Hi :)
Glad to hear it installed properly this time :))  Congrats!  :)
Thanks for letting us know how you fixed it! :)

You might fix the synaptic problem by doing;

sudo apt-get check

Also doing a reboot after getting a bunch of updates sometimes helps
and then clean-up by doing these four commands;

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get remove

Very handy that the keyboard up-arrow brings previous commands back
onto the command-line so that you can edit them!  Then Ctrl left-arrow
skips a word at a time.

Having said that i have 2 *buntu systems that now don't open synaptic
so it might be some problem that lots of people are having at the
moment and that will doubtless be fixed fairly soon.

Err, wrt me getting 2 copies of the message - i really don't mind.
Pressing delete twice in quick succession is not much more onerous
than pressing it once.  I know some people get all unreasonable about
it but i'm fine with it.

It's not Thunderbird's fault btw.  It's the way this mailing list is
set-up now.  It didn't used to be but people fought for it to be made
awkward and clunky like this.  TB has a button called something like
"Group Reply" or something but almost no other commonly used emailer
has such a ting so people have to use "Reply to all" instead.  So we
are very used to getting matched pairs of messages.

Regards from
Tom :)

[with apologies to Tom who'll see this twice. I wish Thunderbird defaulted
to 'reply to list'. not 'reply to sender'!]

Hi :) Hmm, i am not sure.  Have you made sure you have
administrator/SuperUser rights?  Sudo perhaps? Regards from Tom :)

I upgraded to 4.4 on Qiana by adding the ppa
and upgrading (using apt - synaptic has a few problems on
this system.) Seems to work OK.

I was curious to test LO4.4, so i tried to install it on Linux Mint
17 Qiana. I followed the installation instructions, first purged
the old LO-version, downloaded the file, checked it, etc...
installation worked fine. but when I try to start it, wheter from
the icons or from the command line, i get this error message


Libre Office 4.4 - Fatal Error The application cannot be started.
User installation could not be completed.
