Cannot save with password

Postby Hillbilly » Mon Dec 22, 2014 12:27 am

Strange problem:
Suddenly I cannot open or save a long standing calc file with a password even with basic ascii chars.
I get a "General error. General input/output error."
No pw = no problem.
I'm on OO4.1 under Linux Mint and I have reset the profile for OO.
I have also pasted the data into a new file and removed protections etc.
On the same pc with a separate disk also running Mint as a separate OS, LibreOffice works for the same file(s) on any of the 3 disks so this proves that there are no permissions issues.
Any ideas? Thanks.

Perhaps not enough free space on the troublesome drive? Extra workspace may be needed for the encryption process.

Good point but all the drives have >100Gb spare and 16Gb RAM.
I was thinking overnight that there might be a java/python package that's gone missing. Do you know if encrypt needs a particular one?
Will try a reinstall/update/broken check next.

None of the above cure problem.
Maybe after all these years its bye bye Open, hello Libre unless somebody has an answer.
