Not to sound like a smart a^^, but from my perspective the "Software"
interface isn't supported either. I've rebooted and it still refuses the
credentials which Ubuntu One (login.ubuntu.com) has no problem with.

Has anyone actually used it? Maybe you have to use it to install something
"nonfree." I'm not sure why it lists libreoffice as "nonfree." I used to
install it all the time without any such consideration.

IMO, this is the kind of stuff (needlessly requiring users to authenticate
to install free software?) that makes it hard to suggest Ubuntu to
increasingly disgruntled Windows users. I know GRUB and things are
difficult in their own right. But, installing Libreoffice shouldn't be this
much drama. (Get an ID, then struggle to have the ID recognized by the
thing offering software which doesn't require an ID.).

Thanks, I didn't even think of using Synaptic. It's already installed in
Lubuntu. I found Libreoffice there and installed it.
