Description of problem:
Unable to start LibreOffice. When I run one of the LibreOffice application I get the following error:
/usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libicudata.so.57: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just run LibreOffice (e.g. oocalc) inside your desktop environment.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in your desktop environment
2. Run "oocalc"
The application crashes on start with the following error:
/usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: libicudata.so.57: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
The application should start and run without error.
My system if Fedora 28 x86_64.
I've also tried:
1. to run LibreOffice both inside XFCE (my primary desktop environment) and inside GNOME Shell, and
2. to downgrade to LibreOffice v. 18.104.22.168-1.fc28
but without success.
For those like me that need to use Libreoffice urgently: flatpak is your friend.
1. Install flatpak (it should already be shipped with Fedora):
$ sudo dnf install flatpak
2. Install the Flathub repo (the option '--user' just install in your home dir so that you don't need root permissions):
$ flatpak remote-add --user --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
3. Install Libreoffice from flathub:
$ flatpak install --user flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice
4. Enjoy your sandboxed LibreOffice installation:
$ flatpak run org.libreoffice.LibreOffice
Oops, I've just realized that this problem is due to a local installation of Boost libraries (that I've compiled before upgrading from Fedora 27 to 28 and installed in my home directory).
By erasing this installation LibreOffice works without problems.
Sorry for this false alarm. I close this bug report.
