So i installed the writer package for libreoffice, but the start center still has active buttons for all the other components and when clicked they do nothing. So the File > New menu doesnt show me the ability to create documents from the non-installed components, so that same logic should be used when disabling the buttons in the start center.

I'm assuming this only affects linux as i believe the windows installer makes it mandatory that all components are installed. This was tested on LO on Solus OS.

Should be fixed in 5.2 and 5.3. Maybe we should backport this to 5.1?
