Enabling new UI of LibreOffice on F19 [CLOSED]

0 votes

I'm having a problem trying to enable the new UI of LibreOffice 4.1, all this in F19+KDE; but for some reason I can't see it in any menu item or any other menu or option; is this because of KDE or is there a dependency I haven't resolve?

Install libreoffice-kde to see if this helps.

There are some changes constantly made to UI in LO but mostly they're visible from developer's perspective. They use more flexible way of placing and re-sizing controls on LO windows. Regular user has to be very inquisitive to see that changes.

I'm investigating IPv6, and wondering how, on Fedora 19, the best way to determine the appropriate DUID (DHCP unique identifier) to be used in the host sections, along with fixed-address statements.
If this is documented, please mention.

I've got a F19 installation that I'd like to turn into a fully encrypted system with LUKS.

There are many howtos on the web for encrypting a partition, but they all show doing it to /home.

the implication is that you need to be logged in as root on the actual system you're modifying, though I don't think that is explicitly stated. That would mean you can't encrypt the root partition itself, since you've got to have an empty partition to work on, then restore its contents from backup.

So, my question(s):
-can you do it while being booted into a recovery environment?
-if not, is there any way to convert the whole thing that I'm not able to figure out on my own (perhaps I'm having a whole series of senior moments) ???
-Or would it simply be best to do a fresh installation?

I installed Fedora 19 on my laptop, and it worked beautifully with the already installed Windows 8. When I upgraded the Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. Now it boots straight to Windows 8.1 and grub does not appear.

I disabled secure boot in the firmware.

I do not even know which version of grub was booting the UEFI system before; it just worked.

Can anyone suggest:

  1. What grub would the Fedora 19 installer have provided to boot it and Windows 8? (grub2, grub-efi,...)
  2. Can anyone point to any documentation on how to fix this?

I am trying to use LibreOffice to compose and print #6 3/4 envelopes.

Insert -> Envelope -> Format tab -> Size #6 3/4 (Personal) Envelope -> Insert

File -> Print preview shows a Size #8 (Monarch) Envelope format, which is the menu selection just above #6 3/4 (Personal) Envelope in the Format tab list.

Is it a bug, if so then is it a known bug? Is there a work-around?
