Folks I get the following message when I try to open a *doc  file from 
an e-mail message:

loading component library failed:

I looked on the net and the suggested fix for this message was reinstall 
libre-office, and libre-writer, so I did that. I still get the message 
what else did I miss?

The remainder of LibreOffice appears to run fine.

I am running 14.04.1 LTS and all updates have been applied
