Software :: Double Clicking On Open Office Files Leads To Very Slow Opening?

May 15, 2010

I upgraded from Kubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. It was a fresh install of kubuntu, although I did leave a windows partition on there elsewhere. Grub messed up but I fixed that with a small text edit. Anyway, when I click on a file, i.e. Open Office writer or Calc, the computer thinks about it for like 60 seconds and then finally Open Office (version 3.2.0)finishes opening the file. It also does this while saving some files. It did not do this this version 9.10 which really amazes me. I have deleted OOo and reinstalled it several times and nothing helps. All other file handling seems normal, and it is a fast newer computer with a lot of memory.

General :: Launch A Terminal By Clicking On The Terminal Icon At The Top Of The Screen

Apr 22, 2010

I have a favorite REXX program called fv2. When I was a Windows user I had an icon for fv2 on the Quick Launch bar. Click that icon, and the program ran. Now, as a Linux (Ubuntu) user it is necessary to go through several steps to run fv2.

1) Launch a terminal by clicking on the terminal icon at the top of the screen. What's that area called? The GNOME panel?
2) Enter: ~/Desktop/RexxScripts
3) Enter: regina fv2

I run fv2 several times per day and would really like to have the convenience of a clickable icon.

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 :: Change Default Save To Destination In Open Office Writer 3.2?

May 23, 2010

In Open Office Writer 3.2, is there any way that I can change the default "save as" "to" location from Documents folder to some other location (e.g., Desktop) in Lucid? I have looked thru everything I can find under tools>options, but I don't see anything that appears relevant.

Any command line deal I could do from terminal that might accomplish this?

This question is in connection with this thread: [URL]

Ubuntu :: How To Change Terminal App For Nautilus-open-terminal

Dec 1, 2010

I've fallen in love with Terminator as a replacement for the standard gnome-terminal app.

However, I'm also very much in the habit of using the nautilus-open-terminal extension for launching new terminal sessions.

I'd like nautilus-open-terminal to launch Terminator rather than gnome-terminal.

A quick search of my system and the web didn't reveal anything. i didn't find a gconf setting to control this. A quick look at the source code didn't help much either.

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.

OpenSUSE :: When Open Dolphin In Superuser Mode And Change The Permissions To Make Myself The Owner Of Those Folders?

Jul 24, 2011

On my dual-boot system, 11.4 and win7, Iped out the Doc and DL folders in my home directory and replaced 'em with links to the ones on the windows side. It works great except for one thing: When I open Dolphin in superuser mode and change the permissions to make myself the owner of those folders, the change doesn't take. Is there a special trick to it?GEFPS: I plan to use openSUSE as my main OS, but it's easier to keep my data on the NTFS partition, because Linux speaksindows better than than Windows speaks Linux. Besides, that's where my data already lives

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 :: 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?

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..

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.
