Fwd: Restrict file dialog view to specific folders

folders

Sorry for the very delayed response on this note.  Was going back and
cleaning out my email.

I work on a system where the regular user does not have ready access to the
underlying filesystem.  Essentially they are using the system in kiosk
mode.  We want the user to only have the ability to open files from their
home folder, but no where else for security reasons.  We don't want them to
be able to browse around to other folders outside their home folder.  We
tried resolving the issue using SELinux but it's not a complete solution,
because if we make SELinux too restrictive then LibreOffice breaks.  This
is probably related to lack of expertise in writing SELinux policy.  At any
rate, we thought finding a way to restrict LibreOffice to only have the
ability to view their home folder would be a more expedient solution.  This
would probably involve making code changes, but we haven't delved into that
because we don't want to have to maintain those changes for future updates
to LibreOffice.  Thanks for your help,

-Will Crisp

Emailing documents...

Using LO v4.2.6.3 on LinuxMint v17 Qiana MATE.

I have two email clients on the computer.  Thunderbird, which is set up
for my wife's  use, and MessengerPro which I use.

LO has been set up to point to MessengerPro </usr/local/bin/messengerpro>
for sending documents by email but does not honour that path, inasmuch as
it opens Thunderbird each time.

My wife does not have a user account on the computer and I have not set
one up as it would confuse her.  She only uses the computer for email,
browsing the internet and playing card games.

LinuxMint Control Panel contains a Preferred Applications facility but the
only choices in Email are Thunderbird and KMail.

Is anyone able to suggest how I may solve the problem, please?

David

Another spreadsheet destroyed.

A couple of years ago LibreOffice Calc destroyed one of my most important
spreadsheets. Fortunately Apache OpenOffice was able to fix it for me, and
since then I use Apache OpenOffice for all my important work.

Since a few days back though, I started to use LibreOffice Calc (4.2.6.3)
again, also for my important files. I shouldn't have done that, because the
same thing happened again. Fortunately, the spreadsheet could be fixed
again, this time thanks to some backups, but files are supposed to be used
and worked with, not fixed…

The file itself is maybe not that important, but I have been working on it
for almost a decade, so I would probably be somewhat sad if I lost it.
Happy – good, sad – bad… :P

Anyway, it seems that LibreOffice Calc mess up my dialogues. I had three
dialogues and today all the names of all their buttons were replaced with
some default crap. Anyone else experienced this? If so, maybe I (or someone
else) should file a bug report. Fortunately I export all my dialogues and
basic code, so I could easily import them again with Apache OpenOffice. I
tried first with LibreOffice, but when I imported the second dialogue it
crashed.

Ubuntu 14.04
LibreOffice 4.2.6.3.

Kind regards

Connectors in draw.

Hi.
How do I add or remove lines in connectors.
When you right click a connector > connector there is a property line skew.

I am editing a drawing which has a connector with line 1 and line 2 
filled in. I need to add more similar connectors (to avoid objects) but 
can't find how to add extra lines when the standard connector is inserted.

TIA steve

LO and Java 8u25


Hello there,

I have a fresh, clean install of OS X Yosemite on my Mac, along with Java 8u25 and LibreOffice 4.3.2.2.

I can't make LibreOffice "see” Java, as shown on the screen shot below. Any hints to share?

Thanks.

Alain.

Missing feature at LibreOffice Writer.


Hi,
I'm writing this because there is a *missing feature on LibreOffice 
Writer (4.3.2.2) *. I wanted to post online on ask.libreofice but i do 
not have any of the proposed accounts. (most of them are non-libre 
software related..)

*The missing feature:*
When creating text dialogs with the "T" (text) Button, it is not 
possible to change the font color. I was surprised because in 
libreoffice impress it is possible to change the color. So a simple hack 
is to copy paste the text dialog from impress to writer.
The text can be modified and the color will remain. Anyways, the option 
is missing on libreoffice writer.

This email may not be addressed to the good mailing list, if it is that 
the case, please transfer my message! It would be highly appreciated!

Happy hacking ;}

Re: [libreoffice-documentation] Re: MySQL/MariaDB Native Linux connector for LibreOffice 4.2 and 4.3 (32 and 64 bit)

Hi :)
That sounds good! :)  Have you tried the things that Stefan Gruber had
trouble with?  If so it'd be nice to hear which OS you tried it on, which
version of LO and which version of MariasDb.  That might help people
pin-point the problems Stefan has been having.

Many thanks for test-driving the connector!
Regards from
Tom :)

Is there a way for a Basic macro to detect what application is running it?

Here's my problem:

I have both Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice installed and I use them
both. I have quite a few Calc files with Basic macros. Today I found my
first difference between the Basic API in LibreOffice vs. Apache OpenOffice:

Dim Dlg As Object, Ctl As Object
DialogLibraries.LoadLibrary("Standard")
Dlg=CreateUnoDialog(DialogLibraries.Standard.ElDialog)
Ctl=Dlg.getControl("DateField")

Now, I want to use Ctl.setDate(myDate) and myDate=Ctl.getDate(), and here's
the difference:
In Apache OpenOffice, myDate is a Long. Today's date, 2014-10-19, is
represented as 20141019. I made two functions to convert to and from the
format I needed.

When running my macro in LibreOffice, the macro was interrupted by an error
message, of course. After some debugging I found that the LibreOffice
version of Ctl.setDate/Ctl.getDate works with a struct:
Type DateType
Year As Long
Month As Long
Day As Long
End Type

This is of course not a big deal, I can make the macro accept both formats,
but the macro need to know if LibreOffice or Apache OpenOffice is running
it. How can I do that? I have tried to find the answer myself, both using
xray and searching the web, but so far nothing.

Fatal error when exporting a dialogue.

I tried this with the same file in both Apache OpenOffice Calc and
LibreOffice Calc, the same result.

Error message:
Apache OpenOffice Calc: ”StringResourceImpl: No entry for resourceID:”
If I click OK, Apache OpenOffice Calc crash.
The file is saved but loading it doesn't work. Nothing happens.

LibreOffice Calc: ”StringResourceImpl: No entry for resourceID: !!br0ken!!”
LibreOffice Calc crash when clicking OK.
The file is saved but loading it makes LibreOffice Calc crash.

The file is quite big. It takes about 23 seconds to open it with
LibreOffice Calc and 51 seconds with Apache OpenOffice.

Apache OpenOffice 4.1
LibreOffice 4.2
Ubuntu 14.04

My question is:
What does this error message mean?
Can I do anything about it? Like editing my dialogue somehow before trying
to export it? Seems like some parameter somewhere is missing for some
reason.

An earlier version of the dialogue can be exported and imported without any
problems. The difference between the new and the old dialogue is that I
added a label and a number field to the new one. I did that by copying and
editing existing ones. Maybe something was lost during that process.

Re: [libreoffice-documentation] Re: MySQL/MariaDB Native Linux connector for LibreOffice 4.2 and 4.3 (32 and 64 bit)

Ok,

so I have mariabdb installed which is meant to work like a drop in
replacement for mysql. In other stuff I have done, there has been no
problem using mariadb instead of mysql.

I was able to create a simple database in mariadb and open it in base using
the direct connection. I changed some data, saved it and closed base.

I checked in the database on cli and the data had been entered. So I would
say that you could say that it works as advertised.

Cheers
