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


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?
