Hi everybody.
First of all, I'm sorry for the lack of informations; i'm going to
explain a bit more.

Yes, Alexander and Andreas, you got it.

On 300 computers, I'd like to fill automatically the informations
contained in LibreOffice "Tools>Options>User Data" (because they are the
one kept up to date).
Computer OS : Windows XP and 7.
LDAP : SUN v6.3
User is logged through his LDAP username and password on a SAMBA server
(installed on a specific Linux distribution called SCRIBE; used a lot in
French education administrations).
Every user and machine is in the same domain.

In the LibO documentation, it's not clear for me wether this file :
"C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.5\share\registry\oo-ldap.xcd"
is used during the install process or anytime afterwards.
I'm currently trying to set it correctly with the system team...but
whatever, I don't know how to use it after it's correctly set !

Alexander, thank you for the informations about French MIMO. I'm
currently corresponding with 2 members of this group but anyhow, I don't
know yet how to subscribe to this mailing list. Any idea ?

Thanks a lot for your help.
I'm going to keep an eye on the list and do my best to give a hand.

Best regards,


Mailing lists do not work for end user support. I use to suggest where you find many competent users for OpenOffice and all its derivatives. There you find tutorials, examples, thousands of answered topics and you can use attachments, screenshots, hyperlinks and text formatting.

Write a program to fetch the user-ID, the LDAP record for the given ID and then manipulate the XML file which stores the user information. On my current Win7 system that is %appdata%\LibreOffice\3\user\registrymodifications.xcu with various user-data nodes.

You may use the office API for this but for most programmers it is much easier to work with ordinary xml parsers, generic ldap access and system interfaces. All database access is configured through so called "database documents". They start as mere configuration files with some preview capabilities. Such a database document can be accessed through the API. The office user settings can be accessed through the API. The user ID needs to be read from somewhere else.
