And make sure you have write permissions to whole .libreoffice directory: chown john ~/.libreoffice -R

chmod u+rw ~/.libreoffice -R

If this does not help, maybe deleting the file does? rm /home/john/.libreoffice/3/user/extensions/bundled/lastsynchronized

Hi @johnb,

I agree with everything @mahfiaz suggests. I'd suggest that you make a backup of that lastsynchronized file before deleting it, just in case you need to restore it later (it sounds like it's a pretty low-importance file, but just in case :-).

If that doesn't help you, then please file a bug about this problem. It's possible that there is some underlying issue that the QA team would be interested to investigate.

Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".

Thanks!
