AlienBobs LibreOffice 3.3.1 does not start
 
Hi,

I downloaded AlienBobs LibreOffice 3.3.1 package (http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/libr...-3-1-packages/). I installed it without any problems.
But when I try to start it, the splash screen shows for a moment and then disappears.

When I strace /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/swriter I get this:
Code:

[…lots of output…]
read(255, "trap 'kill -9 $!' TERM\nwait $!\nsd"..., 5125) = 295
rt_sigaction(SIGTERM, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGTERM, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGTERM, {0x1, [], 0}, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGTERM, {0x80972d0, [], 0}, {0x1, [], 0}, 8) = 0

rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigaction(SIGINT, {0x8082eb0, [], 0}, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, 8) = 0
waitpid(-1, [{WIFEXITED(s) && WEXITSTATUS(s) == 0}], 0) = 31296
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0

sigreturn()                            = ? (mask now [])
rt_sigaction(SIGINT, {SIG_DFL, [], 0}, {0x8082eb0, [], 0}, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, [CHLD], [], 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK, NULL, [], 8)  = 0
rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, [], NULL, 8) = 0
exit_group(0)

On my notebook (which unfortunately is broken) the program ran fine.


Any ideas what could cause this problem? JRE is installed.

Thanks

Try starting it a second (or a third) time. It will suddenly start working, at least that is what happens here. I guess it has something to do with what you (do not) have in the application's cache directory (in ~/.ooo3 or ~/.libreoffice) until you start it more than once.

Did you have the ol OpenOffice.org installed before? That gave me a bit of trouble, too.

Thanks for the answer.

Yes, I had installed OOo in this machine before. I also deleted ~/.ooo3 and ~/.libreoffice.

OK, no success with re-running. I'll retry it tomorrow with a new Linux user account. Perhaps that will work; if not I'll try the official package and I might see where the problem is.

Thanks.

Try something else than "soffice". For instance, try "lowriter".

OK, with "lowriter" it didn't work either. I'll try to use the rpm package from LibreOffice.

edit1:
Now I have installed LibreOffice 3.3.2 with a customized SlackBuild of LibreOffice from SlackBuilds.
Now it works.. Hmm.
