OpenOffice - Templates Not Present

Postby drryan » Fri Jul 24, 2009 8:51 am

Please forgive me if this is an old question but it is about to drive me crazy.
I have upgraded to OO 3.01 using Synaptic. Everything works fine with one notable exception.
When I install templates they are not present even though the "Extension Manager" shows that they are present. I have looked at the "paths" statement which is quite long due to storing my templates in other places in the past. Perhaps I have messed this up with a semicolon in the wrong place or something. I have reviewed it closely and do not see any mistakes. The other strange thing which is related to this is that I have purposely trashed (changed the name) my specific user profile for OO and yet it still loads up as if it has a profile somewhere to draw information from.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess I don't pay enough attention, I don't know what the Extension manager is, though I do understand that OpenOffice can be extended..
OK, I see, it is under tools Extension manager
--not what you would use to install templates.., if you check openOffice site and see which extensions are available
http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wik ... ge_Manager

In OpenOffice (writer)
    File>Templates>Organize..
    Tools>Options>OpenOffice.org>Paths
Do any of the wizards work,
Mint menu>All Applications>Office>OpenOffice.org Word Processor

In a terminal, check
    locate template
    /usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.0/share/template/wizard/letter/sl/pri-bottle_l.ott
    locate *.stw
    /usr/lib/openoffice/basis3.0/share/template/en-US/internal/html.stw

Screenshot, what is Extension manager..
