Have just downloaded and installed LibreOffice Version: 220.127.116.11 for
Linux Mint 19 ('Tara').
First off, thanks to all of the developers and team of geniuses
this great piece of software together and keep pushing its quality to
ever greater heights. As always, the new install works smoothly,
new interface is looking great.
I did notice that there is no longer an option to enable the
Quick-starter (in fact, there's now no longer any 'memory' menu
under 'options' within which to enable the Quick-starter). I don't
if this is a feature or a bug from a development perspective, but
user perspective, it is a bug: I used to use it all of the time and
found myself missing it immediately.
Is there any likelihood in the future to bring this option back?
there something in one of the config files I might be able to hack
Anyway, thanks again to all involved. Great stuff and as always, I am
very pleased my donations are being put to such a good investment.
Andrew, wouldn't it suffice for your purposes to pin the LibreOffice
icon(s) to the panel on LM (right click the icon desired in the meny
and choose the option «Pin to the panel») ? I'm using the same version
of LMyou do (but LO 18.104.22.168 rather than 22.214.171.124 - still waiting for

the LibO app launcher, so that enables me to launch the whole suite.
What I like(d) about the Quick-starter was being able to right click it
and to select the specific application (e.g., calc, impress, etc.) that
I wanted to use rather than to pin a set of specific app launchers to my
I agree though that that will be an option if the development decision
is to deprecate the use of the Quick-starter, although I hope they
BTW - in using the PPA, when you update, does it automatically remove
the old version of LibO prior to installing the new, and does it install
the three packages in the correct sequence? I guess it does, but I've
always been wary of that so have traditionally always done it manually
via synaptic to remove the previous install and then dpkg -i to install
the new packages.
