    [SOLVED] OpenOffice 3 Recovery Crash Fix!

    After going around and around in the document recovery loop/crash with the newest OpenOffice (3), I have decided to document my steps and post the resolution in hopes that it will help many of our Linux brethren

    I went through the following:
    Completely uninstalled OpenOffice 2 and the installation of OpenOffice 3
    I installed OpenOffice 3 (sudo dpkg -i *.deb) from within the DEBS folder
    I then installed desktop integration from the desktop-integration folder

    I renamed .openoffice.org2 to openoffice.org2.backup

    I deleted the Recovery.xcu file

    I did: OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

    When I'd start OpenOffice from shell (soffice) and (soffice -writer), it immediately went right into Document Recovery mode and gave this output in Bash:
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException'
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException'

    I also had made sure that the .openoffice and .openoffice2 folders were not owned by root

    Finally, I found this post:http://www.nabble.com/-Linux--OOo3RC...d19695985.html

    I followed the instructions (deleted .openoffice.org folder and renamed .openoffice.org2.backup back to .openoffice.org2)

    *note that these folders are hidden by default in your home directory, so once you're there just press control+h to show the hidden files

    Works like a charm now.

    WHOOHOOO!

    Hope this helps some people!

    An alternative, as long as you don't care about any of your settings:
    Code:
    rm -rf .openoffice.org
    rm -rf .openoffice.org2

    Re: [SOLVED] OpenOffice 3 Recovery Crash Fix!

    I had to install a copy of OOo 3.1.1 next to an existing 3.1.0 installation (because I suddenly needed the database app) and I ran into this problem when trying to use write, spreadsheet, etc... basically any of the 3.1.0 apps that were already installed.

    This fix rectified the situation! Thanks a bunch.

    I also noticed that "recover document" infinite loop with Openoffice 3.1. Installing 3.2 as described here fixed it. However, it also changed the open/save dialogs.

    Re: [SOLVED] OpenOffice 3 Recovery Crash Fix!

    None of these methods works, partly perhaps because I'm already on 3.2

    As this is marked solved, I'm starting another thread "Open Office 3 Infinite Recovery/Crash loop" so if you're looking for an answer and this thread doesn't fix it, suggest you look for that one.
