    Question LibreOffice 5 freezes system

    LibreOffice 5 freezes system (screen), can not do anything more.

    Don't now why ????

    I can confirm this strange behaviour.
    It was one of main points for return back to 13.2.

    Nothing unexpected here with Gnome, apart from the "upstream - Windowish" look due to libreoffice-gnome not being installed by default because of known desktop integration problems with Gnome.

    Maybe your problem is configuration or video card related?

    Thumbs down Re: LibreOffice 5 freezes system

    tried to go back to version 5.0.2.2, but also then freezes everything.
    I turn plasma 5.
    It is very annoying.

    really have no idea what causes it.

    It might be caused by the GNOME/GTK3 integration.

    Try to uninstall the packages libreoffice-gnome and/or libreoffice-gtk3 if they are installed.

    If that doesn't help, you could also try to remove libreoffice-kde4, but that works fine here.

    Maybe LibreOffice is just triggering a problem elsewhere?
    Assuming that it is a graphics / HW problem, you might try in KDE Plasma5:

    Configure Desktop (System settings) > Hardware > Display and Monitor > Compositor > Rendering backend > OpenGL 3.1 (or one of the other options)


    And in LibreOffice you might try to uncheck Options > LibreOffice > View > Use hardware acceleration
    or > Use anti-aliasing
    or check > Use OpenGL for all rendering

    I've also read that Plasma5 is at odds with the current Nouveau driver for Nvidia chips. What's you graphics / driver?
    I'm using Gnome on Intel HD4600 here (Optimus not engaged by LibreOffice) and apparently everything OK...

    @ wolfi323

    Did try it, but no success.

    @ OrsoBruno

    I have a Intel graphics / driver
    Set OpenGL 3.1 to OpenGL 2.0
    And your tips don't work either.

    Oh, the mouse and keyboard are working, but can not do anything on the screen.

    I switch to GNOME and all is working fine there.....

    Did delete the libreoffice .config file in the home dir, but that did nothing.

    Keep looking

    I have reinstalled 42.1 and so far everything okay with LibreOffice.

    However I have 2 repos not yet added, Framework5 and LibreOffice.
    I'm going to do, 1 for 1.

    After freezing LibreOffice I always obtain error message that
    KDEInit cannot run '/usr/lib64/libexec/kf5/kioexec'
