Description Bill Nottingham 2009-04-28 13:04:35 EDT
Description of problem:

Ran 'ooffice <somepresentation>.odp &'

I get a dialog that says:

OpenOffice.org Registration

You now have the opportunity to support and contribute to the fastest growing open source community in the world. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade.
2. Start OO.o
Comment 1 Caolan McNamara 2009-04-28 17:49:08 EDT
Yeah, I know. Next build should 

not ask this on a fresh start that has no ~/.openoffice.org* dir
not ask this on an upgrade from F-10
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2009-04-29 03:37:39 EDT
It will be the case that if 3.1.0-10.2.fc11 has been used then upgrades from *that* version will ask to register (workaround to avoid permanent upgrade-itis is to blow away ~/.openoffice.org), but upgrades from previous version won't. And fresh installs won't either.
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2009-05-01 06:59:13 EDT
Good in 3.1.0-11.2.f11.

No dialog if no ~/.openoffice.org dir
No dialog if an ~/.openoffice.org dir from *before* 3.1.0-10.2.f11 exists, i.e. F-10 upgrade scenario

If you have run OOo 3.1.0-10.2 and *already* got a dialog, then you'll probably continue to get the dialog from here to eternity at some stage or another so easiest to explain thing to do is remove your ~/.openoffice.org dir
