Instant Deadlock Exploit

Hello Comrades!,

I write again to inform you a way to make parrot OS hang with a simple oneliner:

firejail --noprofile libreoffice --base %U , Replace --base with anything reasonable for the same result?

Libreoffice STILL fails to work properly, Even without the firejail sandbox. This is dissapointing…

- Keepnote has also been behaving badly since I doubt anyone uses it so it should be removed or fixed since there is a TON of notetaking applications on parrot; Examples include vim, VScodium, pluma, Qownnotes. Output logs below:

└──╼ $keepnote

You cannot create pages, Modify or open anything. It’s pretty much a useless window running in the background.

It would be nice to get rid of the excess text editors to save distro space, Thank you!

firejail --noprofile libreoffice --base without %U also seems to hang parrot os :frowning:

This doesn’t happen for me. I am able to use the libreoffice --base option with or without firejail and it works fine.

I would try reading the logs and seeing if you can discover why its crashing.

didnt happen for me either :thinking:

Try updating to latest release @0xff10AD and maybe it would solve the crash since a im running on latest update and the bug you mentioned didnt work for me…


I will open a new issue on keepnote.

It should be firejail problem. It finds criticle activities and it doesn’t allow apps run properly

It is a Firejail issue… Has been since the last release! Waiting for a new release as know body seems to have a permanent fix!
