Description Stephen Walton 2004-12-06 05:02:07 UTC
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):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to open a Word Perfect document from OpenOffice writer.

Actual results:

One gets the dialog box for import of an ASCII text file.  Clicking OK
produces garbage.

Expected results:

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.
