Description eivindmsollund 2024-02-06 18:38:14 UTC
On a clean install, LibreOffice goes in timeout every time I try to open a text file (docx) through LibreOffice, or when writer is selected after LibreOffice has started.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start LibreOffice. Program runs and I'm greeted with main menu.
2. Open Writer. Or open Writer through a docx file.

Actual Results:
Instantly freezes and the program is in timeout forever.

Expected Results:
Writer successfully starts, and I'm able to start typing.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
I am a first time user of LibreOffice and this is my first experience with LibreOffice.

The portable version works ...

I spoke too soon. Goes into timeout every time I try to open a file.
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2024-02-06 20:09:58 UTC
Does it happen only with docx files or also with odt files?
Is it specific to a peculiar docx file or even a docx file which would contain only "test" in it?

Could you give a try at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/FirstSteps#Graphics-related_issues_(_Skia_) ?
