    the system is sonyvaio vpcsa and it has 2 video card Intel Sandy Bridge on chip and Ati Radeon 6630m. It also has 4ssd in Raid mode, so I couldn't install with normal desktop distro.
    What do you mean by how did I install it? It is a manual step by step text mode procedure.

    I didn't see your Ubuntu version glaring at me me like a 20,000,000kw neon sign and had assumed you installed Libre Office manually. That's what I meant.

    Re: Ubuntu alternate log errors

    This difficulty could very well have something to do with the version of Java you are running....possibly one of the Free versions. I have a tendency to like Sun Java for my java apps.

    Thanks for the info. Following your advice I have also installed SUN Java. Any way, the computer is running smoothly no more freezing.

    Re: Ubuntu alternate log errors

    The problem is related to the poor driver support for Intel SandyBridge HD3000 graphics. The solution was to disable the AntiAliasing option in my LibreOffice. This problem is discussed here
