I installed ALL this stuff using "ignore conflicts" in kpackage.
As I said, sxc,ods,doc files will work normally
rtf will crash it.
after this crash, for a time, the others will crash as well
this heals.

I can only edit a textual document if I run soffice.bin directly.
I can open the others after a crash by runnin soffice.bin directly so this is 
the crux.
