    Question LibreOffice crashes when saving

    I was happily using LibreOffice 5 (specifically Writer 5.0.1.2.0) on my openSUSE Gnome Tumbleweed computer when I thought I better save it before anything happens to all of my work. So I hit Cntl + S and LibreOffice closed without saving!

    Thankfully most of my work is recoverable but it was consistent that each time I try to save (through the menu or Cntl + S) the application would close.

    Running LibreOffice from the terminal I had the following output
    Code:
    drew@linux-31jo:~> libreoffice
    
    (soffice:3731): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: gsignal.c:3484: signal name 'selection_changed' is invalid for instance '0x24c6020' of type 'OOoAtkObjCompTxt'

    I'm using 5.0.3.1 and not finding any trouble. However, I recall seeing
    a thread on this a few days ago but a search here and on the LO
    newsgroup failed to reveal anything. Sorry.

    Libreoffice 5.0 crashes on saving files: LO5 has a new GTK3 integration
    module, which is, sadly, not up to the standards yet. But it was
    realized too late. The next LO5 package will have the GTK3 variant
    split in a separate package, so that the devs can work with it and
    debug it. Until then, if you suffer from LO5 crashes, the easiest way
    is to delete the file
    /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/libvclplug_gtk3lo.so
    (you could also uninstall libreoffice-gnome, but then LO will look
    really bad)

    IIRC from the FB or G+ pages, removing libreoffice-gnome stops libreoffice from crashing whilst saving docs.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    And confirming that removing /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/libvclplug_gtk3lo.so as suggested by Dimstar fixes the problem
    while apparently keeping Gnome integration.

    Just do:

    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/libvclplug_gtk3lo.so
