Description Eric 2022-08-23 12:49:50 UTC
I tried to open a Powerpoint (pptx) file and I got this error:

-- Component cannot be loaded, possibly broken or incomplete installation.
-- Full error message:
-- loading component library
-- <file:///opt/libreoffice7.3/program/../program/libsdlo.so> failed
-- /home/buildslave/source/libo-core-cppuhelper/source/shlib.css:311

The program then exits.

I'm willing to accept that I have an incomplete installation, but there is no specific indication as to what I might be missing.

I don't know if it's an issue with my specific Powerpoint file, but ldd tells me:

$ ldd libsdlo.so
        libavahi-common.so.3 => not found
        libavahi-client.so.3 => not found

Do these need to be part of the installation package(s) ?  Or are they in a package that I don't have / missed / forgot / otherwise didn't install?

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run the command soffice MyPptFile.pptx

Actual Results:
Program displays a pop-up error.  When the error is acknowledged, the program exits.

Expected Results:
The program would open and display my file.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

You probably have a broken installation. Try uninstalling and reinstalling LibreOffice to see if the problem persists.

Your problem may also be related to bug 119408.

I don't know which Linux distro you're using but you could try downloading the binaries distributed by the LibreOffice website (deb and rpm available).

Thank you very much.  I acquired the avahi libraries and that resolved the issue.
