Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 141925
WriterPerfect not included in Fedora Core 3 openoffice.org
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
The Changelog for openoffice.org-i18n-1.1.2-11.5.fc3.i386.rpm states
that it now includes WriterPerfect, a library for importing Word
Perfect files into OpenOffice. This appears not to be so. If one
downloads the writerperfect RPM for FC2 from
sourceforge.net/projects/libwpd, you'll see it includes the single
file /usr/lib/ooo-1.1/share/uno_packages/WriterPerfect.uno.zip. This
file is not present on stock FC3. Moreover, import of Word Perfect
files does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to open a Word Perfect document from OpenOffice writer.
One gets the dialog box for import of an ASCII text file. Clicking OK
OO should import the Word Perfect document.
In the immortal words of Gilda Radner: "Never mind." If one has the
writerperfect fc2 RPM installed, be sure to erase it after upgrading
to fc3. Afterwards, Word Perfect imports will work fine.
