Description jason.wallace 2014-04-08 14:28:39 UTC
Problem description: 

I'm running Linux Mint Petra with KDE, and just recently pulled the latest libreoffice release (4.2.3.3 420m0(Build:3)). Now when I launch any Libreoffice application from the launcher, it freezes. 

The issue seems to be with the %U flag in the command to run libreoffice. Running "libreoffice" from command line works fine; running "libreoffice %U" throws the error "/current/directory/%U does not exist" (where /current/directory/ is wherever I happen to type the command). If I remove the "%U" from my launcher shortcut, the program opens fine again.


Steps to reproduce:
1. Open console
2. Launch any libreoffice application with the %U option

Current behavior:
Libreoffice freezes and/or crashes when launched with the %U option

Expected behavior:
Launches normally


PS: I couldn't find the exact versions under the dropdown options, so chose as close as I could find.
Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: 4.2.3.1 rc

What's the %U option?

FWIW, LibreOffice does seem to freeze/hang if one runs 'libreoffice %U'.

Please change the status back to UNCONFIRMED after you explain the intended purpose of the %U switch.


Status -> NEEDINFO

Don't type '%U', write *the URL* of the document you want to open. Report back.
