Description wkrekik 2017-02-08 08:39:31 UTC
With version, remote files function no more works. In any attempt to open a file or add an account, a “General input/output error.” message appears. 
I create a fresh LO profile, and try to create a google drive account : I was asked to enter my user name and password, then again my password, then I got the same error message box.
Remote files worked again after reverting to 5.2 

Xubuntu 16.04 32 bit, LO

I'm a bit busy with my every-day work, I'll have a look as soon as I can.

I'm having the same problem. File > Open Remote File > Add Service > Google Drive.

I enter my email and password, and then get the popup for my 6-digit code. I enter that, and then get "The specified device is invalid."

I also have this issue when I try to all a OneDrive account: File > Open Remote File > Add service > OneDrive. I enter my email and password, then go to the link provided, obtain the code per directions, and then receive the same "The specified device is invalid." message.

Arrival of 5.3 version has introduced significant bugs such as improper functioning of the remote files. You are requested to upload a version of this software as soon as possible which must remove all of such problems. I am writing on such bugs and thankful to https://edubirdie.net/terms source for providing me true assistance to write flawlessly.
