    Default Libreoffice not working

    A strange problem popped up today. Whenever I try to open a previously saved document with LibreOffice Writer or Calc the result is a blank page. This happens for all document formats: docx, odt, xlsx, etc. I can open the same document with the relevant Calligra application,Calligra Sheets or Calligra Words, for example, but I much prefer to use LibreOffice. And when I try to create a new document with LibreOffice Writer a black page opens up: https://photos.app.goo.gl/FoJG8FZCc1tkcvDC9

    I have no idea what's going on. Maybe I should un-install and then re-insall OpenOffice?

    Phew, managed to solve the problem. Apparently something was corrupted in my /home/.config/libreoffice folder. So I renamed the folder. When I rebooted LibreOffice worked normally again and the .config/libreoffice folder was re-created automatically.
