That's arguable of course. The expectation is that a vast majority of
users will have a default setup where they store their documents under
$HOME/, and for those the confinement provided by apparmor will be
useful and won't get in the way.

This can be discussed, of course, so I'm going to change the status of
this bug so the discussion can continue here. Please share compelling
arguments here.

  libreoffice cannot open a document not within $HOME

Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Starting with today's update to LibreOffice 40m0(Build:1),
  files not within the user $HOME directory cannot be opened. This has
  nothing to do with ownership or permissions - the target document is
  owned by the user with full permissions. Moving the file to ~/Desktop
  allows it to be opened normally.

  Error message in popup window:
    Access to /home2/mico/documents/personal/2018 lists.ods was denied.

  Error message when launched from terminal:
  $: localc "2018 lists.ods"
  javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
  Please ensure that a JVM and the package libreoffice-java-common is installed.
  If it is already installed then try removing 
  Warning: failed to read path from javaldx

  The file mentioned in the error message does not exist.
  I removed the corresponding file under ~/.libreoffice/4/ but that makes no 

  This but started in Ubuntu 18.04 (alpha) around Feb. 15, and with
  today's update (Feb. 22) it appeared in Ubuntu 17.10.
