Uninstalling LO 4.3.0.4 from Ubuntu 14.04

I installed 4.3.0.4 from the deb packages. I now wish to uninstall and
revert to the official Ubuntu-supplied version.
Using either

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice

or

sudo dpkg -P libreoffice

I get the dreaded
dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove libreoffice which isn't installed

How can I uninstall 4.3.0.4?

Cheers

Gordon

Re: Uninstalling LO 4.3.0.4 from Ubuntu 14.04

Hi All,

I've always done the following to cleanly remove the Repository version and
install the Document Foundation Version as per:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/180403/how-to-uninstall-libreoffice

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoremove

Re: Uninstalling LO 4.3.0.4 from Ubuntu 14.04

Hi :)
Yejh, i think he was just missing the * off the end of the command-line
instruction.  It is easily missed but changes sooo much!!

sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*

is correct.  When i clean and purge i tend to go a bit over-board and tend
to do

sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get autoclean
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get remove

Note that each time it's just an up-arrow to get the previous command back
and then a few deletes with maybe a
ctrl arrow-key
to skip back to the start of the word.  However i suspect i only need 2/4
as you have done or maybe not even that much.
Regards from
Tom :)
