libreoffice v3.4 install did not succeed -- not sure why
I tried to follow published instructions to
I could use locate and find the various parts of the application suite but it was messy to get things to work.
Since I'm installing DEB files that I presume work well enough,
I'm asking this question here thinking that I have done something wrong dancing with the package(s).
Thanks in advance,
Hey SaintDanBert, could it be that openoffice.org did not install in the correct location - if this happens it may be difficult to locate.
Try launching the program via command line like this:
$ libreoffice &
If you are able to launch the program then, it would mean that the package is installed in an unrecognized location for the system to synchronize it into the program list for easy access - this will require you to manually add the program to your menu panel for easy access.
If you are unable to launch the program, then you may wish to see if the package is being recognized by the synoptic package manager - if it is, install it from there. If synoptic package manager doesn't recognize the package then, that would be the problem.
this is Ubuntu 10 you are on ?
if so libreoffice 4.3 might be too new
install the STABLE 3.3.4
** I continue to have menu options for LibreOffice apps that fail to launch anything
** I continue to have broken associations such that double-click of files within Nautilus
fail to launch the correct LibreOffice component
** Command line effort fail to find LibreOffice components in the $PATH.
I know that I'm the one with stink on my shoes over this, but I cannot seem to resolve
things back to the default install. Clearly I broke something, left a meadow muffin,
and now attempts to unravel come away soiled.
I appreciate any help,
