Unfortunately because of the dependencies I upgraded to openoffice 2 version to
3.11 version. I am using mandriva distro . When I tried to open an openoffice
document from remote computer via samba share document is opening as a blank .
It was not like this before . If I copy thye document to my local computer
everything is ok. And also when I paste a web page it is awesome . New version
worse than olders.

Please contribute correct information in future!
Do I understand that right, you are able to save a document on samba shared folder?
Did you already check whether here are other issues concering samba problems?

Hi ,

Dear Ulrike,

Sorry for my urgent issue I was very busy with this and other bugs and may be I
can't explain enough cause my english is not good enough.Thank you for your
I have been checked the other issues before submit and yes I can save to the
samba share folder in a server from local computer correctly , but when I opened
an *.odt document from a server , samba shared folder , openoffice opening just
an empty page . Normally it should show the document content , however it is
only possible to copy the document to the local computer then open with openoffice.
