I have a very simple macro running on Windows the code is the following

Sub open_FILE
     dim sCMD as String
     dim argument as string
     sCMD = "v:/tmp"
    'this shows the directry tmp in explorer windows
    oShell = createUnoService("")
End Sub

I want to execute this macro on Linux (mint) The macro is executed step wise and no error occurs but nothing is done I have modified my macro in order to execute a command

     sCMD = "gedit /home/mint/x.txt"

(this command is OK from the command line) but this is not executed Macro are authorized in both systems but when I open LO in win, it asks for macros, not in linux is that a clue? Can you help Thanks

Your code worked when I put the text path in the augument:

sub open_file
dim sCMD as string
dim argument as string
end sub

But even simpler

sub open_file2
shell("gedit /home/bill/words.txt",1)
end sub
