Manjaro Linux XFCE ships with Libre installed. 32bit OS is freshly installed. I can start Libre Office and from there all apps except Writer. When started from terminal with 'libreoffice --writer' it crashes without message. When started from terminal with 'libreoffice --writer %U' it crashes with message "/home/user/%U does not exist". When started with file it creates lock and exits on the end of loading progress bar. Removing settings folder doesn't solve it. I've had exactly the same problems before, can't remember was it Ubuntu or Manjaro and I can't remember how did I solve it.

The good guys at Manjaro forum solved it: it's kernel problem. Downgraded kernel from 4.9 to 4.4 and everything is working now.
