Any time I tried to start any application of LibreOffice, it just display the splash screen and freezes at that point. The only possible solution is Hard Reboot.

Anyone have and idea of what the problem could be.

Dell Laptop Intel Corei3 UBUNTU 11.04 Upgrade everything from 10.10 so it replaces OpenOffice 4 Gb Ram

I tried uninstall all LibreOffice and install again, and the same problem comes up.

Thank you in advance for your help

You could start it from the console:

sh -x /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice

and see what happens exactly... maybe this helps to find your Problem.

Not a solution to your problem per-say but instead of hard-rebooting your PC which is generally considered to be bad for it (actually I've never looked into why this is?) you could try pressing CTRL-ALT-F1, this will take you down to run-level 1, log-in and run the command "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart" this will effectively restart the gnome display manager, so if its just a graphics crash the computer will return to the log in screen in about 3 seconds, it saves hard rebooting your PC.
