I recently upgraded my Slackware64-Current Linux distribution (12/22/2021 version) on my desktop. The new system uses the 5.15.10 version of the kernel. It also included upgrading libreoffice to version 7.2.4. Libreoffice works just fine on my desktop machine, but when I did the exact same upgrade on my new laptop and tried to start libreoffice, it shows the splash screen then crashes. Even when started from the command line, there isn’t any error information. I can get libreoffice to run if I start it in safe mode, but changing the options shown there doesn’t seem to make any difference. This leads to three questions:
- How to get libreoffice running in regular mode on my laptop?
- Why isn’t/wasn’t it running on the laptop?
- Why does the exact same setup work on my desktop but not on my laptop?
Any suggestions is appreciated
