[Solved] LibreOffice Desktop Icon Untrusted in Ubuntu

Postby Roger Davis » Sun May 10, 2015 8:28 am

I have a launch icon on the desktop for this. It used to work, until the latest(?) update. I can't find what I had to do before to make this work, I had the same problem when originally placing it on the desktop. When I click the icon, I get "The application launcher “libreoffice-startcenter.desktop” has not been marked as trusted. If you do not know the source of this file, launching it may be unsafe."

I tried to click the box "Allow executing file as program", but it is greyed out, so is unresponsive.

How do I fix this?

Are you really using Ubuntu 10.04? and OO 3.2.0? I run OO 4.1.1 on Xubuntu 15.04. My launcher command line is "openoffice4 %U" (no quotes) and this has worked reliably for many ubuntu versions, without any other adjustment.

On desktop icons (as opposed to toolbar launcher icons) Permissions are set so that I have Read Write rights, my group has read write and all others have "read only". Allow execute as program is also ticked.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.8 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

No, 14.04. Guess I need to update my info.

Figured out an answer:
- Open Terminal
- Type "sudo nautilus" (not the ")
- Ignore the messages, go to the opened Nautilus
- Open the Desktop folder
- Find the icon for LibreOffice
- Right click the icon
- Select "Properties"
- Click the "Permissions" tab
- Check the box by "Allow executing file as program"
- RESTART

Should now work.
