Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-06-04 22:41:19 UTC
In addition to the OK button that appears when you decide to change the UI language, it would be nice to have a restart now type button.
Comment 1 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-06-09 16:52:33 UTC
Valid enhancement proposition.

Best regards. JBF

I am suggesting it for the UI language dialog, but i think this restart button concept can apply to other dialogs which also require a restart.

See svtools/uiconfig/ui/restartdialog.ui and include/svtools/restartdialog.hxx

The best approach is typically to add another "reason" to the restartdialog.hxx and the .ui file and to use executeRestartDialog when you want to restart libreoffice
Comment 4 How can I remove my account? 2016-03-15 12:20:42 UTC
But ideally, of course, this should Just Work with no need to restart LibreOffice.
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-03-16 06:03:08 UTC
If i remember correctly, with Ubuntu you also have to restart the desktop session in order for a user to switch the language.
