    Thumbs up Create Document Menu

    Hi,

    On my right click in the desktop I get a menu titled "Create Document" where I find only Blank Document link to generate a flat file.

    I have installed Open Office and just wanted to know how to enable creating Open Office Document, Spreadsheet and Presentation come under the Create Document Menu.

    Regards,

    tvks

    You are on Gnome, right?

    Make a new folder under you user's home called "Templates" (~/Templates) and
    create there the files you would like to appear on right-click menu, i.e.:

    ***
    html document.html
    writer file.odt
    text file.txt
    ***

    And so on...

    Greetins,

    what windows manager are you using (KDE3, KDE4, Gnome, Xfce, other)??
    i ask, because her (using KDE3) i can right click desktop and choose
    "Create new" and then can choose from long list of things to creat:

    Folder
    Text File
    HTML File
    Illustration Document
    OpenDocument Drawing
    OpenDocument Presentation
    OpenDocument Spreadsheet
    OpenDocument Text
    Link to location
    Link to application
    Link to device (cdrom, floppy disk, camera, on and on)

    maybe the question i should ask you is: How did you install
    OpenOffice? Why wasn't it installed during the default install? which
    brings up: how did you install openSUSE (as EVERY way i'm aware of
    will install OpenOffice _unless_ you do a custom install and choose to
    NOT install it)....the reason i ask is *if* it is correctly installed
    (using YaST or zipper) it is automatically added to your menus...

    [if you installed the regular "windows way" of going to the OpenOffice
    web site and downloading a file to double click on, then you need to
    break THAT old habit!]

    this is NOT a last century operating system!
