LibreOffice Base Forms

Submitted by Tonyn on October 11, 2011 - 7:46am

Have recently upgrade LibreOffice to V3.4.X and noted that when creating a Base form using the wizard, the styles at step 7 are missing but they were present in V3.3x.
Is this an installation error? Can I copy the necesary files from an earlier version? If so which files are they and where can I find them?

Many Thanks

Libre office update problem

Submitted by Steve.Alston on September 18, 2011 - 9:57pm


I've just upgraded 3 thumb drive Libre Office installations using the built in portable Apps installer.

The Y:\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable\App\libreoffice\Basis\share\template\pt-BR\wizard\styles folder on my 4gb thumbdrive is corrupted and according to Windows explorer contains 40,204,611,584 bytes of data!

The disk is still readable and all the software appears to work fine, BUT....

The problem is that I can't delete that folder (or any above it) AND worse, on the other two thumb drives I had this program installed on I've had SERIOUS problems.

LO 3.4.3: Can't open file with space in the name

Submitted by IndraS on September 16, 2011 - 1:19am

I know that it is a known bug in LO.
However, I am wondering if there is any plan (from LO team) to fix it.
I browse LO official website but I can't find any information about it; They require to subscribe to their mailing list, which I think that too troublesome for me.

I try to search in Google and find out some suggestion to remove any space from the file name; Well, it is a silly solution, something like "you have rats in your house and you are requested to only consume food, which rats can't eat"

ClamAV finds PUA in sdmi.dll (LibreOffice 3.4.3)

Submitted by furryspider on September 15, 2011 - 2:36pm

Hey guys,

just wanted to get your thoughts on this:
ClamAV finds a PUA called 'BlackRain' in this file:

As such, it isn't an issue with the launcher, and I guess it's not the dll compression either, seeing there's only one file affected.

For comparison, I've downloaded the 'regular' LibreOffice and installed it, and ClamAV doesn't find anything there. Also the old OpenOfficePortable 3.1.1 that I'm using has a file of the same name, but without malware alert.

[Fixed] 3.4.3/3.4.4 fails to start

Submitted by ottosykora on September 12, 2011 - 4:12am

Tried on XP, w7 and now also on w2k (just to see what it does) and did so far not manage to launch 3.4.3

it crashes on loading some of the extensions bundled extensions, either nonlinear math or some others.
It crashes also apparently on file soffice.bin.exe

Tried clean install, same effect, xp, w7 are not able to launch it at all.

Furthermore, when attempting to launch it from the next computer, I am getting a message saying that other users are running this copy already. As user is indicated the name of the computer where the stick was inserted as last.
