General :: Open Office Document Must Run Under Win32

Dec 18, 2010

I wrote a short story about using computers using Open Office. I saved a copy to my usb drive. When I tried to open it again it was all garbled code. One line of text said: must run under Win32. I can't find Win32 and I cant read my story now. How do I run this thing in Win 32? What does that mean? Do I open Win32 first then Open Office. Or the other way around. Anybody out there know? eeepc900 xandros

General :: Open Office Document Conversion Uses 100% CPU

Sep 5, 2011

When I try to convert a word document using the ooextract python script from open office like

/usr/local/bin/ myDocument.doc myDocument.pdf

the open office deamon (sOffice.bin) takes 100% CPU load forever.

We are using Open Office 2.6.3 on a virtual machine running debian squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64


We found out that this appears only with our test document, other documents can be converted without problem. But how can we find out what's wrong with our document. How can we enable traces/loggin o the sOffice.bin process?

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?

Fedora :: Print A Document Out From Open Office?

Jul 6, 2009

I just recently upgraded my Fedora 6 to Fedora 10 on a brand new laptop. Unfortunately, everytime I try to print the apps freeze up. For example, I was trying to print a document out from Open Office and I chose FILE->PRINT. The print dialog box pops up but it remains grey and doesnt do anything.

Software :: Open Office - Change Document BG Color?

Aug 3, 2010

I'm running Open Office 3.2.0. Does anybody know how to change the background color of an entire Open Office document? I know that you can change the background of a page in the Format >> Page menu, but this does not change the color of the page area inside the margins. Normally it wouldn't make much sense to change the background color when it just gets print to a page anyway. But I actually wanted to export the document to PDF, and was thinking it would make the PDF look better if I could pick the BG color.

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 :: Switching From Open Office To Libre Office?

Apr 22, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Get KDE Office Instead Of The Regular Open Office?

Sep 14, 2010

Sometime ago I realized my Open Office had changed, I don't remember having done anything in particular but today it isn't the regular open office but what I believe is a KDE version or idk. The theme changed and instead of regular menus I get "window" menus, in the sense that they get effects as regular windows. It's hard to explain it.


I tried uninstalling it and installing open office and also in the soft center open office is more than once, but I tried the different versions and I still get the same problem.

Ubuntu Servers :: Document Repository Application - Replace An Office File Server

Feb 9, 2011

I'm trying to replace an office file server. I would like to avoid just another samba share.

I'm looking for a document repository, a bit more functionality than a plain samba share and very cross-platform.

I've looked a couple minutes at dspace, but that seems like a lot of work just configuring it. Dropbox would be fine except that they only have up to 100g, and it's off-site.

This is NOT for unauthenticated public use.

Here are some features I have in mind:

1. Web front end.
2. Any file format from a one-line text document to a Microsoft Word document to an ISO of a blu-ray disk to a very large database backup, binary or text.
3. Cross-platform clients, mostly Mac.
4. Authenticated via centralized one-login server or maybe by a key such as an SSH public key.
5. Searchable by terms, name or content if the type is appropriate.
6. Pass in the URL for an object and have the server download it.
7. Stores files in native format so if the app breaks I can just get the files.

General :: Open Office Defaults ?

Jan 30, 2010

I want to change some of the defaults in Open Office but it seems like it's trickier than it should be. An example of what I would like to change is the default outline format, I prefer the 1st option in the 2nd row (when going to format --> bullets and numbering), but I have to select it every damn time I have to do bullets, which is pretty much 50 times a day). I also HATE tab stop for bullets, I think they are horrible for placement and I prefer a space over a tab stop (I don't get how anyone can functionally use tab stop in outlines, once you hit III. it does a FULL TAB and throws off the alignment completely). I've complained about this to the developers and....they have bigger priorities.

General :: Install Open Office 3.3.0 - Or Any Other Version?

Jun 9, 2011

I can't even begin to explain what i've been through trying to do this. I've been trying for a week now..not just a few minutes a day..

I've managed to destroy the Synaptic Program Manager. Nothing at all comes up.

I've been through several tutorials...I've become the master at "command not found" even when I copy it and paste it to the terminal.

I've been working daily on Ubuntu for about a month, but and I've regressed instead of progressed.

I've installed software which I can't find. It's been one failure after another. I live in a small town where NOBODY knows how to use Ubuntu..

General :: Running Open Office Developer Version

Feb 3, 2011

What's the actual command I run to run OOo developer version download: Developer Builds and Release Candidates the last entry, "Snapshot...". I'm curious to see if some of the bugs they are saying are fixed are fixed in that version. I have it installed, and I know they do not have "desktop-integration" for a reason, but they don't actually tell you what the physical terminal command to run it is.

General :: Future Of Open Office - Latest Version

Oct 23, 2010

Since open office is now bought by oracle I am confused about the state of the latest version of OO version 3.2 I think. Would it be legal to install that version on a computer. Oracle perhaps made a bummer with this. The real dev community is thrown out and we are again looking at corporate greed taking precedence for their own profit rather than development of technology. I have high hopes from libre office but then one more open source product (it was not sun's to begin with remember) being swallowed by a corporate.

General :: Open Office Install - Dependency Errors

Apr 13, 2011

I'm having problems installing things like "Teamspeak" and Netsupport on my 64 bit fedora 14. Now netsupport will run in the terminal window, but won't install.

However the thing that hurts the worst right now, is "Open Office" I open a terminal window, type "su" put in the password and run the installer from a prompt cd'd to the setup file. I get back dependency errors that I don't understand. So I ran the updates and tried again. No luck. I have screenshots of the error messages in case someone could help me decode, they download to full size if they aren't read-able enough.

General :: Could Open Office Clashing Totally Obliterate System?

I have an acer aspire one with Linpus Lite. Copied a document into OO yesterday and got a message OO had crashed. OO window wouldn't close etc. Emails and internet still worked ok. When closing down, emails & internet closed ok. Tried Ctrl, Alt Del to close the crashed OO file - didn't work. Eventually turned machine off at main switch. Today when turning machine on, goes past the screen advertising Acer Aspire one, but then nothing else happens, no icons. Black screen with a cross as a cursor. Cross is a diagonal cross, thicker than an ordinary x. Nothing like I have ever seen before.
