Hi, I am using PClinux and after i installed Libre Office for the first time everything seemed to work fine but now when i launch any Libre Office application i get the message "cannot open file:///etc/opt/ure/types.rdb: 13" and the application is not launching at all, i have tried several things from reinstalling to change users. I tried with the root user and libre office started ok but when i switch to any other user it comes the same message again, its PCLinux 2012 and libre office 3.6.4, i installed libre office using the lomanager i uninstalled bot several times and same problem, any ideas?
LibreOffice 3.6 - Fatal Error
The program cannot be started.
The service manager is not available.
("cannot open file:///etc/opt/ure/types.rdb: 13")
Start setup application to repair the installation from CD, or the folder containing the installation packages.
thanks camorri, i located the file in the path you said with the diference that mine is libreoffice3.6 instead of openoffice, besides i didnt mencioned before but i don't have anything in the path /etc/opt, the permissions for the file are -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 838656 Nov 28 16:50 types.rdb in the path /opt/libreoffice3.6/ure/share/misc. i even tried copying that file to the path /etc/opt/ure but the error is still showing, if this can't be solved is there anyway to install openoffice instead?
Actually i did a research before installing libreoffice and yes i installed java before installing lomanager and libreoffice, but i don't think it's a problem related to libraries or so, mostly seems like a problem with permissions some where, i even created a new user and reinstalled the suite with the same problem again, i think the only way to solve it is to reinstall the whole system and i'm not willing to do so by now so i reached to a parcial solution wich is, ha, you wont believe it, i edited the kde menus and changed to run as another user, in this case root, wich is the only user for whom the office apps works, so i have to type the root password every time i launch an office app, this is not so elegant but this is what i have by now, thank you both ayway cam... and knul....
