--- Comment #1 from Ariel Constenla-Haile <> ---
I've no idea what MATE is, but looks like based in Gnome.
Try the following:

* Go to the menu "Tools" - "Options...". In the Options" dialog, select
"" - "General". Between "Help" and "Document status" you should
see a fixed line "Open/Save dialogs" with a check box "Use
If you see this check box, uncheck it, so that you use the system's dialogs
instead of OO's.

* If you don't see this option to switch to system's dialogs, then try the

- open a terminal
- export these variables:
  export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN="gtk";export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP="gnome"
- execute OO from this terminal:
- go back to the "Tools" - "Options..." dialog, you may see now the option to
use system's dialog

If this worked, add these two lines in ~/.bashrc

export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN="gtk"
export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP="gnome"

this way you don't need to execute OO from a terminal with those variables set.
