Software :: Make Open Office Writer Default When Click On A Document?
Apr 17, 2010
am using slackware 13 and want to make Open Officeriter default when I click on a document. Currently when I click on doc it opens kwrite. Similarly when I click on an audio file it opens Gxine. I prefer MPlayer.
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?

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?
I was working on a text file in open office writer last night, and this morning i tried to open it and a little thing popped up saying "ASCII Filter Options," prompting me for which character set, language and default fonts I wanted to use. (only after it asked if i wanted to recover the document, which i just did since it was asking me...) Now the document, which was very important, is a scrambled bunch of random characters! I cannot find the correct character set. Why is it prompting me for which character encoding I am using in the first place?
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)?
I am using OO 3.1 on Karmic 9.10. When working with Open Office Writer and either graphics or charts, a couple of things happen. First of all, the page position moves around. For example, if I click on a graphic I have inserted or on a chart, the page on my screen may shift up or down by a half inch or so. If I click back out in a text area, the page moves back to where it was. This is very annoying. Has anyone else had a problem like this? I have tried turning off compiz completely but it doesn't fix it
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.
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?
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
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.
my open office is experiancing some problems. 1.) sometimes when I go to edit a document it freezes for up five minutes before allowing me to continue. 2.) it isn't allowing me to save any new documents or overwrite existing ones. 3.) it's taking an EXTREMELY lone time to load current documents up to an hour or sometimes not at all.
I have installed LibreOffice (x86) on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, and it's working great!
I'm just curious if anyone knows a quick way to make LibreOffice the default for all of the appropriate files (doc, odt, xls, ods, etc.)
I searched around in the the LibreOffice>Tools>Options, but I haven't found anything yet. I'm aware that I could right click on a ods file and use the "Open With Other Application" to set a default for that one filetype, but I figured that there's probably a way to completely switch all office file types to Libreoffice.
I am a complete newcomer to Ubuntu (or Linux in general for that matter) although I have many years' experience of Windows. It seems to me that the Base application of the open office suite of programs has not been installed by default. Why is this? And how do I install it in Ubuntu 9.1?
Last time I tried bringing one of my essays to school that I wrote on my ubuntu word processor (open office) microsoft word could not read the file. How would I be able to go about making my document that I wrote on open office readable on microsoft word when I bring it to school or upload it on my schools website.
Okay so I have a file that I always save and close properly and get in my Ubuntu One folder for backup that will not open. Its called "Income.ods" and is quite important and I cannot seem to recover it. When I double click it, it shows the Libre Office Calc splash screen shows up then goes away and the nothing, no error messages, no nothing. I tried to open it on my Windows Vista machine and it said it was corrupted and could not open in Office Word. I tried a few recovery tools but to no avail.
so in Windows I remember I could add to the registry under the * folder in classes_root under Shell, I could add any command I wanted. That way no matter what file I right clicked on I could have EDIT or OPEN with that file.
Is there a way to add this to the gnome right click menu? A default always there for all filetypes? I have UltraEdit Linux installed and want to have the same functionality I had when I used to use windows.
I have noticed that when I create a table in openoffice writer and I create a formula in a cell in order to add all the numbers in a column (ex. <A>+<B>+...) they work fine but then when I save and quit the document and open it up again the formulas dont work anymore and I have to retype them. how can I prevent this from happening?
I've ran into something rather odd. I've installed wine and Office 2007. If I am to open a office 2003 (doc) or office 2007 (docx) file, it will open wine and office 2007 to edit the file. This is the desired behaviour. If I am to open an office 2003 (doc) file in firefox, openoffice will be opened. If I am to do the same with an office 2007 (docx) file, wine and office 2007 will open.where to start to get wine/office 2007 to open files from firefox?
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.
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.
i cannot seem to find a proper way to make Java my default application to open .jar files. I just made a new Debian 8.3 install on my laptop HP Pavilion G6 and the default application for opening .jar files is the Archive Manager. But when i go to "Open with.." section on right-clicking the .jar file, i get no JRE or JDK option to choose. I just installed the openjdk 7. I can manually run them from the bash, but it would be much more convenient if i just double-clicked it. Here is what i get when i run several commands in the bash :
1) which java ->Code: Select all /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin/java 2) java -version -> Code: Select alljava version "1.7.0_95" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (7u95-2.6.4-1~deb8u1) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode) 3) echo $PATH: Code: Select all/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-amd64/bin: /usr/local/ sbin:/usr/local/bin:/ usr/ sbin:/usr/bin:/ sbin:/bin 4) javac -version : Code: Select alljavac 1.7.0_95
Is there a way to make ncftp hold the connection open longer than the default? a ping every 10 sec or something? I feel like after I push a change up to the server before I can verify everything is working as expected and get back into ncftp the connection is closed by the remote host.
