Description Kami 2012-01-22 05:23:34 UTC
If you install gallery that contains external links (instead of embedding vector graphic) to jpeg or png files the external files can not viewed from LibreOffice. The path of such images has wrong value. For example:

The real path of gallery element is:
~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/uno_packages/cache/uno_packages/lu1ik7gv.tmp_/OOOP-accessories- after the gallery extension installation however the LibO search it in:
~/.config/libreoffice/3/user/user/gallery/Draws/People/Baboo1.png that causes uninsertable gallery element.

Few users also has same problem under windows too:

Hi Kami,

Do you have such a gallery (or link to it) for me, so that I can test?
Thanks - Cor

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
