Hi Ubuntu LibreOffice packagers,

I've noticed, that in Ubuntu's LibreOffice 5.2 builds (PPA and
Yaketty) there is no possibility to enable quickstarter in Preferences
dialog, while in Debian LibreOffice 5.2 a new libreoffice-systray
package appeared, which provides this functionality.

Please build (re-enable) libreoffice-systray package, Ubuntu users
need faster LibreOffice startup, look at Debian bug 825642 for
I support several schools and small companies, which use Libreoffice
since 2010 (and Ubuntu since 2008) - all computers have enabled
quickstarter, because LibreOffice startup is too long on older
hardware with slow HDDs ;)

Debian LibreOffice packages have re-enabled systray building since
5.2.1~rc1, see debian/changelog.
Here is the patch for ENABLE_SYSTRAY in debian/rules and creating
additional libreoffice-systray package in debian/control :

libreoffice (1:5.2.1~rc1-1) experimental; urgency=medium
  * new upstream release candidate .
  * debian/rules, debian/ readd -gtk astransitional
    package; depend on -gtk2 (closes: #833676) and -systray
  * debian/rules: re-enable systray (closes: #825642)

I've also reported a bug, see:
