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?
