Re: Install Libre Office 6.1 ???

Hi
Welcome to MX, to upgrade to 6.1.5 open the MX Package installer and select Debian Backports, enter in the search box Libreoffice and then tick install.
You may want to check that all the files you need are selected i.e. Language pack.

Re: Cannot Change MX18 splash screen.

Next time I updated grub, and it started to show, then got overwritten by Boot messages about finding usb or something.

As I said above NVidia chips seem sometimes to have problems. I get what you get on my production machine.
Is there any resolution to this other than getting a new card as I have not experienced any problems with nvidia cards until MX?

MX is already controlling grub but I have followed your suggestion. Terminal reported no errors but the splash screen is the same as previous. I have changed the splash screen selection to see what happens.
