right, depends on a /usr/bin/soffice to reach the installation location

it would work if:

1) /usr/bin/soffice is symlinked to <libo install dir>/program/soffice ; 

2) the user does not install OOo Vanilla at the same time.

In case 2) the LibO tooling will point to OOo installation path instead.

I opened a bug:

But I'm not sure I described it clearly.
