I'm trying to use Open Office presentation, and it makes me angry and a little disappointed because it feels like it is everything else than user friendly...Like 50% of all the options are grayed out and it is really irritating!It started when i tried to view the presentation, and advance to the next image by pressing the mouse button like in power point, and it is so bad layout i don't understand how, and it makes it even worse when i can't click 50% of eventual solutions.
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 don't know if I'm doing something wrong but I've been running Ubuntu or a variant for about a year now and suddenly every now and then one or two of my documents (open office or pdfs) have no information and they won't open.
I'm having sporadic issues with the openoffice.org program. Sometimes, power point presentations will crash the program and then I can't open any open office programs without rebooting the computer. The problem seems to be just with powerpoint files and I'm not sure what the issue could be.
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 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.
I cant open xls files in a shared folder using open office 3.1. Its all started when i install a new open office version. when im using open office 3.0.8 i can open all the files but now i cant even open it. Its always display untitled documents.
I have been on the open office site, and tried several different downloads for Open Office 3.2. However, once I unpack the gzipped file, I get several deb packages from within the archive. Could someone kindly point me to a link where I can d/l a single deb package so I may easily install / (upgrade to)version 3.2? FWIW, I am using Karmic with the latest updates and OO ver. 3.1.1 on my netbook.
I installed open office 3.2, but when I start it get this error Quote: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/libuno_sal.so.3: version `UDK_3.10' not found (required by /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/libsfxlx.so) /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/../basis-link/program/../ure-link/lib/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by /opt/openoffice.org3/program/libjvmfwk.so.3)
If Open Office had any problems saving in different file formats than the open format (which I know it doesn't have problems with) and rtf (which I know it does). I have to use it for school and I do not want to lose things like bullets, numbering and especially not information when saving in Microsoft Word formats.
how can I remove Open Office 3.2? I can't find it in the Software Center or anything, and I don't want to accidentally do something wrong. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 and I have AbiWord installed, and to be truthful that's all I really need.
Have installed msttcorefonts but they're not showing up in Open Office 3.2. I've tried restarting the machine and even a fresh install of Open Office to no avail. Can't recall doing anything special to make them available in Open Office in past; has something changed or am I missing something obvious?
OK, solved it; for anyone else having trouble, I completely removed ttf-mscorefonts-installer package then reinstalled it; upon reinstallation I got a EULA to accept and everything went as expected.
What are my options for viewing power point presentations? a few searches in synaptic yielded nothing useful (other than the kde version). I'm looking for something as lightweight as possible. Don't need editing capabilities at the moment. Also I'd rather not wine.
The open Office installation on Netbook Remix is too much for an Eeepc 701 (4gb), so, as you do, I uninstalled it and replaced it with Abiword/Gnumeric, but I keep receiving large-sized updates for Open Office! I don't need them (or in fact the CUPS updates either), but I don't know how to stop them from being rather forcefully offered each day.
I want to know how to access the clipboard in Open Office. I want to get to the things that I have put there by cutting or copying them so that I can re-paste. how to cut and paste one item at a time (and doesn't even mention copying!)
Can't use Excel files with Open Office. When trying to edit and fill out a RMA form using Excel file I keep getting a message saying: 'Protected cells can not be modified'.
Here's a screenshot. What do you have to do to get it to work with Ubuntu? Excel works fine with Windows but I can't use Excel on Ubuntu with Open Office. This is the first time ever using Excel with Ubuntu and Open Office.
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.
