[Slackbuilds-users] [libreoffice] The lack of symlinks loxxx prevent opening of documents with Xfe

Xfe file manager includes file associations to open documents supported by
libreoffice with programs named: lobase, localc, lodraw, loimpress, lomath
and lowriter.

However, the libreoffice package (the one which repackage official binary)
does not include binaries/symlinks/wrappers with those names, which force
user to create new file associations to be able to directly open documents
supported by libreoffice with Xfe.

The patch below (also in attachment) fixes this issue:
