Slackware :: Openoffice Will Not Save To Nfs Share - Openoffice 3.2.0

Jun 5, 2010

I have an nfs share that mounts automatically when kde starts.


wendy@DellNB:~$ cat .kde/Autostart/mountNAS.sh
mount ~/TestShare
#echo "NAS Mounted"


Gimp works fine editing and saving photos from/to the nfs share. kWrite can do its thing and read/create files on the NAS. Files I create with vim are visible and editable under windows. OpenOffice however, when I try an open a file I get "file is locked by unknown user." I open as copy and try saving to the share with a different name... No Dice, error saving to share the file is created on the share but it is empty. I did some reading and found a post that said to comment a line from a file called soffice, which I cannot find.

Ubuntu :: Various OpenOffice Types In The Same Document?

May 24, 2010

Im currently using OpenOffice.org Writer to write a hand in document for my course. I've come to the point where I want to create a graphical tree in Draw to present an idea and then add this document into writer. I've tried to use Insert -> Object -> OLE Object, and add the document as an inline frame. This looked pretty ugly though, either it's too small or there seems to be no way to just resize the frame without stretching the whole document into unreadability.

Ubuntu :: Openoffice.org Document Vanished?

May 13, 2011

My father saved a document in openoffice.org on our Ubuntu computer, but it seems to have vanished. There is no icon in Documents (where he said he saved it) other than a zip file which doesn't have it in it. The only place I can seem to try to open it from is in OpenOffice itself under "Recent Documents", but when i click on it, it says "filename.odt does not exist", and i cannot right-click to open it with another word processor. I don't have backups enabled I noticed in OpenOffice's settings, but surely the document is somewhere! I checked in the trash but it's not in there. It's very important and he spent hours and hours on it, it would be terrible to try to write it again. I am very unfamiliar with the Ubuntu operating system as I myself have Windows 7,

Software :: OpenOffice Document On EeePC?

Jan 26, 2010

I have an EeePC 701SD running Linux that I use for Uni assignments mostly. Recently, there were some issues with it so under advisement I reset the EeePC to its factory settings and reinstalled everything. Since then, I have been having problems with my documents through openoffice and was wondering if this was an openoffice problem or something else entirely.

If I save documents, I cannot open them again. I get a little pop up box if I open openoffice and go file/open that asks me to put it in Unicode. If I choose the file from my documents, it opens in texteditor, telling me it is a binary file and to save it will corrupt it. Neither option actually gets me my file; openoffice gives me lovely little squares, and texteditor gives me the # symbol.I cannot open the documents on Windows either.

a) what is going on,
b) how I can resolve it, and
c) how I can fix my documents (important, uni documents!!)

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - OpenOffice Slow On Opening / Saving Document

Ubuntu :: OpenOffice: Temporary Hang On Opening Document?

Feb 14, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit with all the current updates. It was a clean install, but I did import my previous home folder. The only things I can think of that depart from a standard installation are that I'm running an encrypted drive with LVM and I've installed some extra fonts.Whenever I open an OpenOffice document (write or calc) for the first time in a session, I get a 5-7 second hang that locks up only OpenOffice. It can be an existing document or a fresh document. The hang doesn't occur until I can actually see the document. In Write, I can actually type the first few letters of a sentence before the program hangs. Once the 5-7 seconds elapses, everything in OpenOffice seems to work just fine, and the remainder of the sentence I typed appears.

This happens whether I start OpenOffice from the command line, by double-clicking a file, or from a launcher. There are no error messages in Terminal. Once OpenOffice has been opened in a given session, even if I close it, any documents subsequently opened open fine without the hangAccording to this thread, the problem seems to have existed in Lucid, too, though I don't recall experiencing it then. I tried adding the recommended line to my /etc/hosts file as described here, but it didn't help. One of the posters filed an issue with OpenOffice.org that includes some technical explanation for the issue that's way over my head.The other solution offered in the above thread, using OpenOffice open/save menus, doesn't seem to apply in my situation, but I tried it anyway and it made no difference.

It looks like the issue isn't limited to Ubuntu, as I found this post on the openSuse forums that describes the same problem I'm having. Unfortunately, no solution for me there, either.I have tried renaming the .openoffice.org and .openoffice.org2 folders, rebooting, and retesting, but that didn't work.As annoying as it is, I could easily live with it since once I've opened OpenOffice it's not a problem, except for one thing: I'm running a bash script using unoconv to automate processing some documents, and it will fail due to the hang if I don't open OpenOffice first, even though the script itself opens a headless session of OpenOffice. It seems like the 5-7 second lag trips it up. I guess I could come up with a workaround in the script, but I'd like to try to fix OpenOffice, first

Fedora :: Recovering An OpenOffice.org Document After Corruption?

