fractions not showing correctly

Asked by Ralph on 2012-06-29

specificly, when entering 3/32 into spreadsheet it shows a "0" in its place. Other fractions show up as entered. Both double and single place fractions (11/32) show up fine in other cells. In format cells I did pick fractions under category and set to the double place or second choice..

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | egrep 'libre|open' | grep office

Thanks

Maverick is no longer supported in any way. I suggest you remove the Maveric partitions and clean install Precise. Not only is it the latest stable Ubuntu release but it is also LTS, giving support all the way to 2017.

Can you help with this problem?
