libreoffice freezes at start on debian buster


I have a freshly installed/upgraded debian buster on my desktop computer.
When I start libreoffice a window opens, and then immediately freezes, nothing else happens, and that is it.

I tried removing config files and reinstalling, as in:

apt remove --purge libreoffice-*

rm -r ~/.config/libreoffice/

apt install libreoffice-calc

but that does not help.

any suggestions/help would be highly appreciated


Afaik Debian Buster is not yet a released product but a development/testing release and you do not specify in your question which libreoffice resources you are using. Are these from some debian repository or the native LO files from<x.y.z>/deb/ ?

sorry, missed to provide that info … it is in the official debian buster/testing repository (otherwise i could
not install it using apt) which is stable enough, the version is 1:6.1.5 …
prompt> dpkg -l | grep libreoffice-base
ii libreoffice-base-core 1:6.1.5-1 amd64 office productivity suite – shared library

I removed all libreoffice from my system and installed version 6.2.1 using the deb files at the link provided by Opaque (thanks!)

now it works again.
