sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/icu-51.1-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz
Turns out that the icu upgrade is causing the problem - at least for me
In the meantime, downgrading icu gives me LibreOffice back.
good call, taking icu down the previous version (51.1-2) solves the problem for me, thanks!
Next build of libreoffice (4.0.3-3) seems to fix the icu problem.
At least from the changelog, the mirror is not synchronized yet so I cannot see for myself.
Any minute now...
Can confirm downgrading ICU has solved libreoffice crashing on splashscreen.
Can confirm upgrading libreoffice has solved libreoffice crashing on splashscreen.
If I'm curt with you it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this. So, pretty please... with sugar on top. Clean the [censored] car. -The Wolf
New build of LO fixes it.
