[Solved] Crashes

Issues with installing under all Linux Distributions

[Solved] Crashes

Postby AlaricWood » Thu Jul 20, 2017 7:46 am

I recently posted about getting Open Office on my desktop and task bar. Stupid of me but thanks for the help. At the same time I made a mild complaint about instability which someone denied. Any attempt to customize the keyboard immediately crashes the programme. I have a number of keys I use for indents, font size, upper and lower case and movement to the top of the next or last page. While I can do without them if I must, they make work a lot easier. I run Debian 9 on an i7 chip with 8 gbs of ram. The hard drive is more than adequate for anything I can throw at it. If the problem cannot be solved I will revert to Libre Office and use Open Office only for the things Libre Office can't do.

Can you be more specific about how to cause the crash? I can reproduce the bug that causes AOO 4.1.3 to crash when clicking the Page icon on the Styles and Formatting window (fixed in AOO 4.2.0), but I have been unable to make AOO crash while using the Customize window to customize the keyboard.

Select Tools>customise>keyboard>template>save>^T>modify and the programme goes down at once. If I can find them I may be able to copy the LibreOffice shortcuts to OpenOffice. I haven't tried that yet.

Entering your sequence didn't cause a crash for me on Debian 9. However, AOO did crash when I selected the "OpenOffice" radio button. I was able to work around the problem by using the sudo openoffice4 command to start AOO. The same workaround stops the previously mentioned crash when using the Styles and Formatting window. Since that problem has been fixed in AOO 4.2.0, I downloaded and installed the dev snapshot for AOO 4.2.0 and found that this problem is also fixed.

I can't find 4.2. It's not listed on the website. I will revert to LibreOffice and put up with the one or two things it won't do.

4.2 is still in testing (aka beta) mode to my knowledge. Some people have access, but most do not.
You mention that LibreOffice has "one or two things it won't do"... You can always make new topics on this same forum in regards to those items, and someone might be able to tell/show you that they do exist, or you might get a workaround.

The download page has a link to "Development Builds". There are links on the Development Builds page to download nightly and snapshot development builds to be used for testing purposes only.
