Upon opening any LibreOffice 6.3 application I get a box asking me if I want to recover "Untitled 1". I can choose "START" or "DISCARD". If I choose "START" the recovery fails and the program closes. If I choose "DISCARD" the program immediately closes.

Manjaro forum fixed me up:

start libreoffice in safemode and reset all user preferences. then the next time it should run properly

you need to use the terminal command below to do this:

libreoffice --safe-mode

Thank you. My libreoffice kept crashing on startup. This command helped.

$ libreoffice --safe-mode

I reset to factory setting. Now everything (everything?) works! Thanks, Manjaro
