    libreoffice runs only with sudo

    hy, I hope its the right place to post my problem.

    my libreoffice doesn`t work any more. if I run it like:

    Code:
    florian@system:~$ libreoffice 
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException'
    florian@system:~$
    I always get that message.
    If I try it with sudo, it work`s fine.

    Here is, how I tried to fix it:

    remove libreoffice and reinstall
    checked the rights of ~/.libreoffice/
    removed ~/.libreoffice
    checked out, if there is any openoffice.org file or dir on my system (none)

    can someone help me please??
    thanks

    Can you create a new user and try as that new user?

    sorry..i forgot to write this option:

    so, I made a new user and tried out.

    result:

    if I add a new user, it works until I reboot the system. afterwards I have the same problems with the new user.

    Very weird.

    If you have the time, what happens if you reboot before you tried libreoffice? Are you able to start libreoffice after the reboot in that way? (btw, if you remove the user, make sure you also remove the users home directory)

    For more serious debugging, can you make a stack trace as described here: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/B....28on_Linux.29

    Since the crash is in the beginning, I don't need compression would be needed, but that's up to you to decide.

    ok..this is very crazy...

    1. I added a new user
    2. system reboot
    3. login as the new user, libreoffice works great
    4. system reboot
    5. login as the new user, libreoffice works great

    I would also wonder if at some point you've started libreoffice as root with sudo and that's causing the issue.

    Try removing the libreoffice folder from the home causing issue again.

    Then run libreoffice.

    You can try to install with the debs from the LibO website. See [Ubuntu] Installing OOo on Debian and Co. the same procedure applies.
