icontasks and libreoffice

Tue Nov 06, 2012 3:24 pm
Hello,

I have a launcher for the libreoffice writer in my icontasks plasmoid. When I click on the launcher a new empty odt doc appears and an active task indicator is placed over the launcher. This is all good. Screen: http://imgur.com/VVZSs (the writer launcher is the one with the typewriter icon)

Anyway, if I open an odt doc from, say, dolphin, a new task is created. Screen: http://i.imgur.com/7fi7f.jpg

If I right-click on the new task and select "show a launcher when not running", a new launcher is created called "soffice.bin" who doesn't even launch anything.

Any idea what's wrong?

Edit: nevermind, solved it after reading this: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=306607. Not sure exactly what the problem was.

fyi - this is not an icontasks plasmoid issue, the std task manager exhibits the same behavior

the file is executable when called with the full path name and it opens the LibreOffice new document screen where you select what kind of document you wish to create. when called with just the file name, soffice.bin, Linux doesn't know where the file is because it's folder is not in $PATH nor is there a link to it in /usr/bin

the quickest fix would be to create a symbolic link to in in /usr/bin - probably to the soffice, not soffice.bin file though I don't know the difference as they both seem to function the same (but have diff sizes)

the bug is probably that the file called should be soffice, not soffice.bin but either opens the create new document screen which may not be what you want, you might want the specific write, calc whatever LibreOffice module

note: I found no bug reported when searching on bugs.kde.org


OpenSuse 13.1 x64, KDE 4.12.x

thanks for your reply, I had already edited the original message before seeing it.
You didn't find the bug because its marked as solved. I linked it in the first post, its not the same exact behaviour but it should be related since the slution is the same.
