I am running Fedora 18 with KDE desktop. I am now in the middle of a project and LibreOffice started crashing all the time. As soon as I start an instance of ‘Writer’ or ‘Calc’, they startup, and either crash immediately, or crash as soon as I move the mouse to the top menu.
I do not believe that the problem lies necessarily with those applications. I have reinstalled LibreOffice as well as Java, which I think is used by LibreOffice , at least for some functionality. But the problem persists. I don’t know how to diagnose this. I get little pop-ups from KDE and the Automatic Bug Reporting tool. The message is
“A problem in libreoffice-core-126.96.36.199-4.fc18 package has been detected”
It also says libreoffice crashed. Process /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
To continue my work I am running LibreOffice in MS Windows on VirtualBox, but this is annoying and clumsy, and I hope I can somehow fix this, but frankly I have no idea how to go about it.
Any ideas anyone on how to proceed to diagnose this?
