Thread: Libre office crashes when opening document

    Default Re: Libre office crashes when opening document

    I was using a simple spreadsheet, where I researched PC parts, that I created a month ago, containing only text and simple sum formulas. I was using default fonts. Also I then test created some writer documents using default fonts (New file, press keys, save, close Writer, open).

    This seems strange to me as well. Was wondering if I could trace what it is libreoffice doing in mozilla profile.

    I also did dup from 42.2 couple of months ago but that was before I successfully created saved and reopened the spreadsheets. Had no problems after upgrading from 42.2.

    If I create a new user and run from there, it will launch without a problem, so it is something to do with config.

    Yes; Catch-22 with UNIX® GUIs in general, has been (since early UNIX® GUI days), and remains (possibly for ever), the issue of system upgrades and user configurations.

    The only viable solution for about 90 % of the UNIX® user community is, for the concerned (GUI) user to logout and then to delete the user's GUI configuration from a TTY (CLI) or SSH CLI session. The user with the misbehaving GUI then logs back in, sets up the GUI preferences again and, continues working.

    I see in ~/config/libreoffice/4/user/registrymodifications.xcu some links to mozilla folders, as I opened documents from ///temp (apparently directly from firefox) with Libreoffice.

    Maybe you edited Firefox config files with Libreoffice in the past?

    The remaining references to "mozilla" I can find in Libreoffice are references to "Mozilla Public License, v. 2.0" in the headers of files...
    Kind regards

    mv ~/.config/libreoffice ~/.config/libreoffice_old

    Libreoffice now opens.

    I had the exact same issue after installing opensuse 42.3. LibreOffice 5.3 would hang indefinitely.
    renaming ~/.config/libreoffice with ~/.config/libreoffice_old as suggested by os_brendan did the job for me.
    thanks.
