Desktop link does not open document ??


I made a desktop icon of this, but it does not open.

swriter is set to my default work processor.

Quote:
/root/Documents/CX7_Maintenance_Log.odt
Same thing with rtf files. ??

I wonder if it is related to OpenOffice which I replaced LibreOffice with ?

Do you have mimeinfo.cache file? It should be located somewhere under /usr/share/ directory (for me it's /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache) If you have it look through it for stings like
Code:
text/rtf=libreoffice-writer.desktop;
Try to add this string if such a string missed


Another one way to open document with the LibreOffice is: right click on file -> Properties -> File Type Options. There you can associate any program to particular file type.

This file is located in /root, user has no access to root home directory.

All Puppy Linux versions have root access by default.

I found a workaround.

Quote:
#!/bin/bash
#---------------------------------------------------#
# Linux Puppy 6.3.0 SiegeWorks 2016 -
# -
# For some reason, desktop links using OpenOffice -
# Do NOT work ?? -
#---------------------------------------------------#

swriter /root/Documents/CX7_Maintenance_Log.odt
Teufel,

I have no mimeinfo.cache.
