I installed Libreoffice from the official web site. Te application looks bad, with some sections dark, and letters in gray. Unconfortable to work with. How can I fully remove the isntallation? I executed

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*

Didn't work.

In the directory where all DEBS were stored, and from which I executed "dpkg -i", I executed:

$ sudo dpkg -r *.deb

I get an error in Sanish, which translation is

error: you must specify the packets by their own names, not citing the names of the files in which they come

  • You really should use Elementary store to install Libreoffice. It works perfectly.
