I have removed libreoffice 4.2 from my ubuntu 14.04 machine by using:
sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*
And then I have installed libreoffice 5.0 extracting files from the downloaded package, and using the following command in the DEB folder
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
I can open openoffice 5.0 aplications using the terminal, but they do not appear in the unity dash.Even worst, the applications are not set as default to open office documents.
How can I fix this?
