Upgraded LibreOffice-3.4.3 Has No Executable

   I've been running Eric's LO-3.3.3 on -13.1/32-bit and saw that the
application has been upgraded to 3.4.3 so I thought it a good idea to build
the new package and replace the older version.

   libreoffice.SlackBuild ran without error and everything looked copesetic:

Verifying package libreoffice-3.4.3_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz.
Installing package libreoffice-3.4.3_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz:

   ...

Executing install script for libreoffice-3.4.3_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz.
Package libreoffice-3.4.3_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz installed.

Package libreoffice-3.3.3-i486-1alien upgraded with new package
/tmp/libreoffice-3.4.3_en_US-i586-1_SBo.tgz.

   But I cannot invoke the application. When I look for where it is to be
found I see only these:

[root <at> salmo /opt/slackbuilds/libreoffice]# find / -name libreoffice
/var/lib/sbopkg/SBo/13.1/office/libreoffice
/opt/slackbuilds/libreoffice
/usr/lib/libreoffice

and the last directory contains only

[rshepard <at> salmo /opt/slackbuilds]$ ls /usr/lib/libreoffice/
share/
[rshepard <at> salmo /opt/slackbuilds]$ ls /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/

Niels,

   Aha! I was not aware of this. And this solves an issue I had with Eric's
previous version: starting it using soffice (which the shell script now
calls using /usr/bin/soffice) brought up a blank page with an illustrated
menu in the center. Now, running /usr/bin/soffice brings up a blank writer
document and my templates are once again visible and can be selected. I'm
happy.

   It does when one understands the differences. :-)

Many thanks for the lesson,

Rich
