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).
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).
I don't quite understand that question.I'm mainly a gnome-shell user and was wondering if it would work under Gnome-shell too? (Lenwolf's advice works).
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)
Thank you again for your reply.
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!
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.
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)
Thanks again very much for the tips!
