Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 439422
OpenOffice.org cannot open MS Office 2007 files
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:13:17 EDT
Description of problem:
The current version of OpenOffice.org (2.4.0) cannot open & save Microsoft
Office 2007 files (.docx, .pptx, .xlsx). This is a serious stop for users, since
these files has begun to spread.
Until this functionality is available in OpenOffice 3.0, please consider
including in Fedora the odf-converter-integrator package, which is available at
A pre-made RPM file for Fedora is also available at this address.
Are you volunteering to join the Fedora project as a packager and maintain it?
Yes, of course, but I need some precise guidance, since it will the first time
for me to do so. Also, please note that I'm not a programmer and it's not my
code (alpha code...)
Otherwise, I'll be *very* enthusiastic about doing it.
This should get you started:
FWIW from the Oo side in theory this should be redundant with OOo 3.0.0 in the
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
we can close this, since OpenOffice 3.0 is almost out.
