Subject Allow to turn OOo-file locking off.
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2012 20:02:44 GMT

Dear Developer team,

   After a deep search, i reached to a possible (possible) and definitive solution to disable
the "lock" file creation.

   The "lock" file is created when you open any document on OpenOffice, however, i always
found in the results that it is not a critical function
   and i had proved it when i opened a file, deleted the lock file, and has no able to open
it from other computer on workgroup while its remain
   open on original computer (System Win XP 32-bits).

   The solution found inform that i only need enter on directory "...aoo-3.4.0/main/officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/"
and, inside
   the file "Common.xcu", is a parameter "UseDocumentOOoLockFile", of Boolean type, that i
only need change the value to disable the locking file

   I tried to apply this solution, but on the "Common.xcu" file do not exist such parameter,
i believe that it had existed on previous versions,
   but is not present on AOO 3.4. I kindly ask you to answer two question:

      1. Can i disable the lock file creation?

      2. If i can, are there a easy manner to me to compile the all stuff and create a installation

   I really know that i want so pretty much (may be a "Hello World" tutorial is more adequate
for me ;) ), but my organization have problems
   every day with documents that has been lock and no more remain in use.

   OBS.: Simply delete the "lock" file is a easy and fast solution, however, the final users
must be oriented every time about how to do it.

My best regards,

Emanuel de Almeida
