I've many problems with LO.

It often crashes/freezes (I don't know how to explain). I can't type anything in the window.

I can only close or minimize the window, but if I close the alert popup (save or abort) is completely grey without nothing, and if I minimize I will find the window completely grey!

Here's the screenshot:

you need to provide more info - which bodhi and also try to uninstall and reinstall - that may help - there may have been some packages left out on install.

nothing, nothing has changed!

I tested the same LO version in ubuntu and works fine, so I think depend by bodhi, what could be the problem?

It was a big problem for me, I've all the files in open format. I can't even open them and export.

Is anyone else having this issue with Libre Office in Bodhi? Looks / works as expected here on all my systems.

Hello, I remember to have replied before... maybe I didn't clicked "post".

Anyway, seems I solved, but I don't know how I did it.

I installed LXDE (I was really disappointed yesterday), maybe in those packages there is something that makes it work.

yes, tried...

I tried with reinstall, then remove and install from synaptic and finally remove from synaptic and install in app center.

And... nothing! same problem.

I didn't know how to do, I had to edit some .odt files and I was not able to do!

My last chance was try another DE, and I chose LXDE. After this, LO worked in LXDE so I immediately tried in bodhi... and works! Al least until now...

Hmm. Theme issue? Try to change gtk theme in the setting panel/look section/application theme. Let me install LO and try it...

 

EDIT

  • Libre Office 5.1.6.2 installed from repository
  • Moonlight theme installed
  • Moonlight GTK theme set
  • no issues here...

Although they share the same problem, the cause might be different for each one. I was tempted to ask a little more about sket's case (was he reusing /home from a prior linux, in Bodhi, etc.) but his LXDE or whatever fixed it. Daka's case might require a different solution. 

 

In daka's case, I suggest opening or launching LO from the command line to see what warnings appear before the blank windows. Might actually be incomplete packaging, but not in LO, maybe fonts? or something else, since others like Jeff and the waiter are not experiencing anything unusual while using LO)

 

And also follow the waiter's suggestion as well. 


Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything

No problem in my KDE-fied Moksha either. 

 

Other than occasional lock up, which handled in different threads, No problem to my Libre Office.

Works fine on 4.1.0 on an Acer laptop.
