comment How to install multiple versions of LibreOffice?
@vasa1 :) in fact i do not need a newer version than 3.5, i am just curious if my scrolling problem (considered by a commentator on bugzilla as a vga driver bug, instead of a libreoffice bug, and its absence in 3.5 and before as "pure luck") would go away in a latest version. it is easy to imagine that the amount of effort that i am ready to invest for curiosity is limited. considering mimetypes: i use 3.5 now and will answer soon

comment How to install multiple versions of LibreOffice?
@vasa1 - have added that. virtual box (or wine) is a way of keeping an eye on the latest versions: but you see, i need to use the 3.5 for now, and i am not sure 4.x will behave in normal installation as it might in a virtual box or in wine.

virtual box is not an option. i never used it, and is not simple to me. also, it needs further resources etc, i need a general answer independent of such variables

comment Is LXDE/Lubuntu under active development?
whether LXDE is developed or not is a matter of fact that myself cannot state. please comment on the problem you see with this question if you down-vote it, or else consider voting to close - like this was - instead of down-voting. it is a matter of great importance for ubuntu users whether the desktop environment of one of its 'flavors' is actively developed. only that the best place to discuss may not be here

you should probably say: "that info is not true, because LXDE is very much alive"

@Seth - I do. Even if the answer is 'yes', I would like some details on that.

comment Is Nitroshare transfer limited to a certain file size?
This is indeed a limitation of the current stable version (0.2) - is it possible to know the limitation? i have one 1GB RAM and one 4GB RAM computers and was not able to transfer above 100 MB file

i love your application and am glad to see you on askubuntu! but i have some problems in xfce (although i am not sure this is related to the OS or DE). could you take a look at my question?

comment Romanian special characters: the default (comma, standard) version looks bad in LibreOffice, the cedilla versions are reported as incorrect
i greatly appreciate your answer. i have just installed the dict-ro.1.3 cedilla and now I have solved two problems. First, altough I prefer using LibreOffice in Ubuntu, my documents are often edited in both windows and ubuntu, and having compatibility in spell-checker is important; second, as seen in the images, the cedilla/winkey version of these characters looks better in linux than the comma/omniglot version, which look out of proportion, a problem in itself which is not solvable as far as i understand.
