Hi, sorry if my english is bad, it's not my first language.

It happened a lot of time lattely and I dont know how to solve this problem: I work with dual boot windows/linux mint and I'm a big linux Fan and I try to work only on Linux but libreOffice Calc don't stop to crash my linux mint (last version) when I try to open a .xlsx file.

I checked on this site for some answer but didn't find any that help to solve my problem.

Do you have any idea to help me on how to solve my problem ?

Please try resetting the user profile, sometimes solves strange issues. Usually it's enough renaming/deleting the file "user/registrymodifications.xcu", it affects all the options in Menu/Tools/Options, and the files "user/basic/dialog.xlc" and "scrip.xlc" are overwritten, additionally custom colors in "user/config/standard.soc" are lost.

Haven't seen LO crash on Linux for a long time. Is this a fresh install of Mint 17.3?

Try to install LibreOffice 5.1.3 and see if the problem goes away.
