Bug Description

Per this question on ask.LO:

When I'm in LibreOffice Calc and try to assign an Adress [sic] book by the File -> Templates -> Adress Book Source -> Adress Data Source I get the following error: The component ( could not be loaded. Please start setup with the repair option.

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 (64-bit) and LibreOffice Build ID: 350m1(Build:2) and don't know how to fix this / start the repair option.

The reporter made a follow-up comment describing the fix:

Installing the "LibreOffice" suite by the software center of Ubuntu fixed the problem. By default Ubuntu only installs a few LibreOffice programs. Probably the Adress [sic] Book is only usable if you have the full suite.

It looks like either the Calc package needs an extra package or two added as a dependency, or the Calc stand-alone package needs to be configured to disable the Address Book functionality.

re:quantal -- I don't currently have a system running quantal to test and confirm that the bug is no longer present. As I just passed the bug information along from a question on the ask.LO site, if it works for you on your quantal sytem, that's good enough for me as well :-)

Seems to be fixed in libreoffice4beta1 as in the prereleases ppa: Adress Data Source only shows up with base installed.
