          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 119381
                CC: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
          Assignee: uineedsconfirm@ui.openoffice.org
           Summary: Reactivate KDE3 file chooser for Trinity Desktop and
                    openSuSE
          Severity: enhancement
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Code
                OS: All
          Reporter: drankinatty@suddenlinkmail.com
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: version58
         Component: ui
           Product: ui

The code that allows native kde3 file dailog use with openoffice should be
re-enabled to support Trinity Desktop (TDE) as well as openSuSE that will
continue offering KDE3 as a supported part of its distribution with the 12.2
release.

Libre has agreed to re-enable the KDE3 file dialog integration in its upcoming
3.6 release in response to request from the Trinity developer. See:
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2012-May/031676.html

I would like to see OO do this as well. The ability to use native file dialogs
with OO could make the difference between users choice of OO or LO as the
default file dialog on both has long been inadequate. If TDE provided a patch,
would you consider re-enabling the KDE3 dialog integration to support TDE as
well as the major distros that have gone back to supporting that KDE3? If so I
will work to provide the patch.

No matter how you slice it, the default file chooser that ships with OO is just
plain frustrating.
