It's a clean OS install that I did yesterday, I tried to make some document but when I try to save the libreoffice 5 crashes. Even removing profile it doesn't work.

Running from console I got: (soffice:29367): Gtk-CRITICAL *: gtk_entry_set_text: assertion 'GTK_IS_ENTRY (entry)' failed (soffice:29367): Gtk-CRITICAL *: gtk_entry_set_text: assertion 'GTK_IS_ENTRY (entry)' failed (soffice:29367): Gtk-CRITICAL *: gtk_widget_grab_focus: assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed (soffice:29367): Gtk-CRITICAL *: _gtk_file_chooser_entry_set_base_folder: assertion 'GTK_IS_FILE_CHOOSER_ENTRY (chooser_entry)' failed (soffice:29367): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_entry_get_text: assertion 'GTK_IS_ENTRY (entry)' failed

I think that related to gtk3 function.

I found something about in Archlinux foruns, forcing the libreoffice use gtk and not gtk3 the save function will work.
