Mojave

Issues installing under the Mac OSX - X11 - Aqua

Mojave

Postby Ingemann » Thu Feb 21, 2019 9:11 pm

Please help. Ever since upgrading to Mojave, OpenOffice (and LibreOffice) crashes whenever I open the fonts dialogue (ie try to change the font). I have reinstalled the OS and searched all forums and even contacted Apple support to no avail. No problems under High Sierra. Can anybody help?

[Tutorial] Mac FAQ Q07/A07. You did not indicate what component of OpenOffice you are using, but the same difficulty may affect Writer. I don't use MacOS 10.14 so maybe this is a new problem with OpenOffice on that OS.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.

Thank you for your reply. I did read the tutorial (after using OpenOffice for years). The issue is universal for all components, and deleting my user file did not correct the problem, which is also present in "safe mode".

If the problem is also present in Safe Mode, then an uninstall/reinstall (from a fresh download) should be tried.


Also, try disabling use of OpenGL fonts.

I have tried reinstalling many times, and it does not cure the problem. I will look into disabling OpenGL fonts. I have also contacted Apple, as the rather new iMac is also slow, and they could not immediately identify the problem even with the crash reports available to them, and they are currently working on the problems.

What screen resolution are you using? If you switch screen down to (say: 1280x1024) and ran LibreOffice in that mode, is speed improved? If so, switch the resolution up in stages, using the standard settings offered, until speed fails.
