    Default Libreoffice don't start

    Hi all,
    I use Libreoffice Factory repository, and I have installed 4.3 version. For some week I can't start libreoffice. I get the following message in terminal:
    Code:
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
      what():  Provided a recursive symlink to a icon theme directory that could not be resolved
    Could you tell me where is the problem, or with which repository I can install back the 4.2 version?

    Thanks

    LibreOffice 4.2 for openSUSE 13.1:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/LibreOffice:/4.2/openSUSE_13.1/
    Adjust repository location accordingly if you are using 12.3

    Note that using beta versions from Factory repos especially for productivity software like this is just.. a bad idea.

    I encountered the same error message.

    The short answer: install all the libreoffice-icon-theme-* packages (except the source package).

    A longer answer: In my case, in /usr/lib64/libreoffice/share/config/ there was an unresolved symbolic link.

    The explorer's answer: First, I did
    Code:
    strace -f oowriter 2> ~/oowriter.strace
    Then, I did a less on ~/oowriter.strace, searched for "recursive symlink," and searched back a few lines for the failing system call. This told me Libreoffice was looking for /usr/lib64/libreoffice/share/config/images_hicontrast.zip. I did an ls -l in that directory, found a symbolic link which resolved, and did
    Code:
    rpm -qf /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/images_oxygen.zip
    which showed the package containing a similar file. From there, a
    Code:
    zypper se libreoffice-icon-theme
    showed the packages which were missing.

    On my 13.1, x86_64 system after installing from http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/ I get these errors when I try to start libreoffice:

    Code:
    $libreoffice
    /usr/bin/X11/libreoffice: line 49: cd: ../lib64/libreoffice/program: No such file or directory
    /usr/bin/X11/libreoffice: line 156: /usr/bin/X11/oosplash: No such file or directory
    I see that you have recommended using the 4.2 repository rather than the Stable one. What, then is the Stable repository for?

    In any case, I deleted the packages with YaST, added the http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/ repository, disabled the http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/ repository, and reinstalled the LibreOffice packages; but I get the same results (except the line#s are different):

    Code:
    $libreoffice base
    /usr/bin/X11/libreoffice: line 54: cd: ../lib64/libreoffice/program: No such file or directory
    /usr/bin/X11/libreoffice: line 164: /usr/bin/X11/oosplash: No such file or directory
