I am facing the situation that any assistant i chose crashes my LO. I had the LO that came with Ubuntu 12.04 and because it crashed I just installed LO 3.6.4 on my system . I removed the older version of LO with "sudo apt-get remove libreo*" before the new install and also removed the .config/Libreoffice folder.

Does anybody knows what could be the cause?

uname -a tells me: "Linux Oldman 3.5.0-18-generic #29-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 24 19:51:55 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux" So it's an Ubuntu 12.04 with a newer kernel.

i have solved my problem. I removed the OpenJdk Version 6 and replaced it with OpenJdk 7. After configuring the new version under Extras\Options\Java it now runs fine.

Funny: it is an OpenJdk but shown as Oracle Corporation 1.7.0_09 in the LibreOffice dialog.

Not funny: JDK 7 is Oracle's implementation of the next version of Java SE platform. Oracle, in concert with the broader Java and open-source community is working on implementing the features to be specified in the recently-approved Java SE 7 JSR.

Hi @chausel, If you've solved your own problem, please mark your answer as correct (you may need to gain additional karma first -- sorry about that limitation!)

Hi @chausel, I just gave you a bit of karma -- I'm sure you'll have enough karma to close out your own question soon :-)
