Thank you, I'll try to remember this one.

Yep I had installed them, just meant it needed extra libs.
Still, gen rendering is nearer to Windows rendering than kf5 too (at least
it seems too).

I understand but IMHO Skia support in LO is not enough mature (first commit
on master branch of LO is in 2019-11-27 so just 1 year whereas it's an
essential component) and above all, it needs at least one additional
maintainer (for me the main pb here) (see my response to Chris).
