Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 830810
The search in LibreOffice help systen doesn't work (missing dependency on lucene-contrib)
Last modified: 2012-06-27 23:44:31 EDT
Description of problem:
The search in help system for any text in help system of LibreOffice brings up the same result: "No topics found."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Build ID: 350m1(Build:2)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start LibreOffice Writer.
2. Select LibreOffice Help in menu.
3. Go to tab Find.
4. Type "select" inthe field "Search term" and press the button "Find".
"No topics found."
List of topics, containing the word "select".
In vanilla LibreOffice all works as expected.
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

The behaviour is identical wether I select English(US) or Russian interface language.
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
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)
Yes I have this tooltip.
But my system is not x86_64 but i386.
I can confirm bug on x86_64.
"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

trace on 32-bit system
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.
After install lucene-contrib all plays OK :)
will be fixed in >= libreoffice-18.104.22.168-4.fc17
