I’m on Debian Testing with LibreOffice 22.214.171.124.0 40m0(Build:2) and it’s working, try another LibreOffice version, check this thread Linux questions thread they recommend to downgrade libharfbuzz, but i think it’s better to use another LibreOffice version while bug it’s fixed.
I found another thing can help you, maybe the program configuration it’s corrupted, try: cd ~/.config && mv libreoffice libreoffice.old
And then try to run it again.
it turns out that I can run /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin
as root without problems, but if I run it as a normal user, it gives the Application error message.
Probably the menu launcher has different permissions?
Launching with gdb gives
(gdb) backtrace #0 0x00002aaaafb3cfff in raise () at /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 #1 0x00002aaaafb3e42a in abort () at /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6 #2 0x00002aaaaf8e2c7a in () at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libuno_sal.so.3 #3 0x00002aaaaf8dda52 in () at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libuno_sal.so.3 #4 0x00002aaaac1a40d3 in () at /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/libmergedlo.so #5 0x00002aaaadf41c7f in psp::PrintFontManager::convertSfntName(void*) () at /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/libmergedlo.so
Don’t know if this gives some indications to where the problem comes from.

I can install it with sudo apt-get libreoffice, and go back to the previous situation.
If however I do then
sudo apt-get install libreoffice*, I get the following unmet dependencies:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: libreoffice-core : Breaks: libreoffice-kde (< 1:5.4.1-1) but 1:5.2.7-1 is to be installed libreoffice-gtk : Depends: libreoffice-common (= 1:5.2.7-1) but 1:5.4.1-1 is to be installed libreoffice-kde : Depends: libreoffice-core (= 1:5.2.7-1) but 1:5.4.1-1 is to be installed libreoffice-style-oxygen : Depends: libreoffice-common (= 1:5.2.7-1) but 1:5.4.1-1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
In fact, the installed verison of LibreOffice is LibreOffice 126.96.36.199.0 40m0(Build:2)
for some reason, libreoffice-gnome was not installed, I installed it, and it also installed libreoffice-gtk3 libreoffice-style-tango, but the result is still that I can not run soffice from the commandline as normal user (as su it works, and also if I use the Gnome Applications Menu.
user@librem:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/ green main deb-src http://repo.puri.sm/pureos/ green main deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian stretch main contrib non-free # deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org stretch main non-free
If I remember correctly, the debian non-free I need to activate bluetooth. Could that interfere with my LibreOffice-installation?
