No need to reboot.
You can just logout and login back again. Or just source the file:
Code:
source ~/.bash_profile

I will test LO 6.2.0 for a couple of days on my test box just to see whether I'm affected by any bugs. Over the years I've had a particular interest in about 20 bug reports.

Some of the bugs, especially with mail merge, have caused me to fall considerably behind even the Still version.

I tend to use the SlackBuilds rpm version and use the Still version, from LO, until such time as Current has some of the major bugs fixed.

I can never understand why SlackBuilds and AlienBob always leap so quickly to the Current Version and leave us who need LO in a corporate environment to do our own thing.

I only have one bug report outstanding which should have been fixed in 6.2.0. I've already tested it after compiling it from my git clone.

For Slackware-current I usually compile the latest LibreOffice, but I did not have time last week to tackle 6.2.0 just after I had built 6.1.4. For Slackware 14.2 I try to stick with the older releases, but not always,

I think where I went wrong was I had multiple tabs open in "konsole". The export command may not xfer between tabs much like the source command for multiple tabs. When I did the export command in the tab that I was running Libre and sourced the .bash_profile there too it worked.

I'm using LibreOffice mostly to create presentation, and few other documents and it works very well. Thanks a lot to Eric for the Slackware packages!

For anyone who needs to create network diagrams I would recommend the VTS Network Equipment extension; you will probably find an icon for any kind of device that you may have on your network.

My one remaining bug has been fixed in 6.2.0 and with my limited testing it appeared to be good.

However I've just seen a new bug, in Calc, that effects time in that it appears that if you go over a certain threshold using a certain format codes Calc looses a minute.

So depending on your usage this version 6.2.0 might not be for you. I think problems with time in Calc is a major bug.

One bug that I submitted years ago to Openoffice was to add the ability to have split window for documents, like in many editors. A lot of of other persons requested that feature as well but still not added. Seems strange not to have it after so many years.

One thing I've noticed on the taskbar when running LO 6.2.0 was that the icon has changed from the calc/writer icon to what looks like a generic "X in an O". See attachment.

I can only put this down to LO dropping kde4 integration with 6.2.0.

Not sure what problems this will cause in the future, other than LO having a different feel.

I've been using LibreOffice since it forked from OpenOffice. I really like it and it works well. I use LibreOffice Calc and Writer most often with Calc being my number one use. I using it for accounting with a small non-profit. No real issues to speak off. Quite happy with LibreOffice.
