Thank you, It successfully installed at my HP Chromebook 11 G8
Please help, all process IS donne and I Think the software is installes but the apps do not appear on the menu
That’s great, now search the app in the Linux folder that appears in the menu drawer.
Everything is installed, but Openoffice will not open. It briefly flashes on my screen, and the icon with a ‘in process’ circle appears with the icons at the bottom of the screen, but it never opens. 🙁
Which version you installed Openoffice and chromebook version matters too.
