  • The command line soffice or loffice lock with no return, necessary to use CTRL+C to exit.

  • With icon soffice or writer, a popup with error :

"Impossible to launch the application."
Failed to updatefile:///home/cylere/.config/libreoffice/4/user/extensions/bundled/lastsynchronized

This file (lastsynchronized) have only the character 1 inside.

  • Sometime on the terminal
    (soffice:3567): Gdk-WARNING **: gdk_window_set_icon_list: icons too large

They are all messages I got, and LibreOffice don't start.

This appear from some time, but I could use soffice or loffice to start LOo, but after a recent upgrade, nothing works

In case it helps - I had the same issue (with the same warning) and solved it by deleting the folder .config/libreoffice. It got recreated when I launched libreoffice again. I'm sure I lost some settings but nothing important...
