Debian Multimedia :: Open Office 4 Installation - Can't Open Display

Feb 15, 2016

I installed Open Office 4 on Debian 8 but when I run the program I get this error message.

root@localhost:/home/paul# openoffice4
No protocol specified
No protocol specified
/opt/openoffice4/program/soffice.bin X11 error: Can't open display:
Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option
or check permissions of your X-Server
(See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details)

Open Office works fine when I run the command "startx" in the Konsole but so far I haven't been able to configure it.

Debian Multimedia :: When Open An Open Office Document From An NFS Share It Always Opens As Readonly

Apr 27, 2010

When I open an open office document from an NFS share it always opens as readonly. This was a problem I had on Arch linux and the fix was to change the locking options in the soffice script but I've tried that fix here and it doesn't work. I've seen a lot of discussions but they all go back to changing the locking options in soffice, has anyone got any alternative fixes or one that definitely works with locking?

Ubuntu :: Open Office Won't Display .docx Images

Nov 14, 2010

I'm using 10.10 dual booted with xp and I'm trying to get images that are part of a docx file to open with OO 3.2 in ubuntu

They view fine on xp using OO 3.2 but windows being windows, it won't talk to my printer so I can't print. When I load up ubuntu and OO, the images just aren't there. The rest of the document looks the same however. Am I missing a file in ubuntu or is there a workaround for this?

Fedora :: Fonts Display In Open Office Writer - Creating Keyboard Layouts

Jan 16, 2010

1. Does Fedora 12 support ICU 4.4 Development Milestone 3 (ICU 4.3.3) with Unicode 5.2 full integration.(M3) ?

Microsoft's Uniscribe (usp10.dll) actually does not, neither in Windows XP nor in Windows 7. Will say is it possible to display complex scriptures like Devanagari, Avestan, Arabic etc. in Open Office Writer 3.1.1 via Fedora 12?

2. Is there any feature in Fedora 12 to build one's own Keyboard Layouts (like Microsoft's, Keyboard Layout Creator which isn't able to create Keyboard Layouts using Unicode Ranges bigger than U+ffff)?

Ubuntu :: Open/Libre Office And Microsoft Word: Text Spacing And Display

Aug 6, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 and Open Office 3.2.1. I guess that this problem may affect Libre Office too, but I will be happy to be proved wrong about that. I am editing a document that was originally produced in Microsoft Word (the standard .doc format). It is a form produced by a national organisation and it has to be sent back to them, and when submitted it has to be no longer than two A4 pages. It contains a series of headings and (expanding) text boxes for content.

In order to be sure about the length, I did most of the editing with Microsoft Word on my wife's laptop. On that machine, and on a PC that has a different version of Word, the document fits exactly within the two-page limit. But on my laptop, using Open Office, it appears considerably longer, taking up two-and-a-half pages. Why is this, and can anything be done to correct it? Open Office appears to be using the same fonts as Microsoft Word - the font names are the same, anyway - and the font sizes are the same, yet the text appears to take up more of the page display.

Debian :: Removing Open Office Completely?

Aug 21, 2011

Libre Office can be removed from Ubuntu 11.04 without making a mess of an installation but when I began ot attempt the same with Debian I was concerned it would take too much necessary stuff with it requiring a fresh install. I use Abiword and don't need Open Office. Can it be removed somehow cleanly? How would I do this? I partly want to do this as there seem to be a lot of Open Office-related Updates which is waste of my Mobile Broadband limit.I am using Debian 6.01, 64 bit Gnome edition.

Ubuntu :: Libre Office: Can It Read Open Office Documents

Mar 28, 2011

I just found out about Libre Office. I am currently using Open Office on my Netbook (ubuntu 10.10), and NeoOffice on my Macbook (OS/X 10.6.7).

QUESTION: I have some backups using these formats: .sdw, and .odt. Can Libre Office read documents saved in these (StarOffice / Open Office) formats?

FWIW: I would have preferred to use OO on both machines, but unfortunately OO never fixed a problem with printing envelopes in the Macintosh version. Hence my use of NeoOffice.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update To Open Office Not In The Channel?

