Hi, After running TESTDISK i got a lot of files with name Fnnnnn.ODS and .ODT Openning one looking what is in and for some SAVE AS xxxx, then CLOSE DOCUMENT (not application) and after delete the Fnnnnn.ODS (or ODT) and open the next one. After 7 to 10 documents CENTOS FREEZES just the mouse is moving but nothing else works, even the clock doesn't change, the only possibility was to POWER OFF. Doing the same thing but CLOSING THE APPLICATION for each document solves the problem. The version i have is : Version: 5.3.6.1 Build ID: 5.3.6.1-19.el7 Threads CPU : 4; Version de l'OS :Linux 3.10; UI Render : par défaut; VCL : gtk3; Moteur de mise en page : nouveau; Locale : fr-CH (fr_CH.UTF-8); Calc: group

Many thanks for your help, René

An other interesting thing is that when i restarted LibreOffice ask me to recover the previous document which froze Centos.

This may or may not help.

Try restarting GNOME.

  1. exit the hanging libreoffice

  2. (Alt-F2 (GNOME command dialog) command: "r" for restart)

My problem is different to yours but with libre office freezing after working for a while . . it is similar enough that I think this has a possibility of helping.

For me . . . Libre Office 5.3.6.1 on CentOS 7.6.1810, year 2019

After a few days/weeks/.. of operation when libreoffice opened a document it would open, show document ok but cursor would do nothing. Menus operated but were slow, did nothing. Part of the application was hanging. Also new document had same behaviour.

A full system reboot solves the problem.

Also, easier, a GNOME restart solves the problem:
