any problems with LibreOffice 6.1.3.2 ?

I am using LibreOffice 6.1.3.2 on Arch Linux.
When I try to 'Get Prices', nothing happens but the spreadsheet is still usable.
When I try to 'Get DL forecast yields', the soffice process spins at 100% and has to be killed.
I can repeat this behaviour with a clean, fresh spreadsheet containing BP.

I cleaned out the ~/.config/libreoffice configuration and enabled macros as normal.

I just tried HYPTUSS version b-i-1 with LibreOffice 6.1.3.2 on Windows 10 and it worked fine

I then tried my Ubuntu 18.04 on a Virtual Machine, updated LibreOffice to 6.1.3.2, set Macro Security to medium, then tried HYPTUSS version b-i-1 and it again worked fine.

Sorry, I don't have Arch Linux, but if you have ongoing problems, I might try installing it on a VM to have a play over the weekend.

Something else you might try....
I have built in a a data dump which has never really been used in anger but may help.

  1. Go to the Parameters sheet
  2. Unhide rows 2-10
  3. Change B9 from 0 to 1
  4. Run "Get DL Forecast Yields"
  5. DON'T DO ANYTHING ELSE!!
This will create a data dump HYPTUSS_log.txt
Send this file to me at the email address at the bottom of http://lemonfoolfinancialsoftware.weebly.com/

Make sure that you reset B9 to 0 after all this, otherwise everything you do will keep appending data to the log file and it will get VERY big!

Thanks for your help with this. The issue was eventually traced to a problem with the darned Wayland X server. Reverted to good old, reliable, trusted X-org and all was well again.

Excellent news!
At this very moment I'm in the middle of installing Arch Linux in a virtual machine to have a play. What an excruciatingly painful process! I think I'll stick with Linus Mint for normal use, a total doddle to install

Indeed Arch isn't exactly user friendly and I have discarded it a few times in exasperation. However, I have recently hopped back because I like
    - rolling distro
    - speedy (no bloat)
    - bleeding edge packages
    - AUR
    - documentation
