I am having constant and enduring trouble opening up many/all files in libre office calc.
My file(s) were created in LibreOffice.
I am not sure what version they were created in because I have already removed that version.
The version of Libre Office I am currently using is:
libreoffice: Installed: 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial10 Candidate: 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial10 Version table: *** 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial10 500 500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates/universe amd64 Packages 500 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security/universe amd64 Packages 100 /var/lib/dpkg/status 1:5.1.2-0ubuntu1 500 500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/universe amd64 Packages
For example I have a file that this is 40 kb. I have tried two ways to open the file: (1) I find the file in the file tree in Ubuntu and click on it; or (2) I first open Libre Office Calc and then go to 'open' and browse my way to the file. In either case, the window goes dark/opaque, but after minutes go by, there is still no action.
Here is what I have done so far to sort this out (unsuccessfully)
- remove/ purge libre office
- update ubuntu
- reinstall libre office
Still, I'm not able to open my files.
Please bear in mind that I am an absolute beginner.
Please no jargon, no acrconyms.
Please give any commands in full -- assuming I only know how to cut and paste.
