[Solved] Where is the configuration file?

Postby Dor » Tue Sep 24, 2013 1:20 am

Hi,

I've been trying for hours to search for the configuration file (XML?) but didn't manage to find it.
Do you know the path?

I've tried in:
  • /usr/lib/openoffice
  • ~/.openoffice.org/3/user
  • /etc/openoffice

Logic says it should be in "~/.openoffice.org/3/user".

In general, I'm trying to temporarily disable the option called "Save AutoRecovery information every" via bash (or maybe I'll use python to help me in this).

Thank you.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

It's in the profile (~/.openoffice.org/3/user), see [Tutorial] The User Profile. Look at the registrymodifications.xcu file.

Hi Hagar Delest,

I found that OO creates config files based on the delta of change from the default configuration.

For example, if the default value of "Save AutoRecovery information every" is ENABLE, then by disabling it - a config file is created in "~/.openoffice.org/3/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Recovery.xcu" which contain the delta of change, means it contain the value of DISABLE (or 'false', as actually written in that file).

Thank you!
