    regular openoffice crash with 10.10

    Hello,

    Since installing ubuntu 10.10 in january, my Openoffice (it seems mainly calc) regularly crashes. It always manage to keep file recovery active (even it's not always the latest). There is no really identified pattern except basically editing cells

    my packages are currently:
    ii openoffice.org-base-core 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu1.1 office product
    ivity suite -- shared library
    ii openoffice.org-calc 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu1.1 office product
    ivity suite -- spreadsheet
    ii openoffice.org-common 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu1.1 office product
    ivity suite -- arch-independent files
    ii openoffice.org-core 1:3.2.1-7ubuntu1.1 office product
    ivity suite -- arch-dependent files
    [...]

    It seems there is also some 3.2.1-6ubuntu stuff
    I use french localization in gnome environment if important

    any ideas how to debug the problem ?
    I just try to reset my preferences (move $HOME/.openoffice.org to .old) and I will see if it changes something.


    Thanks

    If no change, try the vanilla version: [Ubuntu] Installing OOo on Debian and Co.

    Re: regular openoffice crash with 10.10

    You could also try LibreOffice instead. I've been using it for some time now, no problems so far. The GTK integration is also great, provided you have the extra package installed (see bottom).

    Not sure if they're in the official repositories for 10.10, but here's the commands to add and install LibreOffice:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-gtk libreoffice-gnome

    PPA is not the official repository so beware. Better install from the LibO site (3.3.1 has just been released BTW).

    Yep, had some trouble trying to install via repository. Getting it from the Libre site. It also appears my netbook is on the cusp of minimum system requirements, this will be interesting.

    Really sad to have to make the switch, I like using the Zotero plugin ...OpenOffice has just been driving me nuts and crashing for the last few weeks for no apparent reason. Anyone know anything about this? I'm running OpenOffice on Ubuntu 10.10 as well. I usually run it with Firefox in the background, could that be it?

    Fingers crossed with the Libre install...

    I just tried with vanilla openoffice packages (3.3.0) with the same results.
    I will also try LibreOffice

    get deb from http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

    Have you reset the profile to be sure there is no leftover from previous versions.

    Re: regular openoffice crash with 10.10

    Do you edit ODF files or MS Office files? You seem to use mostly Calc but it happens also with Writer, correct?

    Perhaps you can try to change the tmp folder: create a dedicated folder in your home and set it in the Tools>Options>OOo>Paths dialog. Perhaps there is something interfering with the temporary files.

    Re: regular openoffice crash with 10.10

    editing ods file. I don't use enough writer in these past month to say it is also affected.

    Same behavior with moving tmp dir or with LibreOffice 3.3

    The code really seems to be the problem ...
    I think I will need another compatible software ...
