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
13, 15, and 16. When I'd bring up Libreoffice, I would get a "central
configuration" error. Google tells me this occurs when separate
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
So, I've downloaded the 3.5 versions directly from Libreoffice, and
install them on my Fedora 16 computer, after removing version 3.4.
Installation seemed successful, but I get this problem:
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0".

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