Thread: libreoffice 5 theme and java

  1. #1

    Default libreoffice 5 theme and java

    I have a fully updated Tumbleweed XFCE.

    When starting soffice from the command line if get the following error:
    Code:
    Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
    Libreoffice then starts, but it is ugly, not picking up the system theme.

    When I install libreoffice-gnome becasue this supposedly allows libreoffice to pick up the them, libreofcie does not start.

    Code:
    Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
    
    ** (soffice:18465): WARNING **: Couldn't register with accessibility bus: 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.
    
    (soffice:18465): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_value_set_boxed: assertion 'G_VALUE_HOLDS_BOXED (value)' failed
    
    (soffice:18465): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gtype.c:4268: type id '0' is invalid
    
    (soffice:18465): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: can't peek value table for type '<invalid>' which is not currently referenced
    Can someone help?

    I am also getting the same error. Libreoffice won't start. Tumbleweed with XFCE desktop. I think things broke around the time the Gnome 3.18 Tumbleweed update came out.

    When libreoffice is started from command line I get:

    Code:
    ** (soffice:4348): WARNING **: Couldn't register with accessibility bus: 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.
    
    (soffice:4348): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_value_set_boxed: assertion 'G_VALUE_HOLDS_BOXED (value)' failed
    
    (soffice:4348): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gtype.c:4268: type id '0' is invalid
    
    (soffice:4348): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: can't peek value table for type '<invalid>' which is not currently referenced

    Dmesg shows the following error:

    Code:
    soffice.bin[4067]: segfault at 30 ip 00007f1045882177 sp 00007ffee06a0910 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.1800.1[7f10455cf000+70a000]

    Update..
    Did a bit of web searching on this and it looks like this is a possible regression in Gnome 3.18.1 related to using an external theme (which I am using) in Libreoffice.
    There is an Arch Bug and a I think a Gnome Bug.

    Is there a way to stop using an external theme in Libreoffice from the command line?

    Edit: Never mind. Silly me. I just uninstalled libreoffice-gnome.

    I just did a massive update (several hundred packages). I had earlier uninstalled libreoffice-gnome. Libreoffice updated, and for some reason, libreoffice-gnome re-installed and Libreoffice is now picking up themes in XFCE dsektop.

    Yay :-)
