I’ve used LibreOffice for many years. On occasion, I’ve seen it crash; but it used to be fairly infrequent. Lately it feels like it’s been happening a lot more. In the last half-year or so, it seems to happen every time I do anything major on LibreOffice. I use Kubuntu 22.10, but my sister who uses Windows observed a similar thing. I’ve also seen it on various different computers, so it doesn’t seem to be a hardware issue. The crashes usually happen on a particular keystroke (always an innocent one, such as shift+down-arrow) and usually on a file of several pages with interesting things, such as formulae or page breaks, in it.
So two things:
- Is there a particular log file that would shed light on why these crashes happen? I checked xsession-errors, but found nothing about it there.
- Is it just my imagination, or have others likewise observed a similar pattern? If the latter, might I be able to avoid them by switching to an earlier version, say from a year or two ago?