Aug 21, 2010

Last night I was working on a document on my brothers Laptop computer. While working on it however, the computer locked up hard and I had to press the power button. When I booted back up I loaded up OpenOffice.org and it offered to recover my progress as normal, so I gave it the go ahead but it gave me a blank page. No big deal, I thought, and went to load up the original document. That is when the *beep* hit the fan. The original document was corrupted. My theory was that it was saving at the time of the crash. A 50 KB document now reads as only 4 KB. I did have a backup of the document from about a month ago, but that is ten pages shorter than the document that I lost.

Is there anyway I can recover my progress on the document? The computer is my brothers Dell Latitude D600 running Fedora 12 and he is using OpenOffice.org 3. I checked the "~/.openoffice.org/3/user/backup" directory and found two documents, but those are just useless files from when we were doing Grade 10 Social Studies. I doubt the remains of the file are much use, as it has shrunk in size dramatically. So it seems I may be up a certain creek, but I thought I would ask a few of the guru's here for some advice.

I did learn how to make it automatically backup files in OpenOffice.org through. Hopefully that will help prevent these kinds of situations from occurring again.

OpenSUSE :: OpenOffice 3.2.1 - Hangs Opening Document

Sep 10, 2010

Running openSuse 11.3 32 bit clean default KDE install.

When opening documents(Write, Calc, Impress?) in OpenOffice 3.2.1 there is a 7 to 10 second pause between when the document is displayed on screen and when any mouse action takes effect. This is not a document size issue, these are small documents with minimal formatting; one or two pages. Also, the system has ample horsepower and is not resource constrained.

Clicking on a writer.odt file, from within Dolphin, results in the following events: Open Office.Org(ooo) splash screen displays with progress bar zipping across for a couple of seconds. The document appears on screen. For the next 7 - 10 seconds, clicking in the document or clicking ooo menu items or anything else results in nothing happening. Actions outside of ooo work fine. ooo simply freezes for the 7 or so seconds and then everything returns to normal operation.

As a test I tried opening Writer with the default blank document. I started typing immediately after the blank document was displayed. I typed Te and then it froze for several seconds before displaying the final two characters st As before, once past this first few seconds, everything is fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 - Turned The Laptop Off Without Saving A Document In Openoffice 3.2

Jul 9, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 10.4 at my laptop (lenovo G530) which includes OpenOffice 3.2 (Oracle). The problem is that I turned the laptop off without saving a document in Openoffice.Now every time I open OpenOffice it comes the OpenOffice Document Recovery and asks me to Press "Start Recovery". The dialog window is too large and I can't move it beyond the top of the screen to find the "Start Recovery" button. It goes until the top of the screen and that 's it!Also I can't resize it to a small one.I have tried to "move" it but it doesn't work.I have autohidden the upper and down bars but nothing!The window is too big to find the "Press button".
How can i make the window going upper the screen?

Ubuntu :: LibreOffice Cannot Save Existing Document To Windows Server

Jun 10, 2011

I am having a problem with a LibreOffice when saving or saving as to a Windows Share.



Small office server running Windows. Mounted using the Gigolo manager (used without issue in version 10.10).

All of our contracts and proposals are on the server. I can open a contract in LibreOffice from the server.

(All documents I am working with are native openoffice formats, these were not MS file conversions.)

I open a document titled A_Libreoffice_test.odt from the contracts directory on the windows server. No problems. I save as A_Libreoffice_test_2.odt to the contracts directory on the Windows server and get this error box:

If I select all contents within my document and paste it into a new LibreOffice Writer file then save the new file to the contracts directory on my Windows server, it saves without any problems. However, should I open that very same file that I just created and try to save it after a change or save as without any change, I will receive the error again.

Of course copy and pasting textual contracts is one thing but we also do all of our proposals in OpenOffice Draw (LibreOffice Draw) which behaves the same way. The select all, copy/paste into a new document workaround is less attractive in Draw.

We have 5 Ubuntu machines in our office working with files on this server. For now, employees and I are having to save our documents and transfer them to the server nightly.

I did a test by booting into the MacOS where I am also running LibreOffice and did not experience the same problem.

Here is what I have tried so far:

1) Removing all libreoffice applications and files then reinstalling but that also did not solve the problem.

2) Disabling the firewall on our Windows server temporarily to test the save as function (no change).

3) Remove libreoffice and try to install OpenOffice (not successful).

4) Poured some scotch and posted this question here on the Ubuntu forum... hopefully this works

Ubuntu :: Figures - When Save Document And Open It Up Again The Plots Are Gone - Unable To Read

Mar 25, 2010

I have made some plots in gnuplot that I wanted to include in a document. I have tried both OpenOffice and Kile.

In openoffice the plots are shown when they are imported, but when I save the document and open it up again the plots are gone (unable to read).

In Kile I can't even import them, It cant find the file in the folder. I tried changing the formats from jpg to png - didn't work. Tried just taking a snapshot of the original plot and saving it, didn't work either (but have used the same method earlier today without problems for a different image).

When i move the cursor across the file, it fades away as if it's not registered correctly. Does anybody have a solution for this?