Mar 12, 2010

I just checked [Mar. 12, 2010 16h:00 EDT], there is no update in the (Canonical) channel for Open Office. I regularly download updates both automatically as well as manually, Yet my current version is:

OpenOffice 3.1.1
OOO310m19 (Build:9240).
On my mac OSX 10.6.2, I already have 000320m12 (Build:9483).

Why is Canonical taking so long to place the newer version in the channel? My reason for seeking the update is to try and resolve a problem that I have just noticed today. I have not needed to print envelopes since January, and now I find that printing envelopes on my HP C4345 multifunction no longer works as before.

Instead of putting the output on the RIGHT side (where the envelope is fed), OO is consistently sending the output to the LEFT side (easily confirmed by placing a standard letter size sheet in place of the #9 envelope, which (the latter) invariably comes out as "blank" (no print on it).

I am hoping that an update will resolve this issue before I resort to submitting a bug report.

Ubuntu Installation :: After Update Open Office Is Gone And Cannot Reintsall?

May 5, 2010

I am using Ubuntu Hardy via the Dell Mini. Quite awhile ago I upgraded my OO to the newest lpia version I could find...I cannot recall, but I did it "manually" by adding the launchpad repository etc.

Yesterday I noticed that my update manager was flashing at me and telling me I had updates and so I let it update. Afterwards I noticed that my Open Office would not fact it was almost as if it was uninstalled. It was nowhere to be found. So, I thought maybe my update got messed up and I ran it again with update manager - no changes. reinstall OO. I first tired "Add/Remove" and I got an error as soon as I clicked on the box next to the suite: "This application conflicts with other installed software. conflicting software must be removed...switch to Synaptic" When I mark for intsallation I get the pop up for "Mark additional required changes" which I say yes too and then another error:

"Could not mark all packages for installation or upgrade. The following packages have unresolvable dependencies. Make sure all required repositories are added and enabled in the preferences"

It then lists about 10 packages such as " etc etc

I know I have the repositories chosenand I believe they are enabled: hardy main hardy main (Source Code)

I have both installed, but since LO is going to be the way Ubuntu goes for office applications, can I easily have my system setup for native LO? Native being if I double clock on a .doc file it will start up LO's Write program instead of OO.Will just removing OO achieve this or is there an easier way? I looked for file associations and didn't find it.

OpenSUSE :: Root Trying To Open Flashplayer In KDE Getting Cannot Open Display

Feb 18, 2011

We have a digital signage appliance built on SUSE 11.3 with a LAMP server that uses the flashplayer application to play a .swf file from localhost. It is a AOpen GP7A mini pc that has the nVidia drivers loaded. We have lots of customers that have been running the exact same system for over 6 months (we image the drive for each sale).

For some reason, my last customer is seeing the following problem shown below, and this linux configuration is way over my head. Everything else is working (local LAMP server is working, communicating with our production servers to get information works, etc). I have verified that it is screen 0 that is running (at least it shows with Ctrl-Alt-F7). I thought that it may have occurred because of updating the software with zypper up. I had the customer rebuild from the image being careful not to upgrade the software. The result was the same. The pc is a newer version compared to my bench pc, but there are multiple other customers running that same version just fine. So I am not sure if it is

The command is issued by a php script that is run in a root cron job. As I said, it works great on all other customer pc's including my bench system. I also tried to execute the command on a ssh terminal as the root user with the same result. I also upgraded my bench pc and it still worked properly.

The command being executed is sudo env DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/home/svision/.Xauthority flashplayer http://localhost/flash/sign.swf &

the result (when run in terminal) is: No protocol specified (flashplayer:15077): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

Debian Multimedia :: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 Keyxhost: Unable To Open Display ":0"

Aug 19, 2011

i recently moved from Ubuntu to Debian(squeeze).. i am very pleased with squeeze except for this bug..I have this python script i wrote to change my wallpaper (through Gconf), the script would be called by cron from time to time.The problem i am facing in Debian is that this script stopped working.I am exporting the $DISPLAY=:0 in Cron, (this is how it worked in Ubuntu)..the cron job i used is below:

* * * * * export DISPLAY=:0 && /path/to/my/

so the above was not running...I redirected the output and this is what i got as error:
