Any attempt to connect via Open --> Remote files --> Add service --> Shared by Windows does not work for me, because crashes the LibreOffice.
After setting up my expected connection to a Windows share, after click on OK button a pop-up windows get open, informing that open files will be recovered. After clicking OK in this form, LibreOffice restarts and a widow asking to sent a crash report is opening.
I have tested this with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 and also with LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 with the same result.
I'm not quite sure whether this is really a bug or I just can not figure out how to make the link to work normally.
After doing what I could, trying out the help system and searching the Internet to figure out how to link LibreOffice from Linux to the Samba server, I could not find reliable information how exactly to do it to work as expected.
The connected Samba server and needed shares are perfectly accessible even by same LibreOffice 6.x via smb4k connections to same shares. My account on the Samba server has all needed rights to access write or read on the needed shares.
Let say the IP address of the needed Samba server would be 192.168.1.56
Trying to connect via the IP address of the Samba server is not good explained in the help system. So I do not know shall I put in the Host field some thing like "smb://192.168.1.56" or just like "//192.168.1.56" or some thing else?
In my case I have tested all possible variants I could imagine, but all such attempts lead to crash of the LibreOffice.
Also I could not understood what exactly is expected to put in the field Root. Shall it work if this field is empty? All my attempts to make connection with different correctly given roots (as far I could understood it) or with empty field did not help for establishing the needed connection to the tested Samba server.
Could you give a try to https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/FirstSteps?
Then if you still reproduce this, would it be possible you retrieve a backtrace?
1. latest fresh/still version requirement - done. Checked with latest release versions.
2. Corrupted user profile requirement - done.
Checked with erased user profile, also with initial default adjustments. All checked also in safe mode.
Even have deleted the user profile and checked again without such profile (it was created by LibreOffice during startup process)
3.Graphics-related issues (OpenGL) - done.
All possible CL even via script switched out, no any hardware speed-up and no any OpenGL
4.Computation-related issues in Calc (OpenCL) - not relevant. Same happens without Calc.
During all above crashes still available.
Please possibly instruct how to retrieve this backtrace?
During all these crashes I have got a lot of *.dmp crash reports in
Thank you for your feedback.
About backtrace, you'll find more info here:
It seems to me that LibreOffice has somewhere in the code hard-coded WORKGROUP. And it is trying to connects this way to the discussed Windows (Samba) shares.
But on this server where the connection is checked there is MYFILES instead of WORKGROUP.
Could it be some how a reason for the reported crashes?
Unfortunately the computer where this problem exists is production computer.
So setting debug mode on it is prohibited.
But I will try to create a minimal virtual machine with KDE and LibreOffice and try to check under debug mode there.
If the problem still exist there, then I could send you this virtual machine to check it in deep if you like.
But It will take a lot of time, so it could be done during the weekend at earlyest.
Also I am worrying how this could be achieved as minimal openSUSE Leap 15 will take around 15 Gb.
Searching in code with git grep -in workgroup, I don't find any "WORKGROUP".
I also checked the external lib libcmis.
Perhaps it's in another external lib.
Before trying anything on a virtual machine perhaps some other QA member or a dev may reproduce this.
As for me, I don't use Samba and don't use virtualization so can't help here, at least for this moment.

Just FYI (and for someone who'd decide to improve documentation): the host box gets a plain host name for Windows Share server type (like "DESKTOP-1234"); the fields are transformed *internally* to an URL like "smb://user@DESKTOP-1234/share". User does not need to specify protocol manually.

Dear all, Thank you for your information.
But here we have all computers on Linux.
Unfortunately most of howtos expect Windows, but Linux user base is growing and may be much bigger than official reporters like IDC are reporting for Linux.
Next weekend I will try this issue again and if will found some thing interesting, will report here.
