We keep all our LibreOffice documents in a shared subdir on a NAS HD. The NAS HD is driven on the network via a Fritz!Box 7390 (www.avm.de) This works well with all our Windows XP and 7 PC's. As we don't want to follow the MS path to Windwos 8 we decided to use OpenSuse 12.3 with KDE instead.
But whenever we try to open with the Linux version of Libreoffice any kind of file on the NAS drive (over the network) we get the message "You are only allowed to access local files"
But if I select the file via Dolphin, I can open the file in Libreoffice without any problem. But this is, on the long run, an unacceptable procedure.
I found on the internet information that said that Libreoffice does not support so called KIO slaves, which I was told is necessary with KDE !?!?!
If you need more information, please send me an email. I can give you my skype name and/or telephone number.
TIA, Joe Herrmann
Operating System: openSUSE
Version: 126.96.36.199 release
Confirmed using 188.8.131.52 under Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit). Currently KDE integration module doesn't support opening\saving via KIO, so it's an enhancement request.
The workaround is: Go to Tools->Options...->General, and activate 'Use LibreOffice dialogs' under 'Open/Save dialogs'.

I tried the work around proposed, but it is not user friendly. It is impossible to train all employees (average Joe) to use such a difficult solution.
I believe this bug maybe related or a duplicate of bug 67527 and bug 49776 shouldnt have been closed as a duplicate of this, as this bug is KDE specific and that bug wasnt.
What is your take on this Maxim?

No. Bug 67527 is about using GIO on KDE system, this one is about KIO support.

Agree. Bug 49776 is either fixed as per Bug 49776 comment 6, or a variation of (one of the issues discussed in) Bug 67527.
