MATE crashes upon launching LibreOffice Calc

Post by jeenuv »

As subject, as soon as I open a LibreOffice document, the entire desktop session crashes.

I've been serially reporting this issue to various forums now: mate forum, Libreoffice bugzilla, LibreOffice QnA site, and finally to GitHub issues page of mate-desktop, from where I was directed here.

If anyone has any clues or any pointers for where to look at, please let me know.

I can grab all those ISOs and test them. But, to be honest, LO is not something I use on a regular basis. It's just that I myself needing a spreadsheet, and thought going that way. Having discovered the crash, being a good but lazy citizen, I thought I'd highlight this to the right places.

As to how I recover: once it crashes, I'm taken back to the login screen. It's not that horrible that I've to reboot my system altogether.

I am having a similar problem with the newest LibreOffice Calc: opening saved files brings an error screen telling me that LO has unexpectedly crashed but the files will be retrieved next time LO opens.
This is scary. I'm running Mate 17.3, which itself does not seem affected when the error is reported.

I ran memtest as one post suggested, with no errors found. One bug report relates the Calc problem to Calc's 'save automatic information' setting, under Tools>Options>Load/Save>General.
Should I change that setting or just remove the current LO and use an older version?

Thanks for the 32/64 bit analysis, but for a relative amateur like me reinstalling an older LO might work better/safer.
