Hi there,

I had posted a startup problem with LibreOffice recently. But mistakenly,
had posted it in a hijacking way. Thanks to Carlos for pointing out this
and providing me some ideas along with other people. So I start a new
thread because I need further help on this issue and here are something
new I found on my problem. And the direction to solve the problem seems

For reference, following is the links to the posts in the hijacked

First of all, I can confirm that the issue is not with Java. I fired up a
VirtualBox and installed openSUSE Tumbleweed in it with almost all
as default. LibreOffice runs smoothly without further setup, just like my
current system.

Here are something new,
1. LibreOffice does not run in a newly created account in my system. The
error messages are the same.
2. I have already tried to remove LibreOffice and reinstall all related
packages and this does not help.
3. It seems that LibreOffice can run by root,
cnzhx@ostp:/home/cnzhx> libreoffice --version
terminate called after throwing an instance of
cnzhx@ostp:/home/cnzhx> sudo libreoffice --version
LibreOffice 10(Build:2)

Then, the question is that how could I make LO also works by normal user.

I have no clue where to start trying. Any suggestions are welcome!

It's weird that I got maybe the same problem again. And this time it
happened when I was updating my system to snapshot 20190108. After
several minutes' not responding and blinking "CapsLock" key (it has a LED
indicator), the laptop restarted itself and enterred directly into rescue
mode. At lease, the root partition, which was BtrFS, was reported not
mountable because of "bad superblock". This is the same as last time.

But that's not LO? That's something else, a problem with btrfs.
It's so embarrassing that I posted to the wrong place, again.

Of course, I have no clue on how to rescue it. So I reinstalled again but
this time I used EXT4 for the root partition. Let's see where it goes.

I'm sorry to say that I would have done the same :-(
