LibreOffice is giving me heartache when trying to open a file on my local network server. I get an error saying that function is not supported on this OS. So I tried setting up a remote service.
No matter what I try when setting up a remote file server, it doesn’t work. I know I must be doing it rong but the instructions are not very clear.
Here’s the route to my server, is this what I put in as the host?
shared folder name is shared
I’ve tried that but no go.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am not using the default firewall shipped with EnOS so I am afraid I won’t be of any much more help to you. Hopefully you will figure it out by yourself. If not, don’t hesitate to post back nand wait for other members to chime in.
Sorry for the delayed response. Wife had me painting rooms in the house.
The server is a small PC running KDE Neon with a folder shared. Everyone has permissions to do everything in that folder. I can use Kwrite’s open file menu to access a txt file on the server. Everyone has no problem opening files on the server. The only app we are having a problem with is LibreOffice.
At first, I couldn’t even go to the server through the OS file manager and open a LibreOffice file. I would get a grayed out icon in the Task Bar that I could only close.
When I try to use the Open Remote option in LibreOffice, a window opens that says “Nonexistant File”.
I’m sure I have the server connection set incorrectly in LibreOffice. Danged if I can figure out what it wants. I’m assuming it is a Windows share. When looking at the path in Kwrite’s open file screen it shows smb://firstname.lastname@example.org/shared/
Or am I rong about that.
