    This crash should also be fixed with the latest gtk2-theme-oxygen from KDE:Extra.

    Or use the KDE integration, i.e. make sure libreoffice-kde4 is installed and "ibus" IS NOT (ibus forces libreoffice to use the GNOME integration even on KDE)

    Hi, I'm an experienced Linux user, but very new to OpenSuse. I am liking my experience so far but was a little stumped by this LibreOffice export to PDF crashes. The same version of LibreOffce works fine on Ubuntu (Gnome-shell).

    Thanks Lenwolf, this kind of repaired it for me (both under KDE and Gnome-shell).

    But my question is: What's the long term solution to this? Is a patch for this bug expected soon? I'm mainly a gnome-shell user and was wondering if it would work under Gnome-shell too? (Lenwolf's advice works).

    Thanks.

    The patch was submitted to the Maintenance process yesterday, so if all goes well an official update should be released some time next week.

    I don't quite understand that question.

    It crashes in GNOME as well for you?
    What theme are you using?

    The only crash I am aware of was a bug in the Gtk2-oxygen theme (fixed already as mentioned), but that shouldn't be used by default in GNOME. (it's KDE's default theme ported to GTK to provide a uniform look in KDE)

    Yes it crashes in GNOME as well for me. I'm using the default theme in GNOME. Basically I have the same behaviour/crash in GNOME as well as KDE. So sounds to me like more than just a KDE theme problem. Anyone else sees this crash in GNOME?

    Thank you again for your reply.

    Well, as I wrote in the other thread already, LibreOffice with the GNOME integration uses Gtk2.

    GNOME3 is Gtk3-based, so changing the theme in GNOME might not affect LO. I'm not sure though how Gtk2 is handled in GNOME.

    So it can be in fact just the gtk2-oxygen problem (even in GNOME), which should be fixed with the packages in KDE:Extra, and soon to be released as standard update hopefully.

    Thanks again! your instructions were perfect!

  7. Default Re: Libre Office > Export to PDF

    EDIT: And guess what... updating gtk2-theme/engine-oxygen to the KDE:extra is the only thing I did, and LO has stopped crashing even in GNOME. You must be right in pointing out that LO still uses gtk-2 in GNOME. In KDE I changed the gtk-2 theme and that reflects in GNOME (confirmation).

    PS: Am not posting this again on the other thread.

    Thanks wolfi323!

    Of course, if "libreoffice-gnome" is installed.

    But in your case it even seems to use Gtk2 (i.e. use the GNOME-integration) in KDE.
    You might want to use the KDE integration there instead.
    To do this, make sure "libreoffice-kde4" is installed, and uninstall "ibus" as that forces LO to use the GNOME-integration even in KDE.
    FYI, "ibus" is an input method framework, mostly needed for typing Asian characters. If you don't want/need to do that, you won't miss it...
    (but on GNOME it is installed by default)

    FYI: Fixed packages have been released as official update for 13.1 today.
