Multiple versions of the same extension

Postby arch » Thu Jun 25, 2015 11:28 am

Hello,
I wonder if it is possible to have multiple versions of the same extension. To have them installed but have an option to enable/disable versions so only one version gets to be active?
OpenOffice Version : 4.1.0
Os : Arch Linux x86_64

Which extension did you have in mind? normally an install of a later version overwrites the earlier. Off the top of my head: a possible way to do this might be to install OpenOffice for a specific user, not "for all users". Do this repeatedly for different users and install the extension versions for specific users.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.2 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
