    Default openoffice the process for the file protocol died unexpectedly

    Hi I often get this message-

    the process for the file protocol died unexpectedly

    when I try to "save as" from calc openoffice 3.2

    If I cancel the message window, most times I can still save the file but find the response when moving to different files in the save window very slow.

    Sometimes the program crashes. sometimes the file just saves ok

    Any help would be great.

    Hello san100,

    First of all could you tell us which version of openSUSE you have?
    If you use KDE or GNOME?

    There are more problems with the file dialog of OpenOffice.org.
    Here are a few forum topics about it:


    If you read them you'll see that the solution is to disable/uninstall the kde4 extension for OpenOffice.org.
    To disable them start oowriter, go to Tools -> Options and select "General"
    Enable the option "Use OpenOffice.org dialogs" and press OK

    Good luck!
    Where did I put my coffee cup?
    dir -R /home/* | grep "coffee cup"
