Libreoffice runs fine when logged as root.
When I log in as other user with admin rights, "application error" is generated (run from terminal) and initial startup window vanish. No error/warninig is logged in any file in /var/log.
My laptop has an Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 and I get this crash. Adding this to my .bash_profile fixed the issue for me:

Code:
export MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=i965
You can also add this somewhere in /etc/profile.d for all users. Hopefully this will work for you.

My laptop has an Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530 and also got that "Application Error" thing. I solved my problem either by setting "MESA_LOADER_DRIVER_OVERRIDE=i965" like others have pointed out, or by disabling the usage of OpenCL (Tools -> Options... -> OpenCL -> Uncheck "Allow use of OpenCL").

I found out this in the Arch Wiki, which indicates that I need to install an OpenCL runtime for Intel HD Graphics since LibreOffice runs perfectly fine with OpenCL disabled. I haven't tried it though since I mostly use LibreOffice for editing simple documents so disabling OpenCL is already good enough for me (for now).

I'm still on 14.2 and compile LibreOffice 6.2.8 (en-GB) using Christoph Willing's work from SlackBuilds.org.

The only problem I ever have is with Thesaurus. It's never there it's button in menu bar Tools is greyed out.

In the compile I configure with --with-system-mythes
and the compile log reports

Quote:
checking for thesaurus directory... file:///usr/share/mythes
On my system /usr/share/mythes doesn't exist. I would have thought that this would have been supplied by the package mythes, but all that seems to have installed is

Quote:
PACKAGE NAME: mythes-1.2.4-x86_64-1_20210506143659_SBo

UNCOMPRESSED PACKAGE SIZE: 70K
PACKAGE LOCATION: /tmp/mythes-1.2.4-x86_64-1_20210506143659_SBo.tgz
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
mythes: mythes (simple thesaurus)
mythes:
mythes: MyThes is a simple thesaurus that uses a structured text data file
mythes: and an index file with binary search to lookup words and phrases and
mythes: return information on part of speech, meanings, and synonyms.

So I head off to Apache OpenOffice and do a search
which yesterday gave me various extensions including dict-en-20210501.oxt which I downloaded and extended.

Thesaurus works again.

My question is that why isn't Thesaurus working out of the box? What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.
Any of those options work, and also any of SAL_DISABLE_OPENCL=1 and/or SAL_DISABLEGL=1

In Tools->Options->Language Settings->Writing Aids, click on the link near the bottom "Get more dictionaries online ...". After waiting for the resulting box to become populated, select and install a dictionary e.g. "English Dictionaries" (it takes a few moments), then Close and Apply. The Thesaurus option should now be available from the Tools menu.

I'm not sure how to make that happen automatically when installing LibreOffice itself though.

Question:


Doesn't it seem very strange to anyone that an application like Libreoffice worries about things like graphic acceleration or calculation with graphics cards (OpenCL)?
