Hi :)
Ahh, you can "get back to factory defaults" by renaming your User-Profile.  That gets all the 
configurations and settigns back to defaults

Tom :)

Hi Jan,

I've had very, very good luck with LibreOffice, and prior to that, OpenOffice, by using the direct 
downloads rather than the version in the repositories. Disk space doesn't seem to be a problem. 
I've never used a SSD, but I've read where they have a finite number of times that they can be 
written to. What I would suggest you try is to install the version of LibreOffice from their site. 
I assume with it being a netbook you are running 32 bit. If so, you can do the following if you 
wish to give this a try:
1. Download the current LibreOffice version 3.4.5 from here:
Make sure you get the Linux x86 (deb) version for a 32 bit system.
Download this file to your desktop, or copy it to your desktop once you have it downloaded.

2. Right click on the downloaded folder and extract it to your desktop. You will then have a folder 
called    LibO_3.4.5rc2_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US     on your desktop.

3. Run the following three commands in the terminal:
        sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*                 This will remove your current 
LibreOffice version from your system. You will still have your preferences that you presently use.

        sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibO_3.4.5rc2_Linux_x86_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/*.deb                 
      This does the basic install.

        sudo dpkg -i 
              This installs your menus.

I've never bothered with the help files which are a separate download. Once you have done the above 
steps, you can easily add the portions of LibreOffice in the Launcher bar by clicking on the Dash 
button (top button on the launcher bar), and typing libre. All of the applications will show up. 
Simply left and hold the button down the ones you want and drag the icon to where you want it in 
the launcher.

If you should happen to be running 64 bit, I can send the instructions for it.

I don't know if there might be an issue with your configuration file being corrupted. I've never 
had that happen, but some folks have. I don't have those instructions, but others on this board do.

Good luck!

Is the Ubuntu side full-up?  If you open a folder to look at the documents
inside then the menus at the top of the file-browser allow you to tick

Hi Tom,
Yes, I have a full install of Ubuntu. I have a 160 gig HD and it does not
have partitions, except for a small swap area. I still have more than 130
gig available.

I learned several years ago to save all files  of any importance to an
external drive. Right now I use a 16 gig ssd, which is about half full. I
have tried to "save as" to a different area, such as the home documents
folder, but get the same error message.
