Mite be useful to Linux users. I have AOO  4.0 & LO 4.1 installed on 
Wheezy. With a little help, both run fine. As mentioned, destop 
integration is an issue.

 Libreoffice, afaikt, does not need to use 'soffice', they have renamed 
all their executables to 'libreoffice', not sure why  they use 
the 'soffice symlink which is in the libreoffice-common package.

I used "dpkg -i --force-all" to install the desktop integration package 
fron AOO, it overwrites the symlink of LO. Install LO first, it is in 
all the Linux distros anyway, install AOO, which is a manual install, 
for Linux users. Use the 'dpkg -i --force-all' for the desktop 
integration package, one file.
