Libre Office does not open

Post by Carlingoo » Wed Jan 17, 2018 11:40 am

Hello to all!
I use my linux mint pc on which I installed libre office.
Unfortunately when I click on libreoffice writer I see the windows for two seconds as if you were opening the program, but then suddenly disappears and nothing opens, making it impossible to use office.
Does anyone know how I can solve?
Thanks you

Ciao a tutti
Uso il mio Pc con linux mint sul quale ho installato libreoffice
Sfortunatamente quando clicco su libreoffice writer si apre per 2 secondi una finestra come se si stesse aprendo il programma, ma dopo ciò questa finestra scompare e non si apre nulla, rendendomi impossibile l'utilizzo di office
C'è qualcuno che potrebbe aiutarmi?
Grazie mille :D :D :D :D

Try launching LibreOffice from the command line. This should provide an error message to help identify and solve the problem. Open a terminal, and enter

Code: Select all

libreoffice


To launch LibreOffice Writer, enter

Code: Select all

libreoffice --writer

What is your version of Mint and what is the desktop environment? If you don't know open a terminal and enter:

Code: Select all

inxi -Sz
Paste the output here.

Close the quick starter of LO, in case it is active.
Open the file manager and make hidden files visible (ctrl-h). Go into the folder .config inside of your home and rename the folder libreoffice to libreoffice.bck. Try again to launch Writer.

I have the same problem and I posted it too a few minute ago.

Ho lo stesso problema e l'ho segnalato anche io poco fa.

I have the same problem. When I try it from the terminal, the program closes silently (i.e. the opening window is displayed and then closes promptly and no error is written out to shell). On the "system monitor", LibreOffice is not listed at any stage. I'm running Linux Mint 19, clean installed. Until about a week ago, it was running fine. I'm not aware of having installed any application that is likely to have broken LibreOffice.
