debian 9 libreoffice writer fails to start in 32bit inst.

debian 9 libreoffice writer fails to start in 32bit inst.

Postby harritapio » 2017-06-22 08:08

I have a clean installation of debian 9 (stable) with gnome desktop. For some reason libreoffice writer does not start at all - no error message.
Any advice how to get it working is welcome!

I decided to make a 64bit installation from debian 9 and the problem disappeared!

If you open a Terminal and input: libreoffice
What happens?
What message do you get?
"Something to be aware of: Debian is a core or source distribution. This means there are many Debian-based distributions. THEY ARE NOT DEBIAN."

ok,
I purged libreoffice and renamed libreoffice folder in .config directory. After that apt-get install libreoffice.

Now when I type in terminal:
Code: Select all
harri@debian-p5:~$ libreoffice
harri@debian-p5:~$

LibreOffice Main 5 screen opens in the display. when I then select "Writer Document" from left menu bar LibreOffice 5 Main screen closes and nothing else happens. No output on terminal.

Problem disappeared when I made a 64bit installation of debian 9.0.0 with gnome desktop!

Re: debian 9 libreoffice writer fails to start - solved

I confirm that in a 32 bit clean installation of Debian 9
libreoffice-writer does not start (debian bug #820081).

Installing the debian 64 bit in place of the 32 bit can not be considered a solution
(not all users have the possibility, for example for lack of RAM, to substitute a 32 bit
os with a 64 one. It is like if i say that one has resolved a bug in debian
installing fedora. I suggest to eliminate "solved" from the title

this is a grave bug because libreoffice-writer for many desktop users is the most important application.
I hope debian team will be not lazy to correct immediately it as it happens for security bugs.
The workaround suggested (deinstall libreoffice-gtk) is not a solution. Libreoffice fonts and icons become so ugly
in particular in laptops that working with these applications become very hard.

Anyway, this important incident for debian 9 is probably a sign that the control quality for 32bit
distributions has lowered and 32 bit distributions are no more reliable.

I agree with what you say and I think this is especially important given that many other distros (Fedora/Ubuntu/Arch/Open SUSE) have just recently dropped support for 32-bit x86

http://www.networkworld.com/article/3091818/linux/linux-distros-look-to-drop-32-bit-support.html wrote:Ubuntu’s Dimitri John Ledkov put out a proposal on the Ubuntu mailing list recently that the company will be winding down support for 32-bit processors. He notes that by 2018, it will be two years since major software vendors and products—Google, ZFS and Docker, specifically—ended their support for 32-bit processors.

For me, too, libreoffice writer does not start. Tried to do this from terminal, but no messages was printed out. Obviously, i will too install 64 bit version, but for some people, 32 is only solution.

I can also confirm that LibreOffice Writer does not start in my Debian 9.0 32-bit system. I did a fresh install last night, from a 9.0.0 netinst (verified that all checksums matched), with the MATE DE selected.

I am disappointed because I didn't know about this bug beforehand, and LO Writer is one of my most frequently-used programs. I'm debating whether to fall back to Jessie, or to try installing the 64-bit version of Stretch. (The old netbook is supposedly 64-bit capable but I've never had a 64-bit version installed on it before).

i have just seen that some debian users or maintainers have found where is the origin of this
problem and it is (strange!) related to the kernel version and java libreoffice extensions:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=865866

Anyway i have not downgraded the kernel as they suggest but just removed
two java libreoffice-writer extensions that apparently cause the problem and that i
have never used or seen before (they are installed by default as example of extensions):

apt-get remove --purge libreoffice-wiki-publisher
apt-get remove --purge libreoffice-nlpsolver

After this libreoffice-writer is now running fine and for
me the problem is solved

My computer is pentium dual core with 2G Ram from 2008 and therefore I have always before also installed 32bit version of debian. Now when I as last resort installed 64bit version of debian 9, I'm positively surprised how good it's running

Glad to read that this odd feature of debian 9 has also reached debian developers!

@enry13,

Thank you very much for the helpful tip! :) I'll try it when I return home tonight and see if it fixes the problem.
