My screenshot = LO running in stock Porteus-XFCE
Base modules kernel,core,xorg are the same.
Something to try:
replace 003-lxde.xzm with the xfce module > reboot into "always fresh" mode >
activate the LO module ....report.
Thank you for the info and your advice! I, too, was heading in the same direction...
So, it turns out that it worked out perfectly in stock Porteus 4.0 i586 XFCE:
I took my time to test it also in my minimalistic Porteuses (after putting in the 03-xfce module in place of the 03-lxde) and it works perfectly there too!
So, the issue was definitely with 03-lxde.xzm and nothing else! Also to be noted: I experimented further with screenshot in stock Porteus 4.0 i586 LXDE, and it locks up the system (at least in my experience) each and every time! So the freezing up/locking up when using screenshot after running LibreOffice and getting an error wasn't at all related to LibreOffice but to LXDE. Interestingly enough, this issue did not take place in my minimalistic versions of LXDE, they are immune to it.
Now I have a working LibreOffice 6.4.6 (in 4.0 XFCE) and I am so glad! It is such a great program - many improvements have been made since the version I ran in Porteus 3.2.2.
But this also means that I wasted a tremendous amount of time and effort when trying (unsuccessfully) to compile LibreOffice in 4.0 LXDE, the problem being with LXDE also as far as LibreOffice compilation failure goes. I had gotten to a point where (after a substantial amount of research on the web), with a modified 05-devel module (the addition of gcc and gcc-g++ 9.2.0) and latest gperf-3.1 installed, modified LibreOffice 22.214.171.124 configuration files and a perfected set of configuration arguments, I almost completely succeeded in compiling it, but just before compilation completion I would get a fatal error more or less as follows (could not take a screenshot of it because the system at that point would lock up):
"0000 [#1] PREEMPT SMP
[listed loaded kernel modules]
[listed hardware description]
[listed about 15 traces related to hardware]
Kernel panic - not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt
Kernel offset: disabled
end kernel panic - not syncing:
Fatal exception in interrupt"
and the system would lock up, then needing a manual shutoff.
It reminds me of the "Fatal exception: Signal 6" error I get when attempting to run Alien's LibreOffice in LXDE.
My guess is that compiling LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 in Porteus 4.0 i586 XFCE would succeed where LXDE previously failed.
I am taking a break now (it was a lot of work over the past couple of weeks!), but I'll later come back to it and try again the compiling of a lean(er) and fast(er) LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 designed around barebone Porteus 4.0 i586 XFCE (meaning around just the basic modules kernel, core, xorg and xfce): without Java and with CUPS, Doxygen, Neon, etc. disabled, along the lines of my minimalism concept for older hardware.
EDIT: All this, though, begs the question: Why does it work with XFCE but not with LXDE? It would be a very interesting thing to know.
