I have LibreOffice installed as a Flatpak. Everything works fine but when I go to the menu Help -> LibreOffice Help I get the message:

LibreOffice Help Not Installed

How can I install the offline help for the Flatpak LibreOffice?

I managed to download the help package there: http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/6.2.2/deb/x86_64/LibreOffice_6.2.2_Linux_x86-64_deb_helppack_en-US.tar.gz (link found on the LibreOffice download page https://www.libreoffice.org/download).

The help package contains subfolders /opt/libreoffice6.2/help/en-US/ and /opt/libreoffice6.2/help/media/ with *.html help files and some other *.js files.

Is there a way one can use this package to install the offline help for the Flatpak LibreOffice installation?

PS: I'm aware that I need the help version for the corresponding LibreOffice version, and that the help language must match the LibreOffice UI language.

  • Do you mean snap? Flatpak is not available on Ubuntu, but Snap is. – vanadium Apr 1 at 12:24
  • @vanadium No, I mean Flatpak. It is available with Linux Mint. – The Quark Apr 9 at 17:34
