I use Lubuntu 16.04 and Libre Office Version:

When I work on a text document and then save and close it, libre office shows the main screen where I can choose between different documents and create a new one.

I don't want that.

When closing a document I want the whole application to close.

How can I set this up?

EDIT: I open up the document by clicking on it. LXSession default for 'document' is already 'Libre Office Writer'. It seems that LXSession default opens up Libre Office as a whole instead of just the writer.

    Open LO Writer directly instead of opening the "loader" (or whatever it is called).

  • You are right. It works the way you suggest. But I open the document via clicking on it, not via opening up the writer and then opening a document from within the writer. In 'LXSession configuration' under 'launching applications' I have 'Libre Office Writer' as default. So it seems to be a problem with the default settings.

    @DavidFoerster Huh?!? How could I do that? What I had to say is there, that's it, nothing else to add and I don't even know the correct name of the "thing". And this is so obvious...

I solved (sort of) this very same issue just by unticking the 'LibreOffice' menu item from Lubuntu's Main Menu dialog.

Hope this helps. (This should be a comment, but I'm not allowed by my reputation)
