I recently switched from Ubuntu to Fedora and made a clean install of Fedora 26.

then i removed the built-in office and installed package downloaded from official website of Libre office. The installation was clean without any error. After then when I open Libre office It just crashes as soon as the opening graphics are displayed. Same happens when I open Writer and calc too. Kindly help me with solving this.

I have made the system update and the OS is up to date.

Remove or rename $HOME/.config/libreoffice and try again.

@sulthan90 open a terminal and run mv ~/.config/libreoffice ~/.config/libreoffice.bak

Hi sulthan90,

I feel your pain. This is how I fix it in the past. It may work for you too.

1) Open a terminal in your home directory

2) rename your libreoffice profile $ mv .config/libreoffice .config/libreoffice.000

3) retry opening LibreOffice

Let us know the results.
