Greetings from Oz (literal and metaphorical)
I just tried to use the fix specified here and failed - don't have these options.

I don't have Adobe.
I have tried to download it, but find that the auto download from the Repository is now failing also.
(Image attached)
I have the odd situation that OpenOffice shows as installed, even allows to specify Writer for PDFs but only opens them in Draw.

I would even like to update the UberStudent but am afraid of another wipeout. :oops:
I am reduced to using KeepNote which is hardly satisfactory for my major text writing/compilation needs.

Also cannot attach an image of the fault here for some other reason ( Screenshot - 08212014 - 08:48:00 AM.png is an invalid filename).

so apologies - have simply included it in the body.

As usual, ANY help appreciated.

Jack

Since the raring base upon which UberStudent 3.0 is built is no longer supported by Ubuntu, you're going to increasingly run in to issues using it as time goes by. Lacking that larger support base, I cannot really much support it any longer, either. I wish the situation were different. :|

If you're feeling a lack of confidence to independently take the steps needed to update to UberStudent 4.0, I'd strongly encourage you to connect with a Linux User's Group (LUG) in your particular region of Oz. You'll probably have a super great time doing so, besides! :)
