Subject: libreoffice-common: If libreoffice-impress isn't installed, trying to create a new impress document doesn't do anything
Date: Mon, 01 Feb 2016 15:30:04 -0500

Package: libreoffice-common
Version: 1:5.0.5~rc1-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

A minor issue, though it confused me for a while.  Somehow I didn't install "libreoffice", but just "libreoffice-writer", 
and so if I type "libreoffice", I get a dialog that has new buttons for documents, calcs, impress presentations, etc.

When I click "new impress document" it does nothing.  No log messages to stdout/err, no popup, etc.  I've been having some dbus 
issues, so I thought it was something along those lines, but eventually figured out that it simply wasn't installed.  Duh.

It would be nice if when trying to create a document that isn't installed, there was a popup that says, 
"you need to install libreoffice-impress" or whatever.  Or maybe remove the buttons so then I can't click on them.
