Downgrading LibreOffice To Early Versions (6.0)

Post by Braznyc » Thu Aug 15, 2019 9:55 am

After upgrading LibreOffice to the latest version everything seems to be slow. It takes forever to start applications like Calc.
It used to run smooth before the upgrade.

Something like the early version of LO, like 6.0 will be great!

Any help is welcome.

What version have you upgraded to and how did you perform the upgrade?

Old versions of LibreOffice are also available as AppImages. AppImage is one of the “universal” package management systems - others include Snappy and Flatpak. An AppImage is not ”installed" in the traditional sense like an application or Snap or Flatpak; it is a self-contained image of the application, and it contains everything it needs to run.

An advantage to using the AppImage is it does not actually install to your system, so it will have little (to no) impact on your other applications. Including the installed version of LibreOffice. I have used both the installed version and the AppImage version of LibreOffice concurrently without any problems. If you do not like the AppImage, simply delete the file.

Download the AppImage for the version you want, make it executable, and run.

To make it executable: Right-click the icon, choose Properties/Permissions, tick the box to Allow executing file as program.

Stable versions of the LibreOffice AppImage can be found here.
