OpenOffice won't, well, open

Post by deppen76 » October 18th, 2017, 12:30 pm

I can't open it from apps, the icon in the tray, not even when I try to open a document. I removed something soffice, A forum said that works; it does not. If I reinstall it, will I lose all my documents?

If you uninstall it you might, but you should have backups of all your documents and other data. If not, that should be the first thing you do. Then Uninstall and reinstall and restore your docuents.

reinstalling should not effect your docs but you can back them up before you do you don't have to open the app to do that
