I ran it as root, but it didn't change anything for existing users
(didn't try creating a new user afterward). Didn't there use to be an
icon on root's desktop for running this?  Or was it run by default
during installation?  Should the script still work?


Running /opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/openoffice-ms-format- defaults.sh
should reset the defaults back to the MS formats.

If a user changes their personal settings, it will over-ride the
defaults. You might try nuking a user's ~/.openoffice* directory so that
they pick back up the default settings.

Removing the users ~/.openoffice* does fix it.  Did the
openoffice-ms-format-defaults.sh previously run automatically or have I
just forgotten that I ran it manually in the past?

Thanks Eric.


The script runs automatically at install time. Updates can over-write
the changes.

As far as I know, a user's setting will only over-ride the defaults if
the user manually changes their settings.

I have a fresh K12LTSP 5EL install and my test user defaults to saving as .odt. I did run a 'yum update' after the installation which installed an OpenOffice.org update. Could the update have caused the defaults to reset, or did the script maybe not run at install time?

I ran /opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/openoffice-ms-format-defaults.sh again and nuked the test user's .openoffice.org2.0 directory, but Writer still defaults to saving as .odt. Is this a known issue?

I believe the /opt/ltsp/templates/k12linux/openoffice-ms-format- defaults.sh script has an error in the 64-bit version. It tries to access files in /usr/lib, while they are in /usr/lib64. I don't know who wrote or maintains this script, but could this be fixed for the 64-bit version of K12LTSP (5EL)?
