Description bollin 2007-12-07 14:01:00 UTC
Note: the component and subcomponent of my report might not be correct but I did
not find a better one. My report is not valid only for writer but for all
components. The version is 2.3.1.

Problem:

The scripts ooffice and soffice always forks into a background process.

Request:

There should be a way to start OOorg in the foreground.

Rationale:

KDE provides a useful tool 'kioexec' which does work only with programs that do
not go into background when started. There are probably more use cases for my
request.
