I’m having problems with my brand new Manjaro KDE. First of all, I’m not a big fan of ONLYOFFICE. It’s alright for small projects but as soon as you have medium to large data, it fails to perform. For example, it fails to create a scatter plot with over 4096 data points!
Anyways, I had to install LibreOffice for that specific reason. While it works perfectly fine on my laptop (same Manjaro KDE) but it fails to run on my desktop. No icon is added to the taskbar after I run the package and the only thing shown is the Calc’s intro splash window which will remains on the screen until I click on it (it won’t go away on its own). Once clicked, it will disappear and that would be the last that I see any sign of running Calc.
Here are some more info. I can find the process in the system monitor (named soffice.bin) but all I can do is to end it. Even when I run the calc from terminal, nothing happens.I mean it’s exact same experience and there’s no output printed in the terminal.
So I thought I should uninstall and reinstall the package. And I did but nothing changed. Also, it did not ask me for options what to install alongside of it (as it did the first time I installed it), so I thought it must have used the same settings as before and that’s why I’m facing the same issue. So if I can somehow nuke the current installation and reinstall it then, I might actually have a chance to make it work.
I appreciate it if someone could help me out find a way to run LibreOffice. Thanks.
The LibreOffice icon is added to the taskbar and a window opens. But it crashes right away and the window does not render (it shows the background capture instead). And the only thing I can do is to close the program (Ctrl+C or end the process).
BUT running it in safe mode does work. It opens the program completely but of course, in safe mode. Then I thought, let’s do the “Reset to factory settings”. But selecting that option and checking the both boxes and then clicking the “Apply changes and restart” button, the new window will crash just the same.
If you ask me, LibreOffice files are corrupted and does not run unless in safe mode.
Then I ran the libreoffice in safe mode and selected the “Configure” and checked the box “Disable hardware acceleration” and now, LibreOffice runs without any issue. I guess LibreOffice was conflicting with my GPU (Nvidia).
I’m a beginner
I’m having the same issue since 24hr (last system update 2 days ago)
after running ‘SAL_DISABLEEGL=1 libreoffice’ and libreoffice in safe mode
libreoffice keeps crushing at startup:
SAL_DISABLE_OPENCL=1 libreoffice libreoffice --safe-mode
kf.kio.filewidgets.kfilefiltercombo: Could not find filter "*|All files "
kf.coreaddons: Expected a KPluginFactory, got a KIOPluginForMetaData
Unspecified Application Error
I have had SO many problems and issues with LibreOffice. I used to think it was bc I use the nouveau driver. But that would not explain it crashing on my novel length documents.
As I was already using WINE for PS7, I decided to give the free Atlantis Lite word processor a try. I liked it so well, I paid the $35.00 for the full version. Best $ spent of software in decades. Give it a try.
