Mates. I was working with a pdf on Drawer, LibreOffice crashed and didn't came back to work.

When I try to load it from the console i get this error:

UNO Exception: InvalidRegistryException: file:///usr/lib/libreoffice/program/../share/extensions/pdfimport/components.rdb: 
duplicate <implementation name="">
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::DeploymentException'

I've tried uninstalling and installing back.

Any ideas?

From OPs comment

I solved it!

I've renamed extensions folder under /usr/lib/libreoffice/share, and it came back. Gotta see if the pdf extensions is still working, but now at least I can run LibreOffice.

See what's in your ./libreoffice/program/share/extensions after uninstalling/reinstalling. Good luck bud!

I don't have any libreoffice folder on my home directory – Pablo Feb 21 '13 at 21:04
It is a hidden folder. Press ctrl + h to show hidden files and folders starting with a dot. – To Do Feb 21 '13 at 21:07
I know, but I don't have a libreoffice folder – Pablo Feb 21 '13 at 21:10
I looked under /usr/share/libreoffice/share/, and there's no extensions folder – Pablo Feb 21 '13 at 21:22

Use Synaptic package manager and search for openoffice-pdfimport and mark it to be removed and apply Libre Office started up immediately! Though in Software Center / History It showed I removed libreoffice-pdfimport(1.0.6+lib03.6.2~rc2-0ubuntu4)
