I remember that there were some printing issues with several of the 3.6.x versions.

Mint, along with other Debian based distros do not often include the most up-to-date version of package in their repository.

I would upgrade to either the last version of the 3.6 line - 3.6.6, or remove the package, and upgrade to 4.0.4.

Your printer issues may be solved by going to the hidden [dot folder] "config" folder for LO and rename it.
".libreoffice" or ".config/libreoffice"
I do not remember when LO changed from one to the other.

By renaming the folder and then reopening LO, it will create a new config folder from scratch, but then you will have to add the personalized touches to LO, like user info and add on extensions.

Hi, can anyone help please?

I'm using Mint 14. It came with libre Office 3.6. Everything seemed fine
but then I could not print in landscape, so I reinstalled my printer. This
didn't help, so I deleted libre writer through the Software Manager., and
then immediately reinstalled it.

Now, when I try and open libre writer I get a message saying it's not
supported by the operating system.

Also, when I try and open the office suite, the calc program opens.

Another reason I deleted libre writer and tried to reinstall is that the
spell checker did not work.

Can anyone suggest how I can install libre writer again?

Many thanks,

Tony Bestwick
