Re: [K12OSN] Setting Open Office 2.0 to save as a Doc by default.

Then to update me on OOo2.0 how would you set it to default if you
didn't have your script? There is still an openoffice.conf and the line
I listed in my last post. But if that doesn't work then what do you
configure so that it will (a .conf file please, not via GUI or OOo2.0
interface since I already know how to do that). Thanks.


Ah, I assume you are using Debian or Ubuntu? Questions about different
distributions are quite welcome here, but please do indicate whenever
you are using a distribution other than K12LTSP. Since this is the
support forum for K12LTSP, there is a tendancy to assume K12LTSP
unless otherwise stated.

I booted my laptop up into Ubuntu and it does in deed have a /etc/openoffice/openoffice.conf file that contains a OOO_MS_DEFAULT=1
setting. It didn't work for me, however.

Attached are the patches and script that I use to change these
defaults on K12LTSP. I verified that they work on my Ubuntu laptop.

Save all four files in the same directory, then run:

	sh ./openoffice-ms-format-defaults.sh
