Would be nice if anyone could post a solution to solve that little problem.
Actually, the final release candidate had it fixed. The units for the ruler could be set in Options & would stick. I thought all was well. But, with the release of 3.3.1, the problem returned. I have not crawled through the bug reports to see if it is back there, but I will.

Bill

My packages for libreoffice-3.3.2 are ready and I am preparing an update of my repository (takes a while on my little server to generate the meta files...)
I hope to have uploaded them later today.

LibreOffice-3.3.2 - Ruler still broken

I installed Erics 3.3.2 packages, but no help with the ruler. Before I started the new installation, I removed ~/.ooo3 & .libreoffice, so that I would start fresh. I also deleted my default template, then started LO, set all options as I wanted them & recreated my default template. Oh well, here's to more digging. I think I'll install Niels Horns packages, just to see if there is any difference.
Regards,
Bill

Well, "my" packages are only simple repackaged RPM binaries from The Document Foundation.

I did some simple tests with Writer and it all seemed to work fine. But I'm much more of a Calc user and do only the very basic stuff with Writer...

If by this you meant interface settings, I encountered the same problem. And the solution is to set the variable OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP to a suitable value when the WM starts. In my case, its OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome since I use GTK (Openbox).

Not the interface settings, but the ruler unit settings and so forth (unless that's what you mean by interface settings).

I'll check out your solution and see if it helps.

In my case it's menu icons, scrollbar... (I set to Tango but it changes to a Qt interface at next run). Set the aforementioned var fixes that.

I'm having a problem understanding what is starting Libre Office when I reboot (it's probably when X starts that it starts too, but I'm downloading something so I can't reboot now to check). When I open a terminal and run ps aux | grep soffice, I get two entries like this:
Code:
user   31005  0.0  0.0  10864  1672 ?        S    02:06   0:00 /bin/sh /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice -nologo -nodefault -nolockcheck -accept=pipe,name=-1470415805;urp;
user   31016  0.0  4.2 506072 81788 ?        Sl   02:06   0:02 /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin -nologo -nodefault -nolockcheck -accept=pipe,name=-1470415805;urp;
Is that necessary to have it functional? I mean, if I run soffice and then quit (alt+q) those processes disappear and I'm still able to use the program. How can I disable it so that it doesn't get started alone?

A patch is here for libxml2 --
http://hg.services.openoffice.org/cw...-symbols.patch

This is necessary for the official LibreOffice build. Any possibility to let it go into slackware-current?

Me too Willysr. I have compiled / built LibreOffice-3.5.2.2 without that patch.
