Hello everton, So sorry, It appears that you will need to redo from scratch. I tried a number of programs but none of them could read that file. dathem

Stop using open office and move to libreoffice.

Much better about saving before shutdown to prevent loss.

Better all the way around.

Extract

inside is a read me file tells ya what to do.

Don't get easier.

Never need to go it alone, Ya have all of us to help ya along lol.

Right-click within the directory and choose "Open in Terminal". A terminal window will open. From the command line of the terminal window, enter the following command (you will be prompted to enter your root user's password before the command will execute):

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

The above dpkg command does the first part of the installation process. To complete the process, you also need to install the desktop integration packages. To do this, change directory to the "desktop-integration" directory that is within the "DEBS" directory, using the following command:

cd desktop-integration

Now run the dpkg command again:

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

The installation process is now completed, and you should have icons for all the LibreOffice applications in your desktop's Applications/Office menu.
