Default R: a little help please

You could do the download again, and see where the file is being stored. Or, open your preferences in your browser and click on download to see where they are sent.

OR, you could open a terminal and write:* locate* openoffice

I did not find OpenOffice in my download file.

My main problem with Libre is the very small image of a document I am creating on my screen. I must lean toward the monitor to see/read the document.* Cannot find how to enlarge the image or to change the default font.



I also find the "Help" section of Libre very complicated and overpowering.

What is it you dislike about Libreoffice? Libreoffice is simply a branch of Openoffice, and Openoffice isn't being developed as much as Libreoffice. Libreoffice is simply Openoffice rebranded (many of the Openoffice developers left Openoffice to work on their own branch, Libreoffice,)

If you are using firefox and haven't changed the default - I believe
you'll find it in your home in the Download folder

you might want to install the package: libreoffice-gtk
If devs are listening, this package should be a default dependencie of libreoffice on xubuntu.

How about libreoffice-gtk?
you've got to investigate what's wrong with libre.
In my experience libreoffice is better than openoffice in every respect.