Software :: Document Format Compatibility W/ Ereader

Jan 7, 2010

I picked up a Barnes and Nobles nook (ereader) for my fianc'e and have some ebooks in multiple formats HTML, RTF, PDF, TXT, DOCX, DOC and a couple random other formats. But the problem here is that it only reads PDF files. I need a way to convert these files to PDF but also to edit the PDF text. For instance there are a couple of LIT files I converted to PDF in Windows that have a header and footer that I cant seem to find out how to remove.

Ubuntu :: Document Viewer Doesn't Save Information To Fillable Pdf Properly / Solve This?

Dec 20, 2010

I am trying to fill out this PDF form:


In Document Viewer, I can click on the fields and type in them, but after spending about 2 hours writing descriptions of courses, I saved it and... it closed the document I was working on, and loading the document I saved resulted in empty fields that could no longer be edited at all - clicking on them did nothing - it looked like a blank form, except it was also broken.

Is there any way I can actually fill in this form...

General :: Ubuntu To Windows Openoffice Save

Feb 11, 2011

I just finished working on my teacher's paper, which is due to her an hour ago... For 2 hours I've been trying to find my paper anywhere on ubuntu, or my windows installation. It is nowhere, anymore. The paper took me 4 hours to type up, and I JUST saved it onto my windows installation. The desktop of my user profile, to be exact. I restarted to windows to print it off, but it wasn't on my desktop. First reaction: FFUUU, wait backup. SO I went to my backup directory of linux. Guess what: Nothing there.... Any way of gettin my work back without retyping all 8 pages?

Ubuntu :: Get Open And Save Menus In Openoffice.org 3.3?

Feb 10, 2011

I installed the latest Openoffice.org from Openoffice website on an old 8.04 install. I downloaded the 64 bit .deb version for Ubuntu. All went well. OO3.3 runs well. My question is can you use the Ubuntu Open and Save dialogs? The one where you have drives on the left side. All that comes up with this version is a basic Open or Save dialog. The OO that comes with Ubuntu has these menus. Is there anyway to get these with Openoffice downloaded from the OO website?

Ubuntu :: Kate Crashed On File Save / All Files Created During Session Lost

Jan 24, 2010

I'm running Karmic 64-bit and Kate 3.3.90.I have been splitting up a very large (16,000 lines) text file by copy/pasting bits of it into smaller files. I had about 40 of these smaller files loaded into a session along with the large file. About 20 were from a previous day of editing and about 20 had been added (and saved) today.

I tried to save the file I currently had open and Kate crashed. I didn't think it was that big a deal until I reopened Kate and all of the files I had added today were gone!!I've looked in the folder and even the backup files that should have been there for files I'd saved more than once are not there.

Fedora Hardware :: Print - Client-error-document-format-not-supported ?

I have just installed a Canon Pixma iP2200 on Fedora 14. The installation 'seemed' to go OK but whenever I try to print anything I get the following error:

"There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'."

I have done a bit of searching and the only advice i could find is to uncomment some lines in /etc/cups/mime.convs and /etc/cups/mime.types but I don't have either of those files!

Fedora Hardware :: Canon Pixma MP450 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'

Mar 1, 2011

A neighbor of mine just got a Canon Pixma MP450 printer, to replace an old HP printer, and I am trying to get it to work with Fedora 11 installation from a machine they have borrowed from me. The printer gets recognized upon plugging it in but when I try to print a test page from the printer properties I receive the following error:'client-error-document-format-not-supported'

The driver that is selected for the printer is "Generic Driver" I have tried to select a driver but have not found any Canon drivers from the selection dialog box. After searching the web I see mention of a Canon MP150 driver working for the MP450 but I have not found this driver. Is there a driver I have to install from YUM or download from Canon? Are there others successfully using this printer and if so what have they done to get it to work?

Ubuntu :: Opening MS Word Docs In OpenOffice - Changing Format

Feb 18, 2011

I noticed that files that were written in MS Word 2003 change when opened in Open Office 3.2.1 This usually involves tables, lists, and image placement, as well as page margins and boundaries. It sometimes makes it annoying when reading files saved in MS Word .doc format that other people send me. Does anyone know if there is an extension to fix this? Or settings that can be changed? Also, was this addressed in version 3.3.0 of OpenOffice? Has anyone tried it on LibreOffice? I don't want to install VirtualBox, Windows, and Office to read Word files properly. I dislike MS.

Ubuntu :: LibreOffice Track Changes And Save As .doc Format

May 30, 2011

I'm using LibreOffice 3.3.2 to open a document I received through work. The document is from MS Word in .doc format and has some track changes. I started using Libre Office to track my changes to the document but the only format I can save it in and retain my changes is .odt which is fine for me. However I would like to return this in .doc format.

It seems odd that LibreOffice happily opens a document with track changes but cannot save them back in that format.

Am I doing something wrong? I am using Edit>Changes>Record and then File>Save As.
