I started getting problems with the latest beta of Libreoffice, so I reverted to the stable version - 4.2.11. However, problems persisted, especially crashing out of the program when trying to save a file. So I completely removed libreoffice, the profile and searched for any file with libreoffice in it - they were all over the place - and did a fresh install from the LO source. Still getting the same crash. Start from terminal and get:

(soffice:3588): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
GConf warning: failure listing pairs in `/desktop/gnome/interface': No D-BUS daemon running
Program starts but on crash shows:

Error creating proxy: The connection is closed (g-io-error-quark, 18)
Using Linux 3.13.5-18.gbb654e2-desktopopenSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64)

Any help gratefully received
