Subject [Bug 119382] Options->General->Use openoffice file dialogs not present in dialog

Options->OOO->General tab Missing checkbox to deselect default dialogs

This is the screenshot from the link in the bug report attached to preserve it
along with this bug. In the screenshot you will see that the option to deselect
the default OO dialogs is not present. GTK and GTK2 are installed and OO uses
the GTK dialogs when launched in gnome. However, OO will not even see the GTK
dialogs when launched from KDE3.

I have managed to get GTK dialoags with OO in TDE 3.5.12 by using the old trick
of exporting:

export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome

In that instance the setting under General to "[ ] Use Dialogs"
is present and can be de-selected to get the GTK dialog to work in TDE.

OO should find the GTK dialogs and present the option in General regardless of
whether the environment variable OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome is set. This looks
like a problem potentially created by removing the kde chooser integration
code. For some reason, the file picker setting does not find the GTK dialogs
from KDE unless the OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP environment variable is set.

That is just the way it looks from my user standpoint. I could be wrong, but I
can confirm that I get the option to disable the Dialogs only
when I export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome under TDE.
