Error saving the document: Object not accessible. The object cannot be accessed due to insufficient user rights

this has started happening on our little network (only 4 machines, wired):

files all stored on server machine. open file on network, save as... somewhere else on server - error. workaround: save file locally then move it back to desired server location. only affects libre office files.

version is : Version: Build ID: 1:6.2.3-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~lo1 CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2; Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US

OS 3 x ubuntu 16.04 32-bit, 1 x ubuntu 16.4 64-bit

file system is FAT32 everywhere

it only just started doing it - have not changed smbconf, and when try changes it does not make any difference. only affects libre office files.

  • LibreOffice version = ...?
  • operating system = ...?
  • file system on "network server" = ...?

Please ask good questions by giving enough details. See also guidelines for asking.

  • "has started happening" when, after what?
  • "it only just started doing it" - doubtful. LibreOffice version upgraded? If so then see Answer below.

mine is LO (x64) on WINDOWS 7, and suddenly (no change in access rights, widely speaking) after inserting a linked image, start shoting same error. Can save to local disk and copy manually from local to net drive (in fact, have all rights accessing and modifying net version file from the rest of software -7zip, emacs, etc.-). A downgrade to 6.2 solved the problem (but I like 6.3 ':-). WTW! It's always with Master Documents! But not all of them... :~(

Might be tdf#123472, if so then likely fixed in LibreOffice 6.2.4

Just now I'm having the same problem with LO in WIN7, so don't seem to be that, isn't it?
