comment LibreOffice Impress, how to scale an image to fit slide
I had failed to notice that you suggested to converting to png as well as scaling it. Changing to png does of course lose the png data Having tried then it messes up the length/width ratio and loses detail in the image as expected. However I now realise that I only see the problem if I insert the image into a completely blank empty slide, if I insert into on of the template slides with title bar and text box then the original image is scaled to fit the box as it should.

comment LibreOffice Impress, how to scale an image to fit slide
Thanks for the suggestion Elder Geek, but the original size of the image (in pixels) is not the problem. The images are large in terms of pixels (2808x4675). The problem seems to be the exif data which has x and y resolutions at 2400 per inch and Impress appears to be interpreting this and scaling the image to the original size (inches) of the image scanned. I could hack the exif data of the files, but I was really looking for a general way of doing this. It seems surprising that there is not a way in Impress of asking for the image to fit the slide. Apparently not.

@Fabby I can't find anywhere a detailed description of the allowed scope of questions here. Can you point to where that is documented please? My question does of course relate to using LibreOffice on Ubuntu (14.10). I note that searching for LibreOffice yields 3715 results.

comment The indicator icon of Copy.com disappeared or the menu is unreadable
@pr.nizar that is interesting, on 32 bit 12.04 I see that both libappindicator1 and libcanberra-gtk-module are installed and that I have a .icons directory. libappindicator1 is a dependent of tomboy apparently. Don't know why libcanbera is installed. I don't remember installing it.

comment The indicator icon of Copy.com disappeared or the menu is unreadable
Firstly I do not understand how some using copy on 14.04 do not suffer from the missing indicator, but just the missing items in the dropdown. If the reason for the missing indicator is that it requires the systray, how is it that I see it ok? Secondly I have just tried the db value change and it has made the indicator disappear completely. What value should I revert it to in order to get the indicator back?

Just a note to say that this does not work for Saucy. The syntax of unity-webapps-runner seems to have changed.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 LTS fails to recognize my laptop as laptop
You could try running with the live CD. If that is ok then it is likely that a re-install would fix it. Also though that would imply that it would be possible to fix by changing some config file somewhere, if only you knew which one.
