Description Tim 2017-02-16 23:55:35 UTC
I am a competent computer user, with professional CAD and Adobe programs. I wont to get away from MS Word (it is such a donkey).
I download LibreOffice and try to install. Drag LibreOffice icon onto Applications.
When I try to launch LibreOffice I get a verification with a progress bar. The bar finishes, but nothing happens. After about 10 minutes, still nothing. I dismiss the static verification.
I try to launch LibreOffice from Applications and it doesn't launch. The computer slows and seizes up. The The Finder doesn't work properly. I have to restart.

I am using an iMac with:
OSX version 10.10.5.
Processor 2.8 GHx Intel Core i5
Hard disk has 1.71 TB available

Had to resort to `xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/LibreOffice.app` in a terminal to be able to launch it.
