comment Libreoffice calc date format problem
Where's exacty the bug - which behaviour do you expect exactly? As far as i see, the only point is adding AM/PM. I can't reproduce a problem concerning leading zeros - this works fine for me with MM for months, for example.

comment OpenForis Calc / embedded Tomcat won't start
I'll do my best (maybe tomorrow, here's already near midnight...) - btw, regarding the comments - i can only delete my own comments, you should remove your ones if they aren't required any more to understand question and answer.

For full logfile, use something like tinyupload.com and add a link to the uploaded log. Regarding R: see cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu/README and askubuntu.com/questions/506560/how-to-install-package-of-r

Again, just guessing: rjava isn't available. Try sudo apt-get install r-cran-rjava and restart Calc afterwards.

Is R installed? Did you tell the Calc installer to use /usr/lib/R as R installation directory? Maybe again the full log may provide useful information...

After installing chromium, just open the following URL in chromium: localhost:8081/calc - you don't need to uninstall firefox. If it doesn't work, check the calc log (see my answer, i've edited it).

Please check if JavaScript is enabled in your browser. With JavaScript disabled, the first page of Calc displays about 11 buttons without functionality and some horizontal lines. Alternatively, try to access Calc using Google Chrome or Chromium. I assume it isn't a server-side issue any more, but a browser issue.

comment LibreOffice writer: Adding bookmarks
According to the documentation, it should work by inserting index marks: Menu Insert -> Indexes and tables -> Index entry (make sure to select Table of Contents as index type). This way, the index entries will appear in a ToC created inside LO Writer, but not as PDF bookmarks. Maybe this is due to a bug that's more than one year old... :-(

comment Indentation lost in Libreoffice after hitting enter
You're very welcome - it's great to have different approaches to solve the issue, and your solution makes perfect use of the full power of LO Writer's formating capabilities.

comment How to install Open Office alongside Libre Office?
@DeanHowell: You're right - but as far as i see, none of the LibreOffice desktop entries are using the /usr/bin/soffice symlink. The all call libreoffice directly. So i assume LibreOffice will still work as usual even if the symlink to /usr/bin/soffice is "captured" by AOO.

Just follow the installation instructions: openoffice.org/download/common/…

comment Convert PDF or FDF to CSV?
FDF is a good starting point, since it's text-based and has the form data in a clear fieldname/value structure. Using perl, for example, it shouldn't be too difficult to transform this to csv, but this is off-topic here (since it isn't ubuntu-specific).

How should the link look like? A test link or some sort of thumbnail?

comment APACHE OFFICE installation
Hmm - in any case, as Rinzwind already wrote, you shouldn't expect a big performance boost by replacing LO by Apache OpenOffice. You may give it a try, but may DTP software like Scribus may do a better job on a high-res picture-rich document. Another idea may be to toggle displaying the images using a macro and a keyboard shortcut.

comment LibreOffice Writer problem with format
Very unlikely - the document is just one year old, of cource a current LO cersion can work with such a file.
