Help! I want to switch my office from LO 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 because the reports, macros and SQL work better in the newer version but when I tried to open files over the network they show the LO splash screen then nothing - I can get nothing to open over the network, which sadly is a deal breaker for this office. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?
FYI: just a few more details: Okular opens PDF’s just fine, and will even open the .odt writer files, but Writer will not open .odt files. Gedit will also open text files so the network itself does work, LO just won’t open anything over it… I have tested from the Ubuntu 13.4 desktop as well as my laptop running Ubuntu 13.10
The workaround works, the trick was opening the desktop file - open the applications folder in the terminal and use
gksu gedit libreoffice4.1-base.desktop and that is how you can edit the desktop file to
comment out the line X-GIO-NoFuse=true
Repeat this process for writer, calc, draw, empress & math and then all your LO files will open just fine over the network.
Note this is the Nautilus fix.
More follow up - I found this work around online but when I try to open the .desktop file it tells me it is not a trusted source and will not open it - any suggestions please?
For Nautilus users:
Open the .desktop file (such as /usr/share/applications/libreoffice4.1-writer.desktop for LO Writer) and comment the following line:
