I’ve recently updated my LibreOffice suit to 18.104.22.168.0+, on my Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS.
Whenever I try to access a document on my mounted media, I get an error message saying:
Access to /media/…/Data/…/…/xxx.yyy was denied.
I checked the permissions, and my user is able to read and write the file.
I even tried executing
sudo libreoffice, and got the following output:
sudo libreoffice mkdir: cannot create directory '/run/user/0': Permission denied No protocol specified No protocol specified mkdir: cannot create directory '/run/user/0': Permission denied No protocol specified No protocol specified :
Nothing happened afterwards, at least within the period of time I had allowed.
Right now, my workaround is to move the documents to the desktop, work on them, then recopy them back to the mounted drives. Is there a permanent solution to this nuisance ?
Some technical details according to LibreOffice’s Help > About LibreOffice:

Thanks in advance.
