You can get back the Ubuntu desktop with sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop From thereon it should be easy to re-install all the other lost packages. If you're looking for a list of all the (accidentally) uninstalled packages, you can find them in /var/log/apt/history.log.

We changed the format of snaps in 16.04, to a newer, more compact and more secure format. We have to add back delta updates in the new format, it will come soon. Also, we will add back auto-gardening so that old snap will be removed automatically in future, but you can safely delete it now yourself.

You XDG documents folders are automatically bind-mounted into the Libertine container. In other words, if you save a LibreOffice document in your Documents folder, it's saved to /home/phablet/Documents. The XDG documents folders include Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos.

Here are a few more details about the "non-GUI" method. You can use this method not only to convert ODT files to PDF. It will also work for MS Word DOCX files (it will work as well as LibreOffice is able to handle the particular ODT), and, in general all file types which LibreOffice can open. I do not think that there is a binary named libreoffice as one ...

I don't think that there's a way to do this, but you can set your measurements to mm/cm/inches or others and base your formatting around that. You can add a vertical ruler by enabling it: settings: -> tools -> options -> LibreOffice Writer -> View -> Vertical ruler

To avoid slow User Interface update, a workaround is to: Remove packages: libreoffice-gnome and libreoffice-gtk and libreoffice-gtk3 Restart (Close and Open) LibreOffice After this, LibreOffice User Interface is being updated fast.

This OMG! Ubuntu article says delta: Newer Apps, Larger One side-effect of the ‘bundle’ approach is, naturally, a larger initial package size. But Snaps are clever; transactional and delta updates allows devs to only upgrade the parts that need updating, be it a single lib, an app icon, or the entire freaking thing. The documentation on ...

I know you made the changes in Ubuntu, but did you set it in Libre office? Tools, options, language settings, languages. I know it should seem that you should not have to do this, and maybe it is a bug in Libre Office, but I have found a lot of the time that for some reason a lot of open source software has their own setting for things like this.

Though in previous versions doing as the other answers said would have worked (going View > Scrollbars > Vertical Scroll bar), in the version in Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 with GNOME 3.20 there is a bug meaning that whatever one does the scroll bars do not show. Remove the libreoffice-gtk3 as a temporary workaround: sudo apt-get remove libreoffice-gtk3 This ...

Not currently. As snap packages will be containerized in the end, it is unlikely to do in the future -- at least not in this simple a way. We will need a solution for profile migrations and not reinstalling extensions for each update. After all snap will enable up- and downgrading and parallel installations of different version of a software.

It's possible we are hit by Bug 91533 - Tooltips are truncated if OS default font is size 12.

Edit: Just checked, this works and file permissions are ...

On further investigation, several hints led me to a proposed solution1: Brother provides a fax modem driver (brfaxmodem-1.1.3-1.i386.deb) which you can download from their support site (link is for MFC9120CN). Their instructions then say: have your printer connected via USB install the driver: sudo dpkg -i brfaxmodem-1.1.3-1.i386.deb2 install the efax ...

I just saved a test document in LibreOffice to take a look at this. I tried to save it in phablet but via FileManager I found it in /home/phablet/.local/share/libertine-container/user-data/puritine I guess I can see the logic of that for security but it isn't great for users in cases like this. I can't see an easy way to break out of the libertine jail and ...

Without seeing a screenshot this is my best guess. May be you have your current settings like the one below in your Settings -> Appearance -> Behavior: This will always show the Menus (like File, Edit, View, etc. Change the settings to something like: So that you can see the window title.
