Can't find or download Debs for LO 4.0.1

Asked by David on 2013-03-10

I can't seem to find a ppa to download the LO 4.0.1.

I was able to find source here, I downloaded and made the debs myself on my computer. It took aboiut 14 hours to it compile and make the debs.

There where a few issues, and there where a few issues with the install, particularly with python-uno. I think it might have some sort of circular reference.

I had to manually remove the LO 4 beta2, before I could get this one to install without errors.

I'd like to help with some testing if I could, I don't know really where to go.

I did a do-release-upgrade -d

Had some problems with debconf, which a symtom of some sort of python2.7 issue. I installed / upgrade python2.7 and got my working 13.04 system.

I currently run Kubuntu, and it looks great.

Distributor ID: Ubuntu

Writer ==> help ==> about ==> Version (Build ID: 400m0(Build:2)

apt-cache policy libreoffice

What is output?

David (hackbinary) said : #5


I did an apt-get update & apt-get upgrade
so I'm up at whatever is in the repo.

If there is anyway I can help out more formally with testing and maybe packaging I'd be happy to spend some time helping out.

For your information, I ran just ran your apt-cach policy libreoffice:
  Installed: 1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1:4.0.1-0ubuntu1 0
        500 raring/universe amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Then you already have LibreOffice 4 installed, why do you need a PPA when it's in the official repositories?
