Just a suggestion here, try temporarily renaming your configuration folder (mine is in ~/.config/libreoffice/4-suse/) in case the clash is occurring there.

My OS is Debian Stretch.  My version of LibreOffice is 1:5.2.7-1+deb9u4 from the stretch-backports depository.

Just now when I tried to open LO I received the following message:

The application cannot be started.
[context = "shared"] caught unexpected folder exists
and overwrite forbidden

Can anybody tell me what this message means and how to fix whatever needs to be fixed so that I can use LibreOffice again?

I cannot think of what must have been done since I last closed LO.  If it was something I could have done, I am not conscious of having done so.

Regards, Ken
