    problem running libreoffice

    Hi,

    I have a big problem with libreoffice (on Kubuntu 12.04)

    I wanted to add libreoffice-pdfimport to my suite and so I typed:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-pdfimport
    It was my error because, in this way, i reinstalled libreoffice too. But now I have a problem bacause libreoffice doesn't run any more.

    when I type

    Code:
    libreoffice
    I get

    Code:
    /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libjvmaccesslo.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    I tried to remove and reinstall libreoffice again, but now I always get this error.

    Can anybody help me please? I need libreoffice for my work

    Thank you

    I suggest purging your libreoffice install and then reinstalling it from the standard Ubuntu 12.04 LTS repositories.

    Ok, but how can I install it from standard Ubuntu 12.04 LTS repositories?

    Because I typed in my terminal as suggested on the web

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice
    but then libreoffice doesn't work.

    It might be better to install libreoffice from the software centre. Just search libreoffice and download what app you need (Writer, Calc, Impress, ect...).

    Re: problem running libreoffice

    Once the ppa removed, update the sources.list and install libreoffice
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice
    libreoffice is a metapackage, all the other packages wil be installed with it.

    Ok I did this but now i can't install libreoffice any more.

    I get this after typing sudo apt-get install libreoffice:

    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done

    Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
    requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
    distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
    or been moved out of Incoming.
    The following information may help to resolve the situation:

    Re: problem running libreoffice

    There is a procedure described here (http://www.thepowerbase.com/2012/04/...ntu-or-debian/) which involves the use of ppa purge. This does not only remove the repositoory, but also downgrades the packages from the archive.

    You just have removed the PPA. Presumably, not all packages introduced by your custom PPA were downgraded.

    You could try the following.
    1) Reinstate the offending PPA
    2) "sudo apt-get update"
    3) Now follow the procedure outlined in the link I gave. It involves removing the offending PPA using PPA purge, which should revert all affected packages to the standard packages of Ubuntu. After that, you should be able to install libreoffice without error.
