I will pass this on. I still think it is uncalled for. Why not
them removable via the Extension Manager. Not a good way to do
this goes into the release then it is another reason to not move to
Maybe we should wait to hear the reasoning behind installing
extensions this way. There must be a reason.
BTW, I am also of the opinion that this should be re-thought. Adding
another layer of difficulty for our members/users is only going to
frustrate them. The extensions should only be removable through the
Extension Manager and no where else. Unless there is an extremely
good reason to do this. The user/admin should always be in control.
Links were posted that explained how things work. I understand how
and maybe even why, but that does not mean I agree with them.
In my book, it is called a bug.
The philosophy was explained and I read how non-removable extensions
should now be installed or removed, but the procedure doesn't work under
Windows 7. For instance, I am able to open the installer and modify my
installation to remove the Vietnamese dictionary; however I cannot
modify my installation to remove the PDF Import and Persenter Console.
And there is no way I can remove the "Dictionnaire français moderne" to
replace it with the traditional one that I prefer (irregardless of one's
preference, it is a mistake to mix in the same document traditional
spelling like "aiguë" with the newer one like "aigüe"; it's one OR the
other, so the selected dictionary has to signal one of them as a typo).
And what's worst: if I try to remove one of those locked extensions,
LibreOffice quits abruptly.
So what is the solution?
- Either go back to the previous situation, where those extensions were
removeable from within Office. Locked extensions required someone with
administrative privileges and removing them required a restart ; others
- Or don't call them extensions, but simply modules that are installed
within the program. Reserve the Extension window for true extensions
that are installed locally by the user. In that case, I would have only
one extension (rgb), not 36, and the Extensions window would again be
