Kubuntu 12.10 cu KDE 4.9.4
Crash to open Bibliographic Database by Tools
Could you tell what's your Java version?
Do you have any warning/error message on console?
Could you retrieve a backtrace (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport#How_to_get_a_backtrace_.28on_Linux.29)
No feedback since months, I put it as WFM.
Lucian: if you reproduce this with a newer LO version, don't hesitate to reopen this tracker and please, provide information asked in my previous comment.
Probably a duplicate of bug 33266 : Writer crashes when bibliography database selected, when Base isn't installed
Indeed (K)Ubuntu does not install the Base module by default.
Best regards. JBF
