I was running into the same issue after the latest upgrade of 17.10 and
libreoffice, and I tried a couple of things that have both failed. I
have my libreoffice files sitting on FAT filesystem that I mount in
fstab. Earlier I was mounting it at /data which I changed to /mnt/data.
Yet I am unable to open my files (now under /mnt/data) in libreoffice. I
also tried another trick of soft linking my Documents folder under
/mnt/data to ~/Documents, and when I navigate via ~/Documents to open a
file in libreoffice it gives the same access denied problem.
