Description Thomas Seeling 2016-01-27 12:48:04 UTC
I can convert normal files on the command line but conversion fails for password-protected files.
I'd like to see some kind of option to provide the password for the file.

libreoffice -env:UserInstallation=file:///tmp/lo-tmp.$$ --headless --convert-to html test.ods

silently does *nothing*. Not even an error message that a protected file can't be converted.

Sounds like a fair request.

RHEL 7.7, Libreoffice
Bug is still present but at least it gives an error message now.
Message is not reporting actual problem, but it's an improvement.

Error: source file could not be loaded

Command used to test:

scalc -env:UserInstallation=file:///tmp/lo-tmp.$$ --headless --convert-to html test.ods

Repro 7.4+. As in bug 148253, I note that failed convert should give error status that is not 0.
