some days ago, I installed LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on a Lenovo Ideapad 5.15. So far, everything seems to be running nicely with one rather large exception.
Together with my Laptop I am using a Synology DS215j running on DSM 6.2.4-25556. On that NAS, there are a couple of shared folders, mounted via fstab entries following the schema:
SomeIPv4address:/volume1/fum /mnt/fum nfs auto,user,defaults,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,intr 0 0
using nfs 3 and AUTH_SYS authentication.
Again, everything seems to be running nicely. However, when I am trying to access files on the shares with LibreOfficeWriter LibreOffice freezes. By accessing I mean trying to open documents in Nautilus, trying to do so via the ‘open’ menu entry or trying to save newly created files to the share. After a quick check, Calc seems to be having the same issue.
Is there somebody out there, who could help my with that problem? I found several related requests throughout the Internet. All of these seem to be concerned with the SMB protocol, though.
So, thanks a lot in advance! I am looking forward to your answers!
I have the rights to write in that folder. The document I was trying to open was one I copied into the share
ls -ln / | grep mnt: drwxr-xr-x 7 0 0 4096 Apr 10 14:34 mnt ls -ln /mnt | grep fum: drwxrwxrwx 7 0 0 4096 Apr 10 23:37 fum id: uid=1027(username) gid=100(users) Gruppen=100(users),4(adm),24(cdrom),27(sudo),30(dip),46(plugdev),120(lpadmin),131(lxd),132(sambashare),1000(username)
I also tried re-installing LibreOffice following Opaque’s instructions, albeit with German helpfiles. The problem still remains
[Edit - Opaque] Changed commands / output to pre-formtted text
Using the fstab entry
SomeIPv4address:/volume1/fum /mnt/fum nfs defaults
did not change the behaviour, neither by using sudo mount -a (after unmounting of course) nor by rebooting. I have not used the vers parameter.
Opening documents in read-only mode seems to be working. Removing the write protection again leads to Writer freezing.
It is the Synology firewall. I do not know which rule yet, but when I switch it off completely, LibreOffice seems to work nicely
Use fixed port for nlockmgr and enable that port in firewall settings
