Default How to report a bug.

I have run across a major problem with libreoffice on kubuntu - you can't
use the Filter field to open a file of a specific type. Apparently the
Export dialog is also similarly messed up. I see that this bug has been
found and fixed in Fedora, but I am not seeing any activity in either KDE
itself or in kubuntu.


https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?format=multiple&id=820439

Can someone tell me the proper way to report this issue both for kubuntu
and KDE? I don't see it on bugs.kde.org.

Hi Mitch,
LibreOffice is independent from KDE, that's why you don't see the package
on bugs.kde.org.

The proper way to file a bug report is this:
1) file a report on LibreOffice's own bug tracking system at [1];
2) file a report on Launchpad, linking the upstream bug report using the
** "Also affects distribution" link and pasting the URL to the upstream
** report in the "URL" field.

Hope this helps,
Alessandro Menti

Thank you, it does. From further discussion on the Fedora bugzilla, I see
that the the fix has already been made on the libreoffice-kde package
upstream, so what needs to be done is to backport the patch to the current
kubuntu version. I will therefore only need to do (2).


The issue is actually pretty serious: because of the bug, you can't use
the filter dropdown on the Open dialog. This means you can't open a
tab-delimited file with extension .txt as a spreadsheet, because if you
use the open dialog without using the Filter dropdown, it always opens as
a text file.

The procedure world be the same: file report in launchpad and link to any relevant bug in LO bug tracker and also to the relevant fix you found.

On launchpad you would file it against libreoffice-kde.

Also a work around is to remove the libreoffice-kde package and use LO's native file picker.
