I know (and this is not only the case for this instruction, but also 
for https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Install/Linux 
and other instructions ... :( ). I just need the "for i in..." and 
the bootstraprc entry to copypaste it (slightly customised) ... ;)

Well, I prefer the "UserInstallation=$ORIGIN/.." entry, as LO then 
creates its config folder in /path/to/instdir instead of creating it 
somewhere in .config. So I just need to "rm -rf /path/to instdir" 
instead of running two times "rm -rf" ... ;)

Thanks for your additional comment and have a nice day
