In order to get rid of some persistent problem, I have decided to completely remove libreoffice preferences from my machine and then recreate it. I know that user preferences are in this (
.config/libreoffice/3/user/) directory, as indicated here, https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile.
However, closing LO, completely removing the directory using the following command,
rm -rvf .config/libreoffice
and then rebooting my machine, does not seem to reset my user profile. My recent files including all other settings are there (and the problem persists).
I am perplexed.
I am using LibreOffice 188.8.131.52, Build ID: 350m1(Build:2) in Ubuntu 12.04 machine. The installation is regularly updated.
Your input and hints will be appreciated.
