Hi :)
You might need to install Base. I think it's the only module that can be
installed separately on Gnu&Linux systems. So something like

sudo apt-get install libreoffice-base

should do the trick on a distro from the debian-family. Please let us know
how this goes!
Good luck and regards form
Tom :)


Just checked with Ubuntu's package manager and Base was in fact not installed. Used it to install Base and now the option appears so I should be able to proceed. Sort of surprised as I thought the entire suite had been installed.

Thanks Tom

Using LibreOffice 3.5.7.2 on Ubuntu 12.04.

I am working with a ooBasic tutorial. It says to choose
File-->New-->Database to create a new database. The problem is there is no
Database item on that drop down menu. Also, on the opening screen the
Database entry is grayed out.

I actually have a database on my system that I was experimenting with a
couple of years ago. If I go to Tools-->Options-->LibreOffice-->Databases
it shows there but I can't open it.

Anyone have any idea of what could be wrong and how to enable databases
again?

Thanks, Jim
