Unable to open documents in OpenOffice writer
 
Hi, I'm Rowe and I'm new in using linux.
I have a problem with regards to opening the open office. every time I open a document, I cannot view it. It says the application cannot be started. The user interface language cannot be determined. What's the possible cause on this? How will i correct this error? Please help me.
thank you so much.
