    Default KDE desktop context menu - how to create new docs

    I have searched high and low for what is probably a simple answer ... how does one include an option under 'Create New' for a libreoffice document ... or any other i might add .. all i get is 'New .... Folder, Text File, HTML doc ... is there some way i can expose 'New' from other applications in this context menu.

    Thanks.

    The way that I would create a new LibreOffice document, is to start LibreOffice from the main menu.

    Indeed! ... however, right clicking the desktop and choosing "Create New" Libre Document would be a lot quicker and more easily acessible ... the menu is there! .. by right clicking one can create new "Text File, HTML File" ... how does one create new spreadsheet (for example) in a similar manner

    Creating a new document file is a lot more complicated then a new text or html file. It requires the loading of the actual word processor. For text/html style files you just need an empty file handle. FOR WP you need a complex data structure even for an empty document.

    Why would that be different? Or more complicated? In all cases it's no more than opening an application with an empty file/doc. In the olden days we could add service menus, why not now?

    The closest I've seen is a package called 'dolphin-libreoffice-templates' which consists of .desktop files and some blank LO files (including Text.odt), that provides a contextual menu to create LibreOffice documents from Dolphin. It's not provided (currently) as an official openSUSE package, but it's only a noarch package with the aforementioned files, so should install OK. (It's safe to ignore the warnings presented.)

    https://software.opensuse.org/packag...fice-templates

    In an effort to assist, I installed it and after logging out and back in, I now have the contextual menu in Dolphin that includes options to create various LO documents. Hope that helps.

    That's what I meant, couldn't find it though.
