LibreOffice doesn't open

I'm on LXLE 16.04.4 and have run LibreOffice successfully for sometime. However I installed some extensions from the LibreOffice Extensions website after installing an English Dictionary and when I attempted to reopen LO, it opened the splashscreen, bar filled up and it disappeared. Refuses to open.

Terminal result of running libreoffice --writer gives two error messages GTK-message: Failed to load module "gail" GTK-message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"

Can't find any answers to this question. Has anyone go any ideas?

Try to reset your user profile. If you have trouble accessing the "safe mode", simply delete/rename the folder


Then, restart the software
