http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey Everybody, I have a 2 computers, a laptop and a desktop, both Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. A couple weeks back, I tried to open up a word document on the desktop, and it asked me what program I wanted to use, and I looked for OpenOffice and it wasn't there. So I went into the main menu and all my OpenOffice programs were gone! Then I went to the software center, and looked for OpenOffice and it was not installed!!
