The default version of LO in Linux Mint 18 is Version: 18.104.22.168 Build ID: 1:5.1.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~xenial3. I tried to download and install version 6 using dpkg -i *.deb. However, it will not start and get the following message in the command line:
/usr/bin/libreoffice6.0: 174: exec: /opt/libreoffice6.0/program/oosplash: not found
Foolishly, I had uninstalled the 5.1 version prior to trying the new version. But even after re-installing the old version the 6 branch does not initiate.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
