Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Write Version: Unspecified
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: Write saving bug OpenOffice KUbuntu
Cc: dfarning, sascha_silbe Distribution/OS: OLPC
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


The Write application is unable to open documents originally created within Write that have been transferred via pendrive and opened in other text editors, specifically OpenOffice running on KUbuntu, even if they had not been modified by OpenOffice.

Original Text:
2) She saves Write documents in the pendrive, then she opens them at
home with KUbuntu and OpenOffice, then she saves the modified document
in the pendrive and tries to open it in the XO with Write. She claims
she can't open it even if the document was not modified.

Thanks for entering this ticket. Next step I would say is to get copies of the documents involved in this and see which are the format(s) and why Write cannot read them.

It was decided in the ml that it's most probably an issue with the old behavior of usb sticks.
