installed by sudo apt-get install unoconv If you have the two, you can ...

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 ...

Yes, we can use the UCanAccess JDBC driver to connect to Access databases (.mdb and .accdb) in LibreOffice Base. Here's how I did it on a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. First, I installed LibreOffice Base itself sudo apt-get install libreoffice-base Then I downloaded UCanAccess to my Downloads folder and unzipped it. I launched LibreOffice (not ...

If you're looking for setting security within the PDF itself, LibreOffice can do so. Use the Export as PDF option from the File menu. The resulting dialog has a tab named 'Security`: For command line conversion, the man page suggest that convert can use the options set in the Writer's Export as PDF dialog. So I suppose you could set it once in an instance ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 Sardinha 94410 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 syncing ...

It depends on how you installed the font. Font installed system-wide If it was installed system-wide (like most fonts are AFAIK) just pull Nautilus (Ubuntu's file manager) as root (Alt+F2 then enter gksudo nautilus) and navigate to /usr/share/fonts/truetype. then then Delete the file and then run sudo fc-cache -f -v in Terminal. Log out and back ...

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. ...

This a way you can hide and then remove duplicate rows (or 'records') in Libreoffice Calc Go to the worksheet that has the duplicate entries, and select 'Data' > 'Filter' > 'Standard Filter' (it seems to automatically select the data in the sheet that it will filter, you may want to do this manually beforehand). Then in the box that pops up, select the ...

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 ...

I would suggest Libreoffice draw not writer as it is better with shapes, but anyway: First click View -> Toolbars -> Drawing. Then click on the flowcharts button, on the drawing tool bar. (For ease of use, drag the 3 lines at the bottom to make it into a permanent window. Hovering over each item will show you what it does. Click on one, and ...

Solution using a yad script Overview Unfortunately there's no existing GUI option that would be able to search through LibreOffice documents without creating an index first (e.g. Recoll, Tracker).

apt-get wants to upgrade some packages at the same time as you want to remove libreoffice-draw. Of course this requires downloading new packages: 8 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 4 to remove and 33 not upgraded. Need to get 27.9 MB/64.3 MB of archives. At the same time, the operation frees some space overall: After this operation, 15.6 MB disk ...

Instead of putting the XML code in /etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf (which actually just includes files from $HOME/.config/fontconfig/conf.d or $HOME/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf) put the XML code in a file under the two mentioned directories in your $HOME/.config/fontconfig/ directory. Don't mess with the system configuration files as this will make system ...

If you installed the font using the install button, it was likely just copied to ~/.fonts. To uninstall it, just open that directory, find the font, and delete the file.
