You're probably not missing anything. My best guess is that somehow the Exec= argument in /usr/share/applications/LibreOffice Writer.desktop ends with a %U. Other distros need that; Puppies do not. But if your LibreOffice is like mine, the file in /usr/share/applications is only a symbolic link to one in /opt/LibreOffice. Where ever the actual file is, open it in geany and delete the %U. Save the change. While your in that folder, check to see if other LIbreOffice desktop files also include a %U, and delete them. Then restart-x. Remember to Save so that the changes you've made become part of your SaveFile/Folder which will take precedence over the builtin file.

Thank you very much for this answer, mikesir. When you say to "Remember to Save so that the changes you've made become part of your SaveFile/Folder which will take precedence over the builtin file. ", you are talking about saving the changes using the text editor like Geany, right?

libre6.1.desktops.pet


pet overwrites icons and desktop files from the sfs with sets copied from my 6.1 pet install. adding the icons was probably unnecessary, but this should fix any sfs installation's .desktop and menu entry problems.

(pet shouldn't be necessary and the redundant icon install will do no harm, but if the LO 6.1 sfs doesn't launch for you, try this)

That to. As you have a Frugal Install unless you execute a Save, either manually via a Save Icon on your desktop, Save entry on your Menu, or select Save on shudown/reboot, the changes (edits) you make will not be preserved. Until then, they only exist in Random Access Memory which is cleared on shutdown/reboot. So that was the "Save" of system/configuration changes I was referring to.

Explanation: On bootup of a Frugally installed Puppy, it copies into RAM some files from those files you have on your Storage Media (CD, Hard-drive, USB-Key) and creates links (inodes) to where the rest of the files pertaining to that application of module are to be found. As you use an application, those links are followed in order to locate those parts of an application you now need and copy any required file into RAM. So, your actual Operating System is always in RAM.

When an application SFS, such as LibreOffice.sfs is loaded into that system, some of its files are also copied into RAM, and the links (inodes) created point to the rest of the application (including configuration files and the desktop files) in the SFS. Puppies, however, are structured to give priority to files in the SaveFile/Folder. When you configure an application, or substitute a file, or edit a desktop file, you are also creating a new link or changing the link (inode) as to where a required file (and its contents) is to be located. But that change only exists in RAM until you execute a "system" Save, which writes it into your SaveFile/Folder in storage, and changes the inode (link) to the file now in your SaveFile/Folder.

PostPosted: Thu 13 Sep 2018, 11:44    Post subject: Unwanted italicazations -- LibreWriter 60.1_64_en-us_xz.sfs  

Hi All,

I'm using LibreWriter 60.1_64_en-us_xz.sfs on two computers. Whenever I press the "/" key LibreWriter italicizes the text which is then typed. Rather annoying.

Anyone else experiencing this?

How does one turn that effect off?

checked it with a 64 bit LibreOffice 6.1.3 pet and it doesn't happen for me. maybe check your autocorrect or autotext settings--sounds like what it used to do on my setups when i typed three consecutive asterisks followed by a return--it would automatically turn them into a solid line across the text. the fix was to blank the autotext (or autocorrect) entry for it (it's been a while, and the gui has changed, but i think it used to be under tools or formatting).
