I launch writer, go to help, go to "find" and type "select" in there and I get a huge list of pages.

Is this a language issue, i.e. what's the output of

$ locale

The behaviour is identical wether I select English(US) or Russian interface language.
Comment 4 Eugene Saenko 2012-06-11 10:58:30 EDT
When I start LO from consile I see:
[ses@ses-new ~]$ libreoffice --writer

(process:2381): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_hash_table_lookup: assertion `hash_table != NULL' failed
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2012-06-11 11:13:48 EDT
can't see how that glib assert would affect help, which works here (x86_64) in both English and Russian with a search term of select.

If you put your mouse over e.g. the "Bold" icon do you get the floating tooltip that describes it as a "Bold" feature ? (this stuff is connected to help, that's why I ask)
Comment 6 Eugene Saenko 2012-06-11 11:20:50 EDT
Yes I have this tooltip.

But my system is not x86_64 but i386.
Comment 7 Vasiliy Glazov 2012-06-18 07:19:47 EDT
I can confirm bug on x86_64.
Comment 8 Caolan McNamara 2012-06-18 11:04:04 EDT
"works for me"(tm).

Can you guys try this...

yum -y install strace
strace -f /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin > ~/strace.log 2>&1
make the "no search term dialog" appear and then attach the ~/strace.log to this bug

Comment 10 Eugene Saenko 2012-06-18 13:39:43 EDT
As my system is 32-bit the command line is like:
strace -f /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin > ~/strace.log 2>&1

CJKAnalyzer.class", 0xbf8f41a0) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

*groan*, I bet its a missing dependency on lucene-contrib :-(.

so try yum -y install lucene-contrib and see if that fixes it. If it does then I'll do an update to add that missing dependency.
Comment 12 Eugene Saenko 2012-06-18 14:11:57 EDT
After install lucene-contrib all plays OK :)
Thank you!
