Re: [SOLVED] libreoffice fails to launch in Devuan 4.0

I'm using that same version both for OS & DE. LO boots fine via the xfce menu.

$ lsb_release -a

The launch files are horribly long, but here it is (you will need to give some sort of trouble-shooting after this to receive further help):

Re: [SOLVED] libreoffice fails to launch in Devuan 4.0

i tried with command line prompt and received an error:

i updated to chimera from 3.0, maybe libreoffice didn't get updated propperly during the process?  but checking 'synaptics' indicating libreoffice base/core are up-to-date

You need to install mlocate to be able to use the (command-line) locate command. I would strongly advocate for it.

Well, that was easy.

This page points to the lack of (or faulty) GTK2 causing that error, whilst the latest post points out that nowadays GTK3 is required. That neatly suggests that this is the issue:

Check whether libreoffice-gtk3 is installed and, if not, I suspect that you have found the issue.

PS

I suspect that a simple fix may be to add backports to your repository list, which gives the latest LO and should fully update it at the same time. Here is my current setup:

$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main non-free contrib
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera-updates main non-free contrib

Re: [SOLVED] libreoffice fails to launch in Devuan 4.0

Gday

LibreOffice Appimage works with Dev1
https://www.libreoffice.org/download/appimage/

Also if you need a word processor and spreadsheet
You could always install Abiword and Gnumeric
or just type something up in text editor or mark down editor


I really like appimage
I have a folder for them all

I myself control when it updates or not
I can revert back to a older build if needed most of the time (LibreWolf changes the profile so you cant revert)

---

Anyone else using GhostWriter for Markdown editing ?
https://wereturtle.github.io/ghostwriter/download.html
Its also got a Appimage
