Re: 12.04 issues
Yes, and you've been told how above - however, don't dismiss the Unity desktop just because it's different. It's actually a very modern, cleverly-designed and helpful desktop once you get used to it.

I don't understand what you want to do, sorry.
3) Can LibreOffice be removed and OpenOffice be installed? Again, I've used OpenOffice for 10+ years and prefer it.
Libreoffice is Go-OO, which is the fork of Openoffice that Ubuntu used to ship with. Go-OO is Openoffice with additional features. Therefore, Libreoffice is Openoffice with additional features.
I'm not sure how you can prefer Openoffice? Unless you haven't yet opened Libreoffice to actually see what it looks like - which is, identical to Openoffice!
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
