Hi, I’m running LibreOffice on Linux (Debian), and recently it’s started not letting me open files that I am not the owner of. This crops up when I try to open files that are on my Windows partitions, as they are always owned by root. Even though I have full access permissions, LibreOffice says “Access to … was denied”.
If I copy these files to my home folder, I can replicate these results. If I am the owner of the file it will open up, but if I change it to a different user/root it will show that error (even if I have full permissions). Changing the group has no effect.
This problem only exists with LibreOffice, e.g. I can open up a csv file that I don’t own in my text editor but not in LibreOffice Calc.
I’ve upgraded my system fully, and have completely removed and re-installed LibreOffice and its dependencies, but it didn’t fix anything.
Edit: Also tried via command line (libreoffice and socalc/sowriter) still getting the errors, also no useful debug information
