When open network files, those are always read only :-(

asked 2020-02-13 16:20:28 +0100


Somebody please help me.

With last version Libreoffice over Linux Ubuntu 18.04, every try to open a network shared file (Samba protocol) is opened in a read only mode. If I copy the file form the Windows shared folder to local machine, it's opened RW.

Before (yesterday), with Libreoffice 6.0.3 it didn't happened.

I check folder and files permissions and they are Full Read&Write.

Did you test whether the issue is related to file locking? To test - temporarily disable file locking though: org.openoffice.Office.Common\Misc\UseLocking to false using Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Advanced -> Button: Open Expert Configuration -> Search: UseLocking.

I've tested on my Linux system (openSUSE Linux 15.1 and LibreOffice and I got no problem, (with UseLocking set to true) to open a file shared from my Windows 10 box. Do you explicitly force vers=3.0 (CIFS protocol version) when sharing the folder from the Windows system?

Please do not use Add Answer but edit your original question to enhance the details of your question. Thanks in advance …
