libreoffice4.0 launched with --strace
I have both libreoffice 3.6.4 and 184.108.40.206 installed on my system.
Libreoffice 3.6.4 works like a charm.
When launching libreoffice4.0 command it answers : "no suitable windowing system found, exiting." and nothing else.
I'm running on Centos 5.9 (2.6.18-348.1.1.el5) 64 bits with Xfce 4.4.2. SELinux is disabled.
Same problem running libreoffice 4.0 on sled 10 x86
No problem with libreoffice 220.127.116.11 build 2sf5aff
The same error with Oracle Linux 5.7 and kde 3.5.4 on i386
LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 works fine
It looks like libreoffice4.0 can't found libpixman-1.so.0 library file.
LibreOffice3.6 has own /opt/libreoffice3.6/program/libpixman-1.so.0 in libobasis3.6-core01-22.214.171.124-2*.rpm. LibreOffice4.0 has just libpixman-1.so (no .0 suffix).
LibreOffice4.0 starts successfully after making symlink libpixman-1.so.0 to libpixman-1.so manually:
ln -s libpixman-1.so libpixman-1.so.0
I went to the same conclusion. Installing libpixman from source (http://www.cairographics.org/releases/) does work.
Your solution to create the missing link is quicker and better I think. Thanks.
Please is it possible to include this link into the installation procedure ?
