I use open office as my only word processor. I wanted to remove the mendeley open office plug in because it did not work. Here are the steps I used because I could not uninstall either throughh Mendeley or through the usual open office extension manager.
- go to your home folder. Open .openoffice.org2. This can be done in nautilus just fine. To view hidden folders and files (those starting with ‘.’), just hit Control-h.
- Go into the ‘user’ folder.
- Delete or rename the ‘uno_packages’ folder. I renamed it, personally, so I could put it back if needed.
- Start OpenOffice. It will be just like new.
