Re: Can't open files on desktop by double clicking them
Have you tried to reinstall LibreOffice so the extensions are reset in Thunar? Did that work?
$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall libreoffice-*
should be enough, but might install more things than you already have installed. It is probably best to use Synaptic with the reinstall option selected.
