In an impress presentation macro execution is assigned to an object, the macro 
is executed twice when started in full screen presentation. 
This also applies to the latest release candidate. 
I am using debian sarge with xorg packages from

While looking for a way to play a video, I found this ugly trick :

I put the file "kshell" in /opt/ containing the script:

exec `echo $2 | cut -b 8-`

This will allow to launch directly the program without having to go through a
browser like konqueror or firefox.
So you can again use the "run program" interaction to start mplayer in impress.
For me, it is the only solution to start a video.

But even with this trick, the program is launched twice, as with a macro
intercation. I think the function launching an external program is the same and
is broken.

Please help solving this bug since it is the _only_ convenient way to play a
video under linux. So it is really _critical_ for many users and I have seen
many comments about that on the forums.

I'm voluntering to solve this, but I need at least a pointer to the file or the
directory where to look in since I am totally newby with oo programming and the
source is like a jungle for me.

Another temporary solution is this: 
Global cnt1 as Integer 
Sub startvideo 
	if cnt1=0 then 
shell("/usr/bin/mplayer",10,"-fs /home/markert/sync/videos/mirrorbot/eve_motor.avi",true) 
		cnt1 = 1 
		cnt1 = 0 
	end if 
End Sub 
Not very nice, but lets the video play only once in slide show mode. If 
something fails or OOo decides to work correctly, one simply has to click a 
second time to actually launch the video. 
It doesn't work with a static cnt1 variable (why?).

Please attach a small sample file.
Comment 7 christian.guenther 2007-02-12 13:24:25 UTC
I can't reproduce the bug.
could you attach the macro to reproduce the bug?
