Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 785229
Attempts to open PPTX causes LibreOffice to instantly crash
Last modified: 2013-07-11 22:15:46 EDT
Description of problem:
If I open the (private attachment) PPTX attached here, LibreOffice instantly crashes.
Oddly, ABRT doesn't seem to pick up the crash at all, and I can't seem to get the application to output any kind of error log. Is there any kind of debug mode I could run LibreOffice in to get you more information?
I tried to open it using
/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/unoconv --format=odp -o output -v 'filename.pptx'
And did get a traceback of sorts:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/unoconv", line 801, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/unoconv", line 780, in main
File "/usr/bin/unoconv", line 690, in convert

No, there is not. Not in the 3.4 series, anyway.
I cannot reproduce the crash in 3.4.5 or anything newer. It might have been fixed by http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/filters/commit/?h=libreoffice-3-4-5&id=5c613fa40a60cbd2c2664783a0aaebee6dfc4309 , but https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=706792 mentioned in the commit message is not publicly accessible (grr, I could scream when I see such a useless reference...)
Could you re-test this with libreoffice-126.96.36.199-1.fc16 from updates testing?
Oh my goodness, that's amazing, the updates-testing version works perfectly. I'll look for it in Bodhi to give it good karma. thannk you *so much* for the quick reply and fix!!!
lets call it "modified"
libreoffice-188.8.131.52-1.fc16 has been pushed into stable -> closing
