Re: LibreOffice does not run

Chuck Davis
Anyone else having a problem getting LO to run?

I have all updates applied to 11.4 (including KDE4.6.4).  The splash
screen shows when I try to start office (wrapper), calc or writer and
then disappears into oblivion with nothing running.

This happened after a recent update -- it used to run fine.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled as well.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

Start it from the command line I bet you'll get some kind of error message.

no, my libreOffice runs fine (oS 11.4, K:D:F).

can you figure out what that update was? you can look at what happened in /var/log/zypp/history .

Have you changed to the Plastik style recently.  My openoffice and libre
office installations broke recently and it was to do with the plastik style.  

If your style isnt oxygen then try changing to it and see what happens.  

When you run it from the command line may not see any errors (I didnt) and I
had to start it with strace (mine was due to a missing widget with plastik)
also look for an hs error file that may appear (mine was in my home folder).


Hope it helps
Andrew
