When I try to start any Libre office app from a terminal (because the panel will not start them at all) I get this (attached) I open System Monitor and check processes and according to that Libre Office is not running. Can anyone explain what Unity is doing? and how to fix it.
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.
just downloaded meerkat wich comes with Libre Office. I tried to download the help file from Inkscape and that works fine. But when I tried to print it out, only text appears on the paper together with the frames for the pictures. What am i doing wrong or is it a bug.? Never had troubles with Open Office.
As in title, I'm using Libre Office on my OpenSuse 11.4 and there is no 'Record' option under macro. I have search the net and some suggest this solution - to check box 'Enable experimental features' in Options. I did that but still no Record Macro at all.
I create a file in Libre/Open Office. Put PNG graphic file into it. Save file as .doc (not .odt).Close it and re-open.As a result, I see placeholder for my PNG image and only small thumbnail in the corner.Tried to find solution in Google and did not find anything.Did anybody experience same problem?How can I get my PNG images to show correctly in LO/OOo?
I've been dealing with "blurred" menus on my openoffice and I'm not quite sure how to approach it. I've done some google searching but perhaps I'm using the wrong terms because nothing helpful is coming up.
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.
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.
At the end of installing crossover pro 9.1, I was provided the following message:
Code: cxmenu:error: unable to parse '/etc/xdg/menus/unity-place-applications.menu': Invalid string in comment field [Ln: 157, Col: 8] I opened unity-place-applications.menu and looked at that line. Starting with line 155: Code: <!-- System Tools-->
I'm guessing that the comment lines that start with just "--" are generating the error. Does anyone know what the section is and what it should look like for the crossover menu items, such as installing windows software?
I got the following task from my boss. I have to find out if there is some alternative tool for create reports from Squid except SARG. Now, we use SARG, but my boss told to me, that the main problem of SARG is, that SARG generate huge amount files, which cause problems during migration our servers. He told to me the following condition for change of current tool (SARG):
* standard package of Debian * generate less amount of files, optimal is to save reports to the database
So I would like to ask you if you know about some tool (I can not find some by google)... and the best would be if you told to me some practical experiences.
I am getting seriously tired of running MS Office in a virtual machine. It's been about 18 months since I tried running in on Wine, so I just checked out WineHQ and CodeWeavers and apparently usability hasn't improved at all.
I keep trying to use OpenOffice but whenever I open PowerPoint presentations they are always kind of messed up. This week, somebody sent me an MS Word file for printing labels for a mail merge and the label template file opened up blank. Anybody else have any brilliant work arounds or am I still stuck with my MS Office VirtualBox!! It's really hard to believe that its 2011 and Linux is still missing a world-class Office Suite...
I need to know if I can easily transfer powerpoint files from an old microsoft computer to my now linux computer and run them w/o difficulty in OpenOffice Presentation I looked on google but couldn't find a definite answer. The same question for all my microsoft office files and converting and running them in my linux OpenOffice programs.
Yesterday I installed OpenOffice on my Linux server. But when I go to run it through the command line, it says command cannot be found. I've also tried other things like OOWriter, etc. Has anyone had this problem? Installation process went like below: root@aserver [OOO330_m20_native_packed-1_en-US.9567/RPMS]#
rpm -i *.rpm package openoffice.org-ure-1.7.0-9567.i586 is already installed package ooobasis3.3-core01-3.3.0-9567.i586 is already installed package ooobasis3.3-en-US-3.3.0-9567.i586 is already installed package ooobasis3.3-core02-3.3.0-9567.i586 is already installed
What's the actual command I run to run OOo developer version download: OpenOffice.org 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.
Unity is not running when i log in, instead i am presented with the same 10.10 desktop: Applications, places, and system. I upgraded from the CD, because my internet connection is slow and it would take forever with the update manager. If it is important, i used the new upgrade option on the CD. my hardware is as follows:
pentium 4 cpu 3 GHZ nvidia geforce 4 mx 4000 2 GB of ram
htop is my preferred system monitor, but I have a problem with it in Unity: When I open htop from the Applications lens there's no entry in the launcher added for it. This means I can't add it permanently to the launcher. It may have to do with it being a terminal based program, but I was wondering if there is a way to get it permanently added to the launcher?
I've just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my netbook. Having had a bit of a play with Unity I found it not to my taste, so I've switched to "Ubuntu Classic" - Gnome without Unity - on the login screen. For a while now I've organised my work using the Workspace Switcher Gnome applet. I use five workspaces, each named to identify the type of stuff that goes on in it.
11.04 comes with Workspace Switcher version 2.32.1 - right clicking it and clicking on Preferences gives a stripped down preferences dialogue, no longer including fields allowing the user to define workspace names. Ubuntu 10.04, for example, uses Workspace Switcher 2.30.2 which did allow for workspace names to be defined via the Workspace Switcher Preferences dialogue. I'd really like to be able to define workspace names and have them show in the Workspace Switcher in the panel.
I can't hide the launcher in unity 3D. In 2D, it works fine, hides when i open a program, looks normal, everything. In 3D, it stays on top of whatever program I'm running. What I've tried Reinstalled unity 2D. (apt-get remove, apt-get install) For whatever reason, when I log into 3D without 2D installed, it looks like gnome, but the screen is garbled, the images disappear, menus come up as plain black squares, i literally can't even open a program. Once I install unity 2D, 3D works fine, but I can't hide the launcher. Messed around with CCSM. I tried each option under hide launcher in unity plugin (never, autohide, dodge windows, dodge active windows). None of them change anything. Updated everything through update manager (last night actually). Both 2D & 3D look and work fine, no lag or sluggish behavior. All of the effects look normal. I just can't get rid of the big launcher covering up everything I do! I've just been using 2D, although I would like to use 3D.
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?
