Description Eugen Dedu 2016-10-10 19:49:04 UTC
I create a simple odp file, let's say 1 slide with 1 word inside.

I want to batch some processing, so I use command line to convert to pdf like this:
loffice --convert-to pdf file.odp

When Impress is running, the above command does not work, i.e. no file is generated.
If I quit Impress, the above command works as expected, i.e. it does generate file.pdf.

Otherwise said, the above command works iff loimpress is not running.

It might be fixed in 5.3: bug 37531

You can try: http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@70-TDF/current/

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED DUPLICATE of bug 37531, if the problem went away.

I tested with version 5.3.2 and the bug is fixed.  Thank you very much for the fix.
