I suspect it doesn't start and there's no output when running it as user
in a terminal emulation, at least this is how I'm interpreting the
original request [1]. As we can see libreoffice was launched from the
user's account (seemingly on KDE) and the user pushed Ctrl+C to exit it
and there are no messages between launching and exiting. Perhaps the OP
doesn't ask the smart way, maybe it's the wrong mailing list and likely
gdb output would be useful, no cross-posting would be better either, but
IMO it's quiet understandable what the OP experiences. I assume the
OP's mail's header provides info about the kernel, KDE, unfortunately
not about the version of libreoffice.
