Description matteo sisti sette 2013-02-26 14:00:26 UTC
Problem description: 

Every damn time I upgrade Ubuntu, I have to carefully tune up LibreOffice Calc settings so that I can enter dates as DD/MM/YYYY instead of MM/DD/YYYY. I never remember how I do it, I always have to figure out
(alse see another bug I reported: the way dates are input should match the way they are represented in the cell where you input them).

Then when I upgrade the Ubuntu distribution (e.g. 11.10 to 12.04, 12.04 to 12.10) this thing gets SYSTEMATICALLY reset and I have to figure it out and change the settings again.
Every f***ing time.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: unspecified

Dear matteo sisti sette I know what you mean and yes it is annoying, but this isn't our bug because I think LibreOffice is just reinstalt. so I set it to NOT OUR BUG.

Well, this happens only with LibreOffice and not with other tons of packages I have installed. None or almost none of them looses its settings when I do a distribution upgrade.

So I think you need to distribute the updates in the proper manner or whatever.

I've reported it in the Ubuntu launchpad
