[LibreOffice] libicuuc.so.70: cannot open shared object file

It seems like this issue that appeared a year ago, has reoccured yet again.
LibreOffice just requires a library from the "icu" package to be in version 70, but the latest one that is downloaded from "pacman" is already 71.

I have an updated version of the workaround, that was mentioned in the older topic though:
1. Download "icu-70.1-1.0-ARCHITECTURE.pkg.tar.zst", replacing "ARCHITECTURE" with your architecture ("pentium4", "i686" or "i486") from the "icu" package archive.
2. Use "bsdtar -xzf icu-70.1-1.0-ARCHITECTURE.pkg.tar.zst" to extract the file with the libraries needed for LibreOffice.
3. Create a directory called "icu70" in "/opt", that will have the libraries needed.
4. Copy all files from the "usr/lib" folder in the directory that you've extracted the file, into the "/opt/icu70" directory.
5. Everytime you want to open LibreOffice, run

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/icu70 libreoffice

to start it.

You can easily make an alias for the variable specifying the library path, by typing in

alias libreoffice='LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/icu70 libreoffice'

in your "~/.bashrc" or "~/.zshrc", depending on your shell.

oh right, I didn't think about that, I might edit this post to include that way too then :^)

No problem. Your description is good help in the case the shim package is missing (which happened in the past), just leave it. :-)
