I hope someone can help. However, please note right up front, that I'm
very new to Linux and that explanations please need to be kept simple.
Thanks. (20 years supporting/training Microsoft, so good general
background, but Linux is still a new "language & culture") I made the

reinstalling OpenOffice (without uninstalling) with no joy.
I hope that some light can be shed.
