This issue affects both OO 4.1.0 and OO 4.1.1, delivered by Hipster. There is some issue with filter. In "Save As" dialog ODF and Star Office formats are shown without description (for example, just "(.odt)" instead of "ODF Text Document (.odt)"). It seems that something hasn't properly loaded. And when you chouse .odt format and click "Save" nothing happens, just save dialog reappears. However, if you open existing ODF document, it can be edited and saved.

OpenOffice is still a big brand.
Should be fixed if possible instead.
Recommend posting to Mail list to ask for more contributors for fixing it

  • Subject changed from OpenOffice can't create new ODF documents to Drop Apache OpenOffice

Our openoffice is broken and can't save documents in Open Document Format or Microsoft XML formats. Also current 4.1.2 version is affected by CVE-2016-1513.
As SFE localhostoih repository provides more-or-less up-to-date libreoffice package, which is actively maintained, we don't want to duplicate work.

To install packages from localhostoih repository, do

# pkg set-publisher -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoih/ localhostoih
