I use Ubuntu rather than Fedora but your problem sounds to me like an issue with permissions to access some file since things work with sudo and not without sudo. I would search the computer for "RANDR" for starters. I don't know where to look for installed extensions used by LO. Maybe someone else can chime in with a useful remark or two.

Hi, I've had problems with Libreoffice on 3 separate computers running Fedora
13, 15, and 16.   When I'd bring up Libreoffice, I would get a "central
configuration" error.   Google tells me this occurs when separate libreoffice
installations exist.   This was not the case as far as I can tell, but all 3
computers have upgraded from past distributions in which open office was
running.   Removing libreoffice via yum, or deleting the ~/.libreoffice
directory didn't help, but I could run it from the command line via**sudo

So, I've downloaded the 3.5 versions directly from Libreoffice, and tried to
install them on my Fedora 16 computer, after removing version 3.4.
Installation seemed successful, but I get this problem:

     $ libreoffice3.5
     Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0".

If I run it under 'sudo', it works fine.    Can anyone help me to get this
running under normal user mode?   Presumably I need to set some permissions
somewhere, but I'm not sure where.
