right button > create new office document


When using KDE, i was able to click right mouse button, and had the option to create new office document, like libreoffice writter. Very convinience.

Where is that option in Gnome?

Kind regards

You’ll probably have to describe <exactly> how you’re expecting to create a document, on the Desktop, in a file manager, etc.

And, it’s possible to setup your Desktop various ways.
Have you tried left-clicking in an empty space? (Again, depend where you’re clicking)


I think you will find it is KDE specific and all it does is create an empty document. I find it quicker to open a word-processor and start typing in the default document.

i do not know about Gnome3
gnome2 and nautilus had a TON of really COOL r-click actions

weather they were ported to gnopme3 ???

look for “nautilus” and “actions”

su -
zypper se nautilus
----- and ----
zypper se actions

zypper in nautilus-actions  

I’m not a Gnome user, but I do have the nautilus file manager installed. Anyway, I’ve seen one approach that seems to work, which involves creating an empty file in ~/Templates directory.


For example, open LO and save as the preferred file type and default name eg Untitled.odt to the ~/Templates directory

Then open nautilus, and now it should be possible to right-click > New Document > select the file type of interest. It will create the file requested with the option to rename it. (As a quick test, I created 2 files - new.txt and new.odt)
