So I have made this package work again. It’s currently in a testing mode. Feel free to test it (not on your production server) as you have tried to setup it in the past.

If you have a problem to remove it, try this, and notice it here:

touch /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/25loolwsd
apt remove loolwsd

Note: i don’t know if i will maintain it (because i need to test onlyoffice too and choose the best for my use case)


Random very boring remark but : if we could have consistent name between the manifest id (collabora), the repo name (collaboraonline) and the key in community.json (collabora), I would be sooo happy :stuck_out_tongue: (so maybe renaming the repo while the app still aint used a lot)



@ljf, when you’ll have tested both, could you give us a feedback?
