Libreoffice TexMaths stopped working, crashes on update

Bug Description


Recently the Libreoffice TexMaths extension icons turned from icons into text, and stopped working. I tried to use the Extensions Manager to update the plugin, but it crashes Libreoffice. I tried to completely remove the extension with synaptic, and install the latest directly from Libreoffice. It complains about the .oxt being missing from .config/.... I tried to copy it there, and the directory doesn't exist. The version in the repo is 0.43, and the latest is 0.48.

Thanks for your work on the issue!

I went to the comment here:
And I did the find. I removed the TexMaths directory with:
rm -rf ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/TexMaths
Then I made the directory that Libreoffice complained was missing and put the .oxt in there, that it said it was looking for. It did seem to install and restart Libreoffice, but it didn't work immediatedly. I went back to the Exthensions Manager and updated it, and now it works.
