Running OK for me on Xubuntu 18.04.1; I have gnome installed, also libgtk2 and libgtk3.

Do you know how to install libraries for libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 and libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 .
If you know please tell me.

I normally install Synaptic, then using it install gnome and gtk. But be aware, these may break your system - do a little googling on libgtk and ubuntu to find out what to do.

1) Don't run it as root
2)The correct file to run is soffice

Try that and see what happens.

in a terminal, run "openoffice4" (no quotes, case as I have entered) and report error messages.

How did you install Apache OpenOffice?

What's wrong with LibreOffice? it is already installed on your computer and it is the new OpenOffice.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.

These libraries are not installed. how to install the above libraries.

I tried the ldd command on Ubuntu Mate 18.10 and Ubuntu 18.10. The libraries were not missing in either distro. Google searching leads me to believe that they should be in the libgtk2 package. Has that package been removed from your system?

As a guess - are you using the X11 windows system?

Previously I had installed Ubuntu 18.10 Beta version which was not supporting open office.
Now i installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Now open office is opened.
./soffice successfully opens.

AOO doesn't seem to recognize openjdk-11 which is installed by Ubuntu 18.10. If you need Java, install openjdk-8.

Do you have LibreOffice installed? I have found that LibreOffice and AOO do not play well together though I, at least, could get AOO to open. It just crashed all the time.

If LO is installed try:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt purge libreoffice*

and install OpenOffice 4.1.5.

Note: Getting rid of LO can be difficult. You may want to run the purge command more than once.

If purging LibreOffice using code given above by jrkrideau, do not omit the final *

I tried the following below commands for installing openjdk-8 for ubuntu 18.04

sudo apt --fix-broken install
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk

Now openoffice is opening the following error "javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!" .

I have just checked on my computer running Xubuntu 18.04.1. I have openjdk-8-jre installed. It is my memory that I restarted the computer after installing Java, so that all applications could find it.
