Something is wrong. Would you like some sighted assistance? If so:
[i] what distro are you running; [ii] which version of that distro are
you using; and [iii] do you need 32-bit or 64-bit?

I can quickly install it to a virtual machine then see what 's
happening. Also there are other RPM downloads available that package
the 32-bit and 64-bit builds separately. And if the latest release has
an RPM issue, there is the previous release.

OOo had a top-to-bottom accessibility overhaul long before the
Document Foundation forked it to produce LibreOffice. Moreover, the
major player and contributor of developers in the Document Foundation.
Novell owns SuSE, which has an RPM-based package management system. So
I think it unlikely that the spotlighted download of the RPM packages
is corrupt.

Best regards,
