(SOLVED) Libreoffice fails to start after upgrade

Postby Mr. Lumbergh » 2020-06-17 19:36

Last night I ran a few upgrades that Software Center alerted me were available. A few of them were for LibreOffice packages as I recall, but after booting up this morning I'm unable to open either a Calc or Writer document. It appears as though it's opening in the taskbar, then the tab for it closes immediately. I've checked to make sure there wasn't a dialog box open somewhere asking for a file recovery or the like. I've also renamed the config file for LibreOffice with a .bak extension to try to get it to rewrite a new one and open. No luck so far.

Any advice on how to proceed is appreciated.

Start them from the command line interface, and that should give you a hint.

For some reason, starting Calc on the command line gave me a pop-up asking to recover a document whereas it didn't before. Now seems to be OK. thank you.
