6.0.1-1 crashes when opening a file

Hi guys,

Recently my install of libreoffice-fresh on arch stopped working. I am unable to open any kind of file. Whether it is a .ods, .odt, .xlsx or .docx file. Every one of them manages to crash libreoffice after being hung for quite a while. I ranlocalc --backtrace after installing gdb. It came up with this:

warning: Currently logging to gdbtrace.log.  Turn the logging off and on to make the new setting effective.

/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/gdbtrace:9: Error in sourced command file:
No stack.

Can anyone point my in the direction of what’s wrong?

I already tried:

  • updating arch
  • reinstalling lo
  • switching between still en fresh
  • disabling java
  • remove the user profile (in .config/libreoffice/4/)

The file I tested this with, is one I created with libreoffice on the computer with the problem and saved as .ods. So any incompatibilities between MS office en lo are out of the equation.


ps: sorry for the mess of code. I can’t seem to get the newlines quite right.


I just opened the file in a MS excel on a virtual machine and in libre office calc on another computer, which also runs arch + deepin + lo (still). On both ocassions it opened just fine. After that I updated the other computer and opened the .ods file again. And it opened just fine. I’m really running out of ideas here. :frowning:

yet another update:

I just found out I can open all those documents just fine as root. I did some searching online and found someone who suggested to check the executables for their permissions. So I checked both /usr/bin/libreoffice and /usr/lib/libreoffice/bin/soffice. And they both have the right permissions. (world executable) Can you guys think of something to explain this behavior? By now I have removed and reinstalled LO at least 5 times. And I removed the .config/libreoffice folder each time.
