Latest AOO on Fedora 27 x86_64

jd1008
Hi all,
1. I first UNINSTALLED LibreOffice, only to find 2 mate desktop packages
depend on some libreoffice package. So, now I have something slightly
broken in my dnf database.

2. In downloaded AOO, and I installed it without any problems.

3. from the command line, I executed /usr/bin/soffice which is a symlink to
    /opt/openoffice4/program/soffice
4. Nothing happens. NOTHING!!!! Waited for many minutes. Nothing!!!

So, what do you suggest I do?

P.S: on older fedora releases, I had no such problem.

Unfortunately we can't do anything about broken distributions...

Maybe this thread will help you:
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=91704&p=436895#p436875

It looks like "gdk-pixbuf2-xlib" is missing on your system (for whatever
reason).

Kind regards, Matthias

JD,

Are you trying to run AOO from a shell command line or in an xterm
inside your desktop?

If the former, keep in mind AOO requires a desktop (xfce, kde, etc) to
run under (unless you are trying to run as "headless"). I don't know
what AOO will do running from a shell command line without a desktop and
without the headless option.

I checked my Slackware Linux system and there is no soffice symlink in
/usr/bin. I did find a /usr/bin/openoffice4 script which runs
/opt/openoffice4/program/soffice "$@". So you might try running
/usr/bin/openoffice4 instead of /usr/bin/soffice.

Try running openoffice4 from an xterm in your desktop and see if there
are any messages spit out on the xterm. If so, the message may give you
a hint.

HTH.

This posting on the OO Forum gives a solution for running OO 4.1.5 on Fedora 27.  It may be of assistance.

Sorry - my previous posting got away before it was fully written and was also Cc'd to the wrong poster.  I have now sent the correct reply to the OP and the list.  Apologies!

No worries. The missing lib is now installed and all is well!
And yes, you CAN invoke soffice from the command line, as long as the DT
is running.

Not really. A lib was missing, and after I installed, all is now well.

Can you confirm that the solution is the same as outlined at
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=124948#c5 ?

In that case, we'll probably want to add it to the Release Notes as a
reference for people who experience the same issue in the future.

Regards,
   Andrea.

​Hi Andrea,
I confirm that after installing ​
 libgdk_pixbuf_xlib-2
​the problem was fixed.
