Description Kyle Strickland 2012-03-02 21:20:48 UTC
Description of problem:

I am migrating from Ubuntu to Fedora and I had created some .fodt files there with LibreOffice.  When using LibreOffice on Fedora 16, those files seem to be unsupported.  The icons in Nautilus show up correctly as associated with LibreOffice, but they open as raw XML or as a math formula file.  Also, if I create a new file in Writer, there is no option to save it as a Flat ODF file type.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Create a .fodt file with Ubuntu's LibreOffice (or perhaps the rpms from LibreOffice's site?)

2. Try to open that .fodt file.


1. Create a new file with Writer.

2. From the file save menu, check the file format drop-down to see if "Flat ODF" is in there.
Actual results:

The file does not open properly. / The "Flat ODF" format is not in the drop-down.

Expected results:

The file should open properly. / The "Flat ODF" format should be in the file format drop-down.

hmm, do...

yum -y install libreoffice-xsltfilter

that should install them for you.

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2012-03-06 12:38:31 UTC
we should move the flat format .desktop entries into a .desktop in the xsltfilter package so that clicking on one "would do the right thing" and install that subpackage automatically
