Description dexterthrowaway 2005-06-30 07:48:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The original OOo 2.0 beta included with FC4 created a configuration directory in the home users directory as ".openoffice.org2.0".

The recently released version creates it as "" and ignores (does not migrate) settings from the old ".openoffice.org2.0" directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to openoffice 1.9.112-1.1.0.fc4
2. Run any OOo application
3. Check home directory, the new directory is created, the old is retained.

Actual Results:  Old settings are not used or migrated.

Expected Results:  Either:
the ".openoffice.org2.0" directory is retained.
the old settings from ".openoffice.org2.0" are migrated to "".

Additional info:

Just a note, when I say "", the directory is literally that. %USERDIR is not a variable that has any value.

Another note... it seems to be this patch, but I'm not sure.

It seems to have been for 1.9.85, but this didn't occur in what was included in FC4 which was 1.9.104.

I have found exactly the same behaviour with the recent release of OOo.

back to 2.0 in 1.9.113 (rawhide) will be in fc4 updates soon
