I'm installing LibreOffice on my elementary OS, i have tried with

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

and finally sudo apt-get install libreoffice

But when i open LibreOffice from Applications, the pc go to "suspend" can you help me?

  • What do you mean by suspend.Does it go to sleep , turn off or the screen turns off.

1 Answer 1


If you have a program you have installed that gives you a problem, try this:

sudo apt-get purge libreoffice
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get install libreoffice
sudo apt-get -f install

"sudo -f install" essentially fixes bad installs and missing dependencies/libraries/whatever.
