No "Remove Extra Languages" option in 5.4.2

Submitted by Rzeznik on October 19, 2017 - 5:38pm

I installed the latest version of LO and found this option was missing. I even installed the suite again only to double check I haven't missed the option during setup. It's not there.

The extra language removal option didn't work perfectly (it would always leave 5 dictionaries intact instead of just 2), but still it did some job. Now I have to remove the dictionaries folders manually and I guess lots of language stuff still exist in other parts of the suite (like UI, for example).

What happened?

I have recently upgraded LibreOffice to the latest version using the platform.

Unfortunately, I am unable to launch any of the LiibreOffice programmes. When I click on one of the programmes the LibreOffice banner will load and start to go through the process then disappears and nothing happens.

I am using Windows XP.

LibreOffice 5.4.1 portable package on Win-7 x64: install fail repeatedly

Submitted by Krakalow on October 7, 2017 - 12:35pm

(Previous LO version had been installed badly ... on USB-stick; and was not used so far.)
Newly announced LO 5.4.1 portable on PortableApps noticed this when update process was started and recommended new full download of LibreOfficePortable_5.4.1_MultilingualStandard.paf.exe.
This was done twice with the same failure when installing.
A second download of the package (identical file) also ended with the same failure, i.e.
aborting the installation with: Could not save the file "Radial05-Sphere-Blue.svg".
Stick-medium should be ok. ...

Fonts used in LO

did I got it right:
when the font-directory within the portableapps-folder contains font-files, the system-fonts are not used anymore?
I have seen this after stripping the LO-font-zip to that folder an odg- drawing showed differnt, but after copying the
missing font-file from system-folder to that folder, everything worked. so the question: feature or bug?
