After install LO 4.1 I have LO icons in my apps/office menu but non of them work. I click and get LO logo, then sand clock for a while and then nothing. I just does not run. I did review many related NO LAUNCH questions but many do not have answer. My system: Linux eeepc, Xandros based on debian 4.1.1-21, KDE 3.4.2 Any help will be appreciated.

Hello. I did try rename user profile as old and let LO regenerate a new one but still does not launch. I notice that in the user profile there are only two folders named config and extensions, each one with only one file each. There are no other folders in user contents. Note: I do have Staroffice 8 running aside with no problem. I went to .staroffice folder and it has a user folder which in deed do have all 15 folders listed in user content.. Could this be related..???
I am not sure if change user folder location is applicable.. I went to bootstraprc file and it looks ok to me: UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/libreoffice/4 On the other hand, staroffice bootstraprc states UserInstallation=$SYSUSERCONFIG/.staroffice8 which seems accordingly to how it is working...

I quit with this.... No way to make it work. I had to change operating system with other with LO 3.x preloaded.
