I would not say that but it's true that you don't test the LibO
installation using the standard installation procedure of your system. :-)
In fact, and if I understand well, you just unpack all involved packages
and you move them where you want. Doing that you do not run pre and post
install scripts. I think it is not a problem for beta versions. Doing
like this, you avoid the risk of corruption of the dpkg DB if something
goes wrong. :-)

In my case it was the post-install script of the FR dictionary which was
blocking the uninstallation, and I fixed the problem by removing the
content of this script and re-running the uninstallation command.

After having succeeded to uninstall the daily build, I reinstalled it
without any langpack, and it started without problem.

Best regards.
