Description nrbrtx 2015-03-01 19:39:48 UTC
I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.5 with all updates and Apache OpenOffice Version: 4.1.1
from SourceForge (

Steps to reproduce:
1. I have shared my Public folder using nautilus-share (0.7.3-1ubuntu2), placed test.odt file in it.
2a. I navigate Nautilus to smb://localhost, clicked Open in Terminal here (or launch terminal and "cd ~/.gvfs/public\ on\ localhost").
2b. I mount my share with ""sudo mount.cifs //localhost/public /mnt -o uid=`id -u`,gid=`id -g`,guest,sec=none,noperm", then "cd /mnt"

3. Run "/opt/openoffice4/program/soffice test.odt" in terminal.
4. Got "Document in Use" window with text:

   Document file 'test.odt' is locked for editing by:

   Unknown User

   Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing.

   Open Read-Only     Open Copy     Cancel

5a. If I click 'Open Read-Only' the document is opened in read-only.
5b. If I click 'Open Copy' the "Untitled 1" document is opened.
5c. Cancel closes this window.

Expected results:
   The "test.odt" files is opened in read-write mode, user can edit it.

Actual results:
   User can't edit original document (see pp. 4-5 above).

This functionality is essential. Please fix this bug.

This bug exists in LibO too (see
