Try running "libreoffice --base" in a terminal window, and see if that
gets you viable error messages. I just tested it, and it did bring up
the Database Wizard.

It's just something I picked up along the way about how Libreoffice
opens each feature. "--calc" gets the k/t for having taught me that a
long time ago and most likely via a right click over an Applications
menu entry... or something similar.. a long time ago... :)
