I have been using Libreoffice for years now (OOo before that). With the v4 of Libreoffice, all my reports in Base refuse to open and all I get is the following:
“Document could not be opened -
caught a java.lang.IncompatibleClassChangeError”
All my reports worked on previous versions. I have been glued to LO v3.4 as all other Base modules were WAAAYYYYY too slow to be efficient. With LO 4.1.3 this changed and even the HSQL problem is better addressed, however, now I cannot access my reports. I downloaded Open Office 4.0 (Please don’t shoot me) and my reports still work on OOo, but inevitably my db crashes and I lose my data and I do not want to go that route too many times. Even LO 3.4 is more stable in that regard.
I updated my java to the latest version and this problem still persists. I have used JRE 184.108.40.206, then 1.7.0_25 and finally 1.7.0_45. None of these are from the distro, but rather downloaded from the oracle site.
Am running Linux Mint 15 KDE on a Lenovo G570 1.8Ghz Celeron Processor with 3GB Ram (Yep, still 32 bit version).
