[SOLVED] Corrupt install of LibreOfffice (Ubuntu11.10)
« on: May 17, 2013, 01:28:05 pm »
I can't remember how it happened but somehow I've got a corrupt LibreOfffice (v3.4).

I have tried to update it through Synaptic Package Manager. I have even tried the remove purge commands in Terminal, that didn't work either.

Any suggestions on what I can do?

BTW, this is on Mrs Pookys lappy.

Try this ..

Make sure ALL LibreOffice apps are closed .. then open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.config/libreoffice ~/.config/libreoffice-broken
Now see if LibereOffice will start

Okey dokey .. let's purge LibreOffice, delete the configs, then reinstall it.

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*
then:
Code: [Select]
rm -r ~/.config/.libreoffice
then:
Code: [Select]
rm -r ~/.config/.libreoffice-broken
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libreoffice
Now does it work ?

Make sure ALL instances of libreoffice are closed, then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm /var/lib/libreoffice/share/prereg/.lock
then do what I said in my last posting again.
