Hey there,
this is not a bug, but clicking on "file an enhancement request" on the website led me here.

When installing/updating LO, there is no option to avoid installing the bundled fonts. While this is certainly great for a first-time installation, it would be helpful if users were able to deselect these fonts in the custom setup.

Cases in which a new installation of these fonts would be undesirable include:
- LO comes with an older version of fonts that the user has updated
- the user has modified the font files according to personal preferences
- the user has deleted certain fonts these don't use to save disk space

In all these situations, the LO installer will automatically undo any modifications the user has made.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open setup
2.Choose "custom s" (setup or whatever it's called)
3.No option to deselect fonts

Actual Results:
No option to deselect fonts during setup

Expected Results:
"Fonts" flag in the installer

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
