I have a home server running Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) that shares a folder using WebDAV. I can navigate the folder using Nautilus on a client laptop running 9.10 (Karmic) and open any file by double-clicking on them, except for OpenOffice files, in which case I get an error message (see attached screenshot). I also tried from the File -> Open menu item in OO.o with identical results: same error message. Steps to reproduce #1 - via Nautilus - Create a shared directory on a server, share it through WebDAV - Connect to the shared directory using a client machine and add that share to the Nautilus bookmarks - Open the shared drive through Nautilus - Navigate to a directory - Double-click on a non-OO.o file (e.g. a PDF or JPG file) - The file opens normally - Double click on an OO.o file (e.g. a .ods OpenOffice Calc or .odt OpenOffice Writer file) Steps to reproduce #2 - via File -> Open - Create a shared directory on a server, share it through WebDAV - Connect to the shared directory using a client machine and add that share to the Nautilus bookmarks - Start OpenOffice - Select File -> Open - Navigate to a directory - Select an OO.o file to open (e.g. a .ods OpenOffice Calc or .odt OpenOffice Writer file) Expected behaviour - The selected OO.o file opens in the relevant OO.o application Actual behaviour - An error dialogue with the message: General input/output error while accessing /home/user/.gvfs/WebDAV on host/file.ods (see attached screenshot) See more details in the original Ubuntu Launchpad bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/484855

Clarification: the bug occurs both on the version of OO.o shipped with Ubuntu and on the standard Linux version downloaded from the OO.o website.

Can I ask if there's any progress on this? It's the one issue which is preventing others in my office from engaging with the idea of linux on the desktop - I have to copy documents from the webdavs share onto my local drive in order to edit them, and then copy them back. It looks poor, when everyone on windows can open files from the share directly.
