Thread: Major Calc Problem

  1. #1

    Default Major Calc Problem

    With the latest LibreOffice update I'm finding that selecting and dragging a group of cells (cell 50 rows by 3 columns for example) cause Calc to crash (window disappears, no error box).

    Anyone else observed this?

    Happens every time for me. With new spreadsheets or old, simple or complex.

    Yes, I observe the same defective behaviour ... the number of cells being dragged doesn't really matter though -- I've tripped it with one cell, a few cells, and many cells. Frustrating

    Glad it isn't just me. I see it was reported to LibreOffice for 3.4.3 on the 10th https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42800 and a similar bug for 3.4.2 (my version on openSUSE 11.4) https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=41812

    So looks like we aren't the only ones. Doesn't help us much and it is a serious bug to get through in a point release.

    Can you specify which version you're running? There may be people
    running a version in factory that's later than what you're running, or
    you may perhaps have installed the version in factory and that's not what
    someone who's using the standard repos would necessarily be running.

    Specific version numbers are best to avoid any confusion.

    This does not happen with LibreOffice 3.4.4 installed from the Libreoffice website under 11.4.
    Main box: OpenSuse 12.3)/KDE 4.10 64bit
    Older Box: OpenSuse 12.2/KDE 4.8.5 64bit (my mediabox)
    Laptop: Debian Wheezy/KDE 4.8.4 64bit

    Ah, I see that was released a couple of days ago. Hopefully, as it is a minor point release openSUSE will package it as an 11.4 update.

    I must say, that unfortunately, more often than not, additional bugs are introduced by the OpenSuse developers when packaging the Office applications for OpenSuse. (but maybe it's also my fault using KDE 4.7).
    I therefore, always stick with the plain vanilla versions provided by LibreOffice. This also enables me to use the latest stable 3.3. version (currently 3.3.4) which still is a bit more stable than 3.4.4 (there is one particular pivot table/datapilot bug in 3.4 that bothers me, but has been marked as solved for 3.4.5 and 3.5).
    For those sticking with the OpenSuse repos however, the LibreOffice stable repos are ubdated regularly, so you should expect an update any time....

    The problem lies with the libreoffice-kde integration package. If you remove it the problems disappear, but you get the standard 90's-like interface. Perhaps fiddling with the gtk style might help a bit.
