Hi Tom,

I did that, and I also tried downloading from the PPA. The same thing happened. I'm sure this has to be a Chrubuntu issue since my installs have always worked fine on other Ubuntu installs. One strange thing though. When I was purging the failed installed, I had an error message show up in the terminal, once yesterday, and once today, saying:
Reading package lists... Done
W: Duplicate sources.list entry stable/main amd64 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
I did run the apt-get update, but that didn't change anything. I don't know why that would show up when I'm purging LibreOffice. I wasn't smart enough to think about going to that file and editing it until now.

Thanks for your concern and assistance!

Hi :)
Sounds like you just need to have another go at installing LibreOffice
from the download you got from the official website

There are some proper instructions somewhere.

Hi Tom,

In my conventional laptop, where LibreOffice works perfectly, if I enter
soffice in the terminal, I get the following:

The program 'soffice' is currently not installed. You can install it by
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-common

In the Chromebook I get "command not found". Maybe I will need to try  PPA
version. Everything else so far seems fine.

Since I first posted, I found it doesn't want to install the repository
version of Wine because of missing dependencies. On the positive side, it is
blazingly fast. From boot to a fully loaded Ubuntu 13.10 in 15

Hi :)
Can you get to a command-line and open LibreOffice from there?
Ctrl Alt t
should open a terminal console.  Then the command
should open LIbreOffice.  If it doesn't (or maybe even if it does)
then hopefully the command-line should show some error messages which
might give some clue about what's gone wrong.
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi Everyone,

I recently just bought an Acer Chromebook C-720, and used Chrubuntu to
install Ubuntu 13.10 on it. On my other Linux machines when I do a clean
install I completely purge the system of the Ubuntu LO version, and then
install The Document Foundation version. I'm presently running on
them. Once Chrubuntu was installed on the Chromebook, I purged it of the
Ubuntu version, which was 4.1.3.x and installed Libreoffice
However, unlike with the installs on my other machines, none of the LO apps
show up in dash at all. LO does show up in synaptic. It is like before LO
had the menus as part of the install where there were not any menus without
installing them separately. I'm sure there are not many people doing this,
but any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
