Description flying-sheep 2019-02-20 11:44:34 UTC
Description:
There are some document templates here: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/extras/source/shellnew

They ony get used on Windows. For Linux, we need to install them to /usr/share/templates/ and create some .desktop files in the same directory that look like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=LibreOffice Writer...
Comment=Enter LibreOffice Writer filename:
Type=Link
URL=./soffice.odt
Icon=libreoffice-oasis-text

Here’s a discussion about the topic: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/kde-edition-dolphin-create-new-menu-comes-pre-populated-with-libre-office-templates/69261

Steps to Reproduce:
“right click → Create new ...” into a folder window in Dolphin

Actual Results:
The menu doesn’t contain LibreOffice entries.

Expected Results:
The menu should contain one entry for each LibreOffice document type.


Reproducible: Always
