Calligra Sheets hangs on trying to open spreadsheet


I opened Calligra Sheets and started a spreadsheet and then saved it. Now it won't open it. Any help would be very much appreciated. I have pasted the readout from Bash below:


When I tried to submit this post with the full bash output I got: "The following errors occurred with our submission: You have included 22 images in your message. You are limited to using 6 images so please go back and correct the problem and then continue again. Images include use of smilies, the BB code [img] tag and HTML <img> tags. The use of these is all subject to them being enabled by the administrator."

So, I have just pasted the part of the bash output that looks to me as if it could be the problem:

sheets(8079)/kdeui (KAction) KActionCollection::setComponentData: this does not work on a KActionCollection containing actions!

I have just reinstalled slackware and after creating a non-root user the first thing I did was open Calligra and create a short spreadsheet and save it. Now I can open it from the command line and from the KDE applications GUI but when I click on the spreadsheet document in the Dolphin file manager it tries to open but fails. I get a KDE crash handler window saying Calligra closed unexpectedly.

This means I can use the program so I will do that.

Calligra Sheets hangs on trying to open spreadsheet

I used to use that and really liked it but I downloaded it from slackbuilds.org and after that the computer kept running out of memory. That is why I reloaded Slackware and gave Calligra another try.

I am unable to duplicated this problem.

I was able to open an existing LibreOffice spreadsheet in Calligra without incident on Mint 17. (I am currently on the road.)

I created a test spreadsheet in *.ods format in Calligra, saved it, and was able to open it without incident from within Calligra Sheets, from the right-click menu in my file manager, and from the command line.

Alien Bob is kind enough to provide Slackware packages of LibreOffice,

Gnumeric is another option, which is also available on SBo.

I don't think your input there really warranted resurrecting the thread
