[Solved] LibreOffice removal
« on: September 14, 2016, 11:49:21 am »
Hi
I want to install Apache OpenOffice instead of LibreOffice.
apt-get remove libreoffice* gives:

apt-listchanges: APT_HOOK_INFO_FD environment variable is incorrectly defined
(Dpkg::Tools::Options::/usr/bin/apt-listchanges::InfoFD should be greater than 2).
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/apt-listchanges --apt || test $? -ne 10 returned an error code (1)
E: Failure running script /usr/bin/apt-listchanges --apt || test $? -ne 10

How can I remove LibreOffice?

*update: A system upgrade along with APTus-Fix Broken solved this problem.

Of course you can install or uninstall any office suite you like. This is Linux after all  ;)
But OpenOffice's future is a bit unclear right now: http://lwn.net/Articles/699047/

what does

"apt remove -s libreoffice*" 

show?   ##  the -s switch runs a simulation but does not actually proceed with the actions. 

Silly other question - you are running

"apt-get remove libreoffice*"     as  root or via sudo  - right?

I was looking at a hunch.  Looks like you would lose way more than libreoffice. 

It would not hurt to look at

"apt-get -s remove libreoffice"      ##  libreoffice is the metapackage 

As py-thon above, my opinion is in the long run you will like libreoffice more than openoffice - but linux means you have choices.
