Description Kris Moore 2009-07-14 14:30:03 UTC
Found a bug in OO when trying to use extension template packages, but it may effect other extensions as well. Installing a template package such as one from Sun:


The actual installation seems to go just fine. However, when you go to use a new template, OO throws an error: 

/usr/home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r/uno_packages/cache/uno_packages/yTznki_/OOOP-templates-separated-en-US- does not exist

When we dig deeper into this, we find a very similar path in the .openoffice.org folder:

/usr/home/kris/.openoffice.org/3/user/uno_packages/ <everything after this point is the same)

The only differences are 3 -> 3r, and user/uno_packages is becoming uno_packages.


We can fix the issue this way:

mkdir /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r
ln -s /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3 /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r
ln -s /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3/user/uno_packages /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r/uno_packages

After creating the directory / symlink, the templates all work like a champ. 

This is obviously a workaround, but now that this is known, maybe somebody can figure out where in the OO code this path error is occuring.
How-To-Repeat: Simply install the template package mentioned above.
