Description Oliver Bailey 2020-04-16 12:44:23 UTC
I have used LibreOffice for many years. I have never had a problem installing until version 6.4 on a Debian 10 machine with Kernel When I install, using sudo the applications install fine, but when I go to execute them, they fail to start. The owner and group of the executable's is root - root. I uninstalled them and attempted to install them without using sudo and get a permissions error if sudo isn't used. This is a recent update to Debian, and I do have 6.3 running on other systems successfully. This is the first time I have tried to install 6.4 from the x86_64 download new.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download current release to standard download folder and extract.
2.change to folder containing extracted debs. "sudo dpkg -i *.deb
4.Execute any program from menu.

Actual Results:
Programs install. Uninstalled and reinstalled without sudo, install will not begin without root permission to execute installers and create folders for programs.

Expected Results:
Programs installed, proper menu icons were created under office menu. Programs just fail to start.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Programs should execute if installation instructions are followed properly.

Rene: thought you might be interested in this one since it concerns Debian.
(Usually I advise using LO packages from distrib repository)
Comment 2 Rene Engelhard 2020-04-16 17:45:41 UTC exists on Debian 10. (and yes, works of course.)
