[Solved] New Install on OS 10.14.6, "Fatal Error"

Postby mrlynn » Fri Jan 22, 2021 10:15 pm

Installed OpenOffice on fresh install of MacOS 10.14.6. Trying to open, get "Fatal Error: The application cannot be started. An internal error occurred."

What's up (or down) with that?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

This is caused by Apple's Gatekeeper

I used the 'Open Anyway' option in the Mac's Security Settings, and OK'd after the additional warning. So I don't think it was the Gatekeeper.

Any other ideas?

Also posted at https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question ... tal-error/.
 Edit: To save others the time of reading it, that discussion found that the trouble was corruption of a MacOS user account, and not related to OpenOffice/LibreOffice.
