Description Petr Mladek 2011-05-04 05:33:32 UTC
I am unable to open documents using relative paths and soffice wrapper:

The following command:

    ~/Documents> /opt/libreoffice/program/soffice test.odt

shows window with error message:

    /opt/libreoffice/basis3.4/program/test.odt does not exist

Note that the document exitst:

    ~/Documents> ll test.odt
    -rw-r--r-- 1 pmladek users 12760 2008-11-10 20:32 test.odt
    ~/Documents> pwd

I guess that it is related to the oosplash.bin wrapper.

Michael, could you please have a look? I think that Kendy somehow has solved this in the older implementation for Go-oo long time ago.
Comment 2 Michael Meeks 2011-05-04 11:16:47 UTC
sure; in progress ...
Comment 3 Michael Meeks 2011-05-04 11:28:20 UTC
this is down to 'pagein' calling a chdir that was not expected - what an odd piece of code; I need to hack the arguments up to not do that; by avoiding a -L parameter; should be easy enough.

fixed and pushed to libreoffice-3-4.
