I just installed LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 on a Red Hat Linux EL 5. Then when I try to run libreoffice4.1 from the command line, a window appears and it looks like it is trying to load, but then it quickly disappears and libreoffice does not run.
I tried resetting the user profile and even deleting the ~/.config/libreoffice directory completely. That didn’t help.
I also tried reinstalling.
LibreOffice3.4 was previously installed on this machine and worked just fine. I didn’t upgrade but rather tried to do a fresh install. It is a possibility that I didn’t uninstall LibreOffice3.4 completely? I removed all the rpms by hand using rpm -e (for the libreoffice3.4 and libabasis3.4 rpms) so it looks like nothing is left.
I did an install on a different RHEL 5 machine that never had libroffice installed and it runs correctly on that machine. This is what makes me think things are not completely cleaned out on that machine where it doesn’t run. Does anyone know what I missed?
