[Solved] Launchers in Dash & launchers in search

Postby rogonow » Fri Sep 20, 2013 12:08 pm


It is impossible to pin the openoffice applications in the Dash, on the left after launch. Could that be fixed for next version please?

I had to search for a link to launch Openoffice 4. That took a wile. I found nothing of Openoffice with "Dash Home".
I post it's path here to help others: /opt/openoffice4/program/simpress

I still have no idea where the icons are. I was unable to add it manually.

Maybe my expectations for this version are to high.

There is still hope...

EDIT: I'm satisfied with my shortcuts that I made on my desktop.

I was certainly able to do it on XFCE-Panel in Xubuntu 13.04

name: OpenOffice 4.0.0
command: openoffice4 %U
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.8 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

There is only one OpenOffice application and this application is dockable in the dash. The starter starts OpenOffice with its welcome screen (all components, recent docs, templates, extensions etc)
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.
