Description Benjamin Kahn 2013-05-09 12:31:19 EDT
Description of problem:
LibreOffice can't open document from a WedDav (dav/davs) share mounted by Nautilsu

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount a web dav server in nautilus
2. Find a LibreOffice document
3. double click on it to open the document
Actual results:
LibreOffice starts, but displays an error soon after: "General input/output error while accessing /run/user/500/gvfs/dav:host=mydavserver.com,ssl=true,prefix=%2Fwebdav/testdocument.odt."

Expected results:
File should open

Additional info:
caolan reports that this may be related to: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=885156#c15 in that the davs URL is handled internally by LibreOffice.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

Can you still reproduce this?

The line


in the various /usr/share/applications/libreoffice-*.desktop should prevent Nautilus from calling LO with a /run/user/500/gvfs/... pathname anyway (and should instead call it with a dav:... URL).
Comment 3 Benjamin Kahn 2015-04-14 13:53:38 EDT
It works on Fedora 21! Sweet!
