Openoffice stopped working/installing.

Postby malcolm » Mon May 05, 2008 6:22 am

I have recently installed linuxmint 4.0 KDE.

I wanted to upgrade openoffice to version 2.4. I downloaded the debian version, and deleted all references to openoffice (via rm etc) I could find on the harddrive.

I now cannot reinstall openoffice (via adept) , or run the update (dpkg -i *.deb results in lots of file missing errors).

There has to be a way to resolve this problem, without needing to reinstall linux.

I am a linux newbie, so I will need simple instructions on what to do.

thanks for any help!

Reinstall and do not try to update OO
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
