Can't launch LibreOffice 4.4 on Linux Mint 17

Uninstalled LibreOffice 4.2 from a new install of Mint 17 Cinnamon, downloaded the LibreOffice 4.4 tar files and extracted them all into a folder on the desktop, then installed, as per the README, from a terminal window in that folder with

sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Now, its icons appear in the Cinnamon menu, but when I try to start any of them, I get

LibreOffice 4.4 - Fatal Error
The application cannot be started.
User application could not be completed.

What more information would be useful, and where do I go from here? TY.
