Has anybody found a solution to this?
I'v tried removing all possible offending directories (~/.libreoffice, etc) and uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing seems to work. I still get the following as a regular user:
"The application cannot be started. A general error occurred while accessing your central configuration."
But it works when I start it as root.
I'm running kernel 3.3.2-6.fc16.x86_64, and libreoffice 126.96.36.199-12 (the latest with yum from updates repo).
