After upgrading to ubuntu i386 12.04 and installing libreoffice 3.5.2update3 I saw the is no libreoffice-report-builder-bin extention any more. Although there is one in the experimental brance of debian http://packages.debian.org/experimental/libreoffice-report-builder. I can no longer work without reports as they don't open. I use libreoffice base as a frontend to a mysql database.
This is not an SRU candidate due to the following outstanding issues:
+ To include report-builder in main:
The root of the problem is the Java-Maven-dependency-mess -- this makes it nontrivial to enable Report-Builder to be included in main -- I would need the help of the Java team to get that done in time.
+ To include report-builder in universe:
That would essentially mean rewriting the build system of the extensions it is currently build inside LO.
WORKAROUND: In Precise only:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-universe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-report-builder
