I have just run upgrades, and am now at LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 on Kubuntu 17.10 . I found this thread because I had the "access was denied" issue.
My Thinkpad has original Windows 7 disk (where data is obviously stored on NTFS), and a mSATA on which I have a triple boot install (i.e. Kubuntu 17.10, Ubuntu 17.10 and Deepin Linux). On this "never fail" configuration, I should be able to invoke LibreOffice on any of the three Linux versions, or from Windows 7 (which I practically never do). I have now run: sudo ln -s /etc/apparmor.d/usr.lib.libreoffice.program.* /etc/apparmor.d/disable/ ... so LibreOffice works. So, I haven't stored my documents under $HOME/ since 2009, and have used similar configurations running back to Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows XP and multiboot. I am not a developer, and would describe myself as a "power user". I don't really understand apparmor, so I see this new change as something that could potentially disrupt any user who has multiple partitions on his or her computer. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1751005 Title: libreoffice cannot open a document not within $HOME To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/1751005/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
