I may have forgotten to mention that I have OpenOffice 4.0.x and

That may me an issue, I'm thinking now.
Yes could be.
I've set up a couple of users as a test case- one with OpenOffice
4.0.x only, and one with LibreOffice 4.1.x only.
And I also should have mentioned that the source of the programs is
from and, from the tar.gz of deb files,
installed with dpkg -i without complaints.
We generally recommend you install from PPA's not from the website. Our
debian packages on the website are not packaged explicitly for Ubuntu --
much better to stick to PPA's which are packaged by Bjoern (Canonical
employee) specifically for Ubuntu. If I were you, I'd purge LIbreOffice
completely and install through ppa without OpenOffice installed.


I never heard of the PPA over website version install recommendation before.

I always download the new version I want to install from the web site. That way I do not have to upgrade to any version I do not want to use. I will be running the 4.1.x line till the 4.2.x line gets to the .3 or .4 version. Will the PPA allow that to happen or will it keep telling me that there is a new 4.2.x version it wants me to install over the 4.1.4, or 4.1.5, 4.1.6 version I will have installed on my system?
