With some certain files, my LibreOffice impress crashes every time when I click the show button. I started LibreOffice in the terminal in order to catch some error message. I got the following report:
soffice.bin: cairo-ft-font.c:576: _cairo_ft_unscaled_font_create_internal: Assertion `unscaled->base.hash_entry.hash == key.base.hash_entry.hash' failed.
It seems that it has something to do with fonts. I did some tests and found that it is the Chinese font “黑体” from MS powerpoint that caused the crash. The solution is to copy windows’ fonts to LO’s config directory.
- create a new folder ” fonts ” under
- copy all files from
