Can't launch .odt files in 2.77.02
« on: October 14, 2009, 02:03:52 PM »
Hi,

Am i missing a plugin or somethin'?
FARR won't launch .odt files.

OpenOffice is sitting idle on the Taskbar waiting for command.

Is .odt file type associated with OpenOffice? And if it is, have you tried changing the launch method (Program Options - Settings - General - Launch Method)?
It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.

skajfes,

I thought any file should open with its' corresponding program by default.
Anyway, i right clicked on an .odt file and sure enough, there was no default program assigned to it.
Have assigned OWriter and it's okay now.

Thanks!
