Hello Devs.

I have installed like suggested on https://www.collaboraoffice.com/code/. I chose the ubuntu 16.04 variant. I ran into a problem this morning. No process is listening on port 9980. Reason: missing libxrender.so.1. There is:


But i had to symlink it to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ to get all working.

Actual Results:  
no process on 9980

Expected Results:
process running on 9980

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Noticed the same today on Debian stable. Installing the package "libxrender1" did the trick without any need of doing some symlinks.

P.S. I have updated the bugreport and set the correct project (LibreOffice Online) for it.

Yes, libxrender1 was set as a dependency indirectly through another package that has become obsolete for online. As a fix it was now added as a direct dependency, and the issue will be fixed with the next update. Thanks for the bug report!
