Hi :)
Is it the Debian packagers that need to know about this?  I think they are the ones that choose 
which other packages are listed as dependencies of packages in their repos?
Regards from
Tom :)

Thanks for the replies, they've been really helpful. Yes it is failing with
the latest version of Libreoffice and works with the latest version of AOO.

I am also not able to install an X server, but I could drill down what's
causing the issue. It seems the issue is the package dependency of Debian

I have selectively installed the Debian packages I want, like calc, writer
etc, and their dependencies. I haven't used any command like force and if
the package required an another package, I installed it too. However, when
using strace I've seen a couple of missing files, which come with other

My current list of installed packages;


The missing package was libobasis3.5-en-us_3.5.3-2_amd64.deb. I re-checked all these installed 
packages and none of them has a dependency to that file.   It now seems an obvious file to install 
but since I trusted the dependency system, I missed it.

Now it is working correctly. Should I file a bug report to the bugzilla? 

Thanks for your help,

I tried to install those dependencies but it is now silently failing and giving no output 
whatsoever. I tried to debug it with my poor gdb skills, but gdb log is saying;

Program exited with code 0115.
No stack.

Presumably the code is intentionally exiting, so to gdb it's a normal (clean) process exit.

By the way, I have installed openoffice, and it's soffice is working
correctly, but I'd like to use libreoffice if possible.

If I can debug and see why it is failing, I can do so, but I don't know how to.

And of course, it's even more difficult given that you're trying to use
it headless.  Been there, done that, got the tee shirt ...

Is there any way you can arrange to temporarily use it with an X
server?  It doesn't have to be locally on the same machine, though
that's most efficient.  But you can just point LO at a remote server,
or through an ssh proxy (-X) to your client host.  The issue might be
something simple that results in a dialog/question when a UI is
present but has to terminate abruptly without since the dialog can't
be answered.

If not, first thing I'd probably look for is any sort of problem with
the profile folder, such as access rights.  If the account you are
trying to run this under isn't dedicated just to LO, I'd also
recommend explicitly specifying a dedicated profile folder
("-env:UserInstallation") for best control.

What's the exact command line you are using?  I didn't see a
"--norestore" in your prior note, so in the (unlikely) case you have a
pending restoration I'm not quite sure what happens in headless mode if it's set to prompt.
