Libreoffice does not appear

Libreoffice does not appear

Even though it is installed, the libreoffice application does not appear in the work area or in the installed applications. In order to use it, it is necessary to open the program center, look for the application in the installed tab and open it from there to be able to use it; how can I fix this error?

I attach the corresponding diagnosis.

I have uninstalled libreoffice with the idea that by reinstalling it, the problem of it not appearing in the work area would be resolved, but after uninstalling it and trying to install it again, an error message appeared (I attach the image).

Then I tried to install with the command install flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice but this is what appeared:

james@janad:~$ flatpak install flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice

Then I thought I should reinstall with the command flatpak install --reinstall flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice.Locale, but this is what appeared:

What can I do to get it installed and working again?

I’m pretty sure the initial problem is the same problem with Wayland and X11. I think the fix I suggested there should help.

However, the No such metadata object issue is different. Please run sudo flatpak repair from a terminal. Hopefully that fixes that problem.

The problem was solved; The application could be installed and the icons are in the work area.

That’s good. I still don’t understand why you can’t run Wayland in the normal way, but I don’t think it’s a problem with Libreoffice.

I think the problem with libreoffice was some kind of conflict in the repositories, I’m not a programmer, it’s just an assumption due to the information I’ve been recording, but now it’s working normally.
