Why does LO 6.2.2 not starting with ott-files

I'm running LibreOffice 6.2.2 on Linux Mint Cinnamon 18. Since the latest update, I'm unable to launch ott-files. The window stays totally blank. Just only the application name is seen in the window header. I realized, that the file registrymodifications.xcu might cause the problem. If I remove it, LO starts with an ott file once. The file registrymodifications.xcu is created again and than, a second time, start of an ott-file fails again. I also deleted the whole user-directory - same problem. In a different user profile, everything works fine. How can I solve this problem? With LO 6.1.x, everything runs fine.

Thanks in advance,

Try to reset the user profile. Save the existing profile under a different name beforehand.

Thank you for your reply, but this was one of my first actions - I renamed the whole directory named libreoffice and tried again. This works exactly once. Than, the problem occurs again.

Any other idea?

Unfortunately, I have not installed Linux with me. But I would like to point out that it is always pointed out that one should download LibreOffice from the original website and not use that of the distribution.

I hope someone with Linus knowledge can help you.
