On pc Debian testing x86-64, LO Debian package is and works ok. 

Do you use Debian testing, stable, sid?
How did you install LO? From Debian package repo?
Comment 2 naresh 2014-09-01 06:03:27 UTC
Yes i have installed it from debian package from the link

I have tried to install various version of 4.2 but nothing works. Same

(please don't answer directly from your emailer but from bugzilla).

In general Linux packages are for packagers. Could you give a try with apt (or one of its frontend) and Debian repositories?

Rene: Thought you might be interested in this one so put you in cc.
Comment 4 naresh 2014-09-02 03:19:35 UTC
I need to install through packages. I need it in my script which works offline. 

PS:Through apt it is working fine, but i need the debian package installer.

Are you still having this problem with LibreOffice 5?
Did you use these instructions: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Install/Linux

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
