Hi, Thanks for all the feedback.The good news for me is that uninstalling then reinstalling libreoffice 3.4.6 from Debian/testing seems to have fixed things.
Ok, so if you have created parallel installs of LibreOffice without using the guide then they might be interacting badly.
I don't think that was the issue. In each ease I uninstalled libreoffice before reinstalling, whether from the TDF archives or the Debian repository. That said, there are a lot of packages to install and uninstall and I didn't pay attention to each of them.
Frequent crashing usually indicates a bad version of java. Java 6_21 seems to be the best for older versions of LibreOffice but i think you need the 7_3 (or around there, most recent is best).
Do you actually *need* Java? Or should I say, do I actually need Java to use libreoffice for my purposes. In any case, I don't think my crashes are related to Java because disabling Java in libreoffice settings never made any difference.

The TDF version of LibreOffice isn't detected by bibus. Which means no bibliography, which is pretty much a deal-breaker. So I played with the debian/testing version again, and managed to get it to not crash with my file by deleting my user profile. Then I rebuilt the profile... and it started crashing again. And now if I start again with a virgin profile, it still crashes. I tried to look at the source for bibus (it's all in python) to work out how it detects whether Libre/Open-Office is present, but don't know enough about the LibreOffice API to know what I'm really looking for. So I still have a basically unusable system. :( On 08/04/12 11:34, Tom Davies wrote:Hi :) Phew, i'm glad to hear you solved it. Presumably you copied the old User Profile to the new place to get your previous settings and Extensions back? You can always try the repo version another time and then perhaps do a parallel install after that maybe.

Can you download the TDF's official version instead of using one from the repos? http://www.libreoffice.org/download/?type=deb-x86〈=en-GBI have tried it now, and it works! Thank you very much. It messed with my desktop integration a little and put the configuration files in a different place, but when I'd worked that out it all looked good. I didn't bother with the parallel installation though, actually didn't notice that you'd shown me that link until it was too late. I guess I can go back to the debian distro when they get 3.4.6?Annoyingly the main downloads page tries to give me the .Rpm instead of the .Deb but also it lets you choose the more stable 3.4.6 instead of the 3.5.2.It worked for me, ie offered me the .deb installation. Cheers, Jonathan
