[Bug 1174374] Re: libreoffice-calc crashes/hangs desktop on Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 when opening a .xlsx file



> In that case; did you try my instructions

Actually, really strange, the bug just disappeared.  Even with the Intel
graphics, I cannot crash X11 any more.  Therefore, I cannot try that fix
any more, either.

I didn't even change anything, but here is what may have "fixed" the
problem: My machine (Lenovo W500) has two graphics cards, Intel and ATI.
I usually use Intel.  To troubleshoot this issue, I changed to ATI (via
BIOS).  After changing back to Intel, the bug was gone from my system.

I don't think the reboot did it, as I rebooted before, which didn't fix
the problem.  Maybe by booting with ATI, some X11 configuration files
were changed, that for whatever reason prevented this bug from
materializing, even after switching back to Intel.

Anyway, thanks for looking into this, and for giving such a prompt

  libreoffice-calc crashes/hangs desktop on Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 when
  opening a .xlsx file

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I installed Ubuntu 12.10 several months ago, but LibreOffice was
  entirely unusable. Whenever I opened a document, spreadsheet, etc. it
  would crash or hang the desktop. I waited for Ubuntu 13.04, hoping
  that this would be resolved, but the issue is the same. Has anyone
  else seen this? Any hints for getting past this? Or do I need to go
  back to 12.04?
