libreoffice writer crashes on selecting bibliography database

Asked by Krishnendu Sarkar on 2011-09-02

I never before tried to access the bibliography database in libreoffice writer. then I installed "bibus" from software centre. it integrates with the libreoffice to insert citation and references.

After this I tried to access the bibligraphy database from tools->bibliography database in libreoffice writer. everytime I select the option the libreoffice writer shuts down and I need to again start the programme.

I do not know whether it is due the installation of "bibus", so i removed the package "bibus" and again tried to open bibliography database. it again crashed.

This error occurs because "LibreOffice Base" is not installed on your system.

Fix: From "Applications" on the menu bar, go down to "Ubuntu Software Centre", and click on the "Office" icon. Scroll down to "LibreOffice Base" and install.

Also, if the letter creation "Wizard" does not work, from the "System Menu", go down to "Administration", and choose "Synaptic Package Manager". Type "jre" into the search box, and install "default-jre". Then install "libreoffice-java-common" in the same way.

Thank u very much. it solved my problem.
