Hi, 

 

I have installed LibreOffice 6 on LinuxBodhi 4.4.0. On the attempt to launch it, a window "Moksha had error running libreoffice6.0 -- writer."

 

Any suggestions how to fix it?

 

Thank you,

 

Val





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Start LO from the command line to see what useful error information you get. Copy and paste the relevant information in to your favorite search engine and see what kind of hits you get. If you see something useful and actually find an answer, share that info in this post.

The problem is with oosplash whatever it is.

 

The following website recommends

 

https://ask.libreoff...will-not-start/

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

I tried but it does not work.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thank you,

 

Val

The first link suggests

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --reinstall install libreoffice-core

The second link is just the search I performed.

Tried both your suggested fix and mine - none of them worked. The problem with oosplash is still there.  :wacko:

I apologize for failing to be helpful. I run Arch linux with moksha as the DE and LO6 isn't even in the repos here yet; Arch is a rolling release that stays pretty up to date hopefully with no need to reinstall. With my lack of knowledge I could only share how I try to help people that ask for help here.

@ birdmun

 

It was a helpful hint though. Based on what the other websites say, your recommendation should work.

 

I wonder of LibreOffice 6 has a different core. If so, what should be the command to re-install it.

 

I tried libreoffice6.0-core and libreoffice-core6.0 but these expressions were not recognized as valid commands.

 

What I like about LibreOffice 6 that it can export to EPUB 3. I have a large MS Word document (about 650 pages). MS Word was able to open it but failed to work with the file. Apple Paige was not able to open it at all and froze an i7 Mac with 32 GB of RAM. LibreOffice 6 opened it in a fracture of a second, and exported into EPUB 3 in 1-2 sec. I even thought that it just crashed rather than performed the conversion. When I checked the output file - it was a perfectly converted EPUB. Apparently, those guys at LibreOffice have done a great job.

 

Also, LO6 can read AbiWord files. 

 

Today is just the second day after LO6 is released - hopefully, someone will come with a solution of oosplash problem.

 

Thank you again,

 

Val

I believe tab autocomplete should work with apt-get install libreoffice<tab>

You might get a list of packages that you could install with that.

Hi, guys - the problem is solved.

 

The problem was that I downloaded a 32-bit deb version of the LibreOffice 6.0.

 

After I downloaded the correct 64-bit version and followed instructions from here https://www.techrepu...ice-6-on-linux/everything worked.

 

The moral is - before diving into the command line, make sure that the correct package is downloaded.

 

Birdmun, thank you for your patience with me.

 

Val

 

PS Checking LO6 in virtual machine right now, and it works. Will reinstall it on the home computers,

LibreOffice 6 opens AbiWord files but it cannot export into it.  :(

I don't think the web version is intended to replace the desktop version. From the 6.0 announcement blog post "LibreOffice 6.0 is immediately available for Windows, macOS and Linux, and for the cloud."  Not sure where you find the cloud version. :-)

I think the cloud version is their answer to making separate ios and android versions.
