Would you like to try LibreOffice 6 ?

It might fix whatever is broken in your LO 5.

If so, follow the instructions below....



Open a terminal and run the following commands in sequence
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*
then
Code: [Select]
mv ~/.config/libreoffice ~/.config/libreoffice-old
then
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Before dealing with Libre Office as you suggest I have been considering going from existing Peppermint 7 to 9 in  which case I could defer Libre business until 9 is in. However, if I simply download 9 does it overwrite 7 or do I end up with both?

Your advice on this would be most welcome.

The installer should give you the option to REPLACE Peppermint 8, or ALONGSIDE Peppermint 8

Choosing REPLACE will completely wipe the drive, then install Peppermint 9

Choosing ALONGSIDE will shrink the Peppermint 8 partition, and create a new one for Peppermint 9 .. so you choose which to boot into.



On another note, Peppermint 9 already has LibreOffice 6 out of the box.

DIRECT istallation would not come up so I used the recmmended TORRENT. Was not offered a choice of REPLACE or ALONGSIDE. I have ended up with a window which refers to a 128 GB disc and instruction to "Restore disc image". Not sure what's going on here.

Have you burned the ISO image you downloaded to a USB stick ?

If not, what OS are you going to use whilst creating the USB stick .. Peppermint 7 ?

Not yet.  Peppermint 7 is all I have.

I notice that DIRECT download works from the Users Guide. Can I abort the TORRENT process and use DIRECT as originally intended?
