Functions missing from gnumeric
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
Gnumeric is missing standard functions. For example the ONLY maths functions
available are sum and product
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Select the f(x) icon.
3.Select "Mathematics" as the category of functions
Sum and Product are diplayed
Heaps more functions like there used to be with earlier releases. eg where is sqrt?
The plugins seem to all be there in /usr/lib/gnumeric/1.6.3/plugins.
I ran an strace -e trace=file gnumeric and the xml files in the plugin director
are all loaded, but the .so files are never accessed.

I've had this bug report before. Please goto tools->plugins and make sure that
you have all the relevant plugins enabled.
Did you install from the livecd? That was involved the last time someone
reported the plugin settings being off by default.
Anyways closing this as works for me. Please reopen if the plugin settings are
not the culprit.
enabling the plugins does the trick. The thing is, I don't recall ever having to
do this before. No it is not livecd. This did happen following an upgrade (not a
fresh install) of Fedora 7.
I did have a little trouble with getting gnome to work properly on my personal
account after the upgrade until I cleaned out some gconf files. Perhaps I messed
up the gnumeric configuration in the process.
A quick check shows that logging in as another user, things are OK by default.
Sorry for wasting everyones time!
