when upgrading to this snapshot (with zypper dup
--no-allow-vendor-change), I had to reinstall veusz and convertall
because of change of version of Python. When I tried to keep old Python,
LibreOffice refused to update, so that I accepted remove of veusz and
convertall and upgraded everything from the snapshot.
Since then, LibreOffice fails to start. Splash is shown for a while, then
it disappears. Starting from command line produces nothing. I verified if
all packages are correctly installed and dependencies met and it seems to
be fine. Any idea how to trace the problem?

python3 (3.5.1 -> 3.6.0)
python3-base (3.5.1 -> 3.6.0)

I had the same problem and installed libreoffice-gtk3 to make it work
again. This seems to be a requirement now. Recommends are deactivated on
my systems, so I guess this is a packaging error where the gtk3 package
needs a change from recommended to required.

On a side note: libreoffice-kde4 seems to be of no effect whether
installed or not. I think I was not able to delete this without deleting
all kde4 components. Now it is possible to delete it without removing
anything else.

I am on Tumbleweed KDE.

Cheers, Thomas

Packages libreoffice-gtk3 and libreoffice-kde4 are not installed on my system
with KDE5). After removal of ~/.config/libreoffice it works again. So
gtk3 doesn't seem to by dependency.
