Re: Libreoffice defaults to A4 regardless of locales

The fix should meanwhile be available as an update. You can check that it works: eg. select Spanish for Costa Rica (es_CR.utf8 ) at login you'll have as default papersize "letter" within LO and also default papersize for the printer. And if you e.g, select Spanish for Bolivia (es_BO.utf8) or Spanis...

Re: Freedom is the key to success with any distro

Honestly, I haven't found any more freedom than in here, not to mention the great devs and community that are always willing to help.

If there's no way to affect the LO to OS connection in this regard, you can change the page layout in your default LO template.


This weird behavior was not present in MX-17. I wonder what happened.

Thanks a lot for the idea about changing the template. That was a quick fix! :number1:

[SOLVED] Libreoffice defaults to A4 regardless of locales

Hi, I seem not to be able to change the default paper size of LO to "letter" (the one we use here) unless I choose the US locale in the login screen (and thus the system is in English). Is there a way to set "letter" as the default paper size for locales that use the Spanish language? Any help will ...

Re: Openshot version 2.4.1

I have openshot-qt 2.4.1 and it's two prerequisite libraries loaded and ready to build, so it should be in the repo in a day or so. I've was messing around with the development GIMP 2.9.9~prelease in my separate Debian multimedia repo; that was a bit of a challenge for the Jessie builds, but it did...

Re: Openshot version 2.4.1
