I am running Fedora 26 and trying to use X11 Forwarding to run Libreoffice on a client from a server. Other applications (gnucash, qcad etc) all run fine, but Libre seems to fail with some sort of GTk error. My bad, I am not getting at GTk error. I have the ssh_config file set for X11Forwarding, I start ssh with ssh -v -Y <server name="">

There is no error that I can find in the ssh output when I run Libre. I get the flash screen then nothing.

Edit your question with detailed forwarding configuration.

Can't reproduce here. Tried it from my laptop (Fedora < 26) to my desktop running F26 (and F27 in a virtual machine). Both went fine. I didn't change default config: there is a ForwardX11Trusted yes in 05-redhat.conf which does the trick.

Sorry, I could not duplicate the GTk error. The only thing I get is the flash screen then nothing.
