Error saving the document Untitled 1 Object not accessible


It seems like the issue has something to do with user account rights. Sometimes even if your account has administrative privileges or you are using an administrator account, you may still encounter this error. In Microsoft Windows Vista and later, running the application as administrator normally solves the problem. But since you are using a different operating system, running it as administrator may be different.

In Linux Ubuntu, the equivalent of running an application as administrator in Microsoft Windows is running it as Root or as Root user. In Linux Ubuntu, the operating system runs the desktop as a regular user account and so are all the applications installed on the computer. Now, since your program needs full user permission, you need to open it as root.

When opening a program as root, the command is normally preceded by “sudo” like for example “sudo gedit filename.txt”. Aside from using “sudo” to run the program as root, there is another way of using the root access which uses a graphical display. The graphical alternative of running “sudo” is using the command “gksu”.

You can quickly and easily open any program as root by preceding the command with “gksu” like for example “gksu xterm”. So, to fix the problem, run LibreOffice 3.6 as root using “sudo” or “gksu” and you should be able to save the file again.
