today I installed Linux Mint 14 on my laptop HP 620 and at first glance it worked fine. But now I ran into a problem I'm not able to solve. When I try to open an office document from our server share Libreoffice freezes completely. So I looked through this forum and found some "freezing" posts but none of the same topic. I also tried to re-install Libreoffice (3.6) and install version 4.0.1, but both with no success. When I copy the documents from the share on my notebook I can open it without problems.
I also have a Samsung netbook with nearly the same software configuration. On this machine I can do anything I like with the documents. So what am I doing wrong? And please be patient. I'm not that familiar with Linux yet (but I'm working on it ).
I'd appreciate if someone could help me.
Edit: OK, I found out that not only Libreoffice seems to have this problem. I also tried Gimp and this application also crashes after opening a image from the network share. So it seems that there is something wrong with my network connection or the Linux installation.
