With gnome-documents from the GNOME3 Staging PPA, gnome-documents crashes for me on startup.

When I ran it from the command line, I saw this error:
WARNING **: Failed to load shared library 'liblibreofficekitgtk.so' referenced by the typelib: liblibreofficekitgtk.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I uninstalled gir1.2-lokdocview-0.1 (recommended by gnome-documents; apparently nothing else in Ubuntu currently uses this package) and gnome-documents ran fine.

A workaround (in the gnome-documents package) has now been uploaded to the GNOME3 Staging PPA for xenial.

I was not able to duplicate this bug with gnome-documents 3.18.2-1 in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
