Description cec_beyler 2014-11-02 16:45:03 UTC
Lorsque je souligne sous libreoffice writer avec la souris, sous linux-ubuntu, l'ordinateur se plante (arrêt forcé obligatoire).
Sorry I can't explain those things in english :(

Translation: when highlighting with mouse on LO Writer (Ubuntu), the computer crashes (I must shut it down completely).

What's your Ubuntu version?
What's your LibreOffice version?
Does it happen on a brand new file or just some specific files?
Did you rename your LO directory profile and gave a new try? (see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#GNU.2FLinux)

I use last LTS ubuntu 64 bits version, I've try to change the official ubuntu libreoffice version to the last stable version on libreoffice site but I've got the same behaviour.

The crash appear randomly after a douzen of quick underline with mouse.

My hardware is intel i7 processor with 6Gb of ram
Comment 5 Julien Nabet 2014-11-11 11:11:13 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with 4.3.3 LO Debian package, I don't reproduce this.

Do you have any accessibility component enabled? If yes, could you disable them for the test?
Could you give a try to last stable LO version 4.3.3 by using LO ppa, see https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ubuntu/ppa ?

If you still reproduce this, could you try to retrieve a backtrace by using this link https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/BugReport/Debug_Information#GNU.2FLinux:_How_to_get_a_backtrace ?
