  • I have an ods file with links to all my epubs
  • The links open (ctrl click) in Okular
  • But I prefer Calbre ebook reader
  • So how to tell LibreOffice to open each link not with Okular but with Calibre ??

It is not a LibreOffice function; rather, it's a function of your operating system. When LibreOffice gets a command to open an URL, it doesn't do it itself, rather it asks OS to do that using an application registered to handle that kind of resource. So - you need to make sure that your preferred application is registered in your OS as default application for that filetype.

Thank you for quick reply

In fact my OS is Ubuntu, and the help ubuntu advice «Select the application you want and click Set as default is not working

(I never get the Set as default option)

So this is a q. for Ubuntu

Sorry to have troubled you
