Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: Installing on Mac OS X

Hi all,

Pardon my intrusion into your fight. For the record I have never seen a Mac. Also, English (US) is my native language.

That said, it makes no sense to me for execution of any program one time before adding a language pack to it should make it any safer after adding the language pack than waiting to execute it for the first time until after an appropriate language pack has been added.

What am I missing in this discussion? I know that I would flee in horror from any program that natively had a Greek UI if that program had to be executed once that way before I could install an available English language pack. Is this not analogous to the topic under discussion?

As for Larry's protestation that the download did not go wrong, I don't know how anybody can be absolutely certain of that. Error checking is very sophisticated now but there is also a very slim chance that offsetting corruptions could occur. I would at least try a second download before eliminating "bad download" as a possible cause of trouble. <paranoia> Even one chance in 10^100 of an error creeping in is still not zero. It's excellent for most purposes -- just not _absolutely_ perfect. </paranoia> ;-)

To clarify:
When you download LibreOffice and a language pack and install LibreOffice and then install the
language pack before opening LibreOffice you will get the error message.

If you have already opened LibreOffice before installing the language pack, like you did, the
language pack will install and you will not get an error message.

This is a serious issue for non-english speaking people since they are likely to install the
language pack before they open LibreOffice.

Installing a language pack before opening LibreOffice modifies the program and makes the
certificate invalid since it does not cover the modification.

Perhaps I should just stick with Apache OpenOffice instead of using a clone.
