I noticed that AbiWord was the default ODF file reader when I
right-click on a document created with LO. I just upgraded to Ubuntu
12.04.1 64-bit from 10.04.
When I use the package manager to remove AbiWord, it removed things like
the desktop menu listing for LO in Office and some other LO packages.
When I did a reinstall, the desktop menu creation failed due to a
LO-core issue. So I needed to remove all of the LO package files and do
a "fresh install".
Running the same Ubuntu/Unity on a 64-bit ThinkPad I just tried
$ sudo apt-get remove abiword
which did not affect any of my other office suites (currently AOO and
LibO from ppa).
$ sudo apt-get remove abiword
reinstalls the same abiword as before without affecting anything. I can
double-click text documents, I can choose any application from the
context menu of an .odt file.
The only thing that drives me nuts is that Ubuntu refuses to open any
ODF document with the graphical zip tool ("unsupported archive") unless
I change the file name suffix to .zip. This is most idiotic Windows style.
I think it may have been partly the way my system is set up.
I have KDE [full package] installed as well as 12.04's default packages and MATE desktop
environment's packages. It may be that KDE part of the system say that LO 3.5.4 was removed so it
added AdiWord when I did the process using Synaptic Package Manager. I keep forgetting about the
"apt-get remove" command. I do not use the Terminal much, even after using Ubuntu 9.10 for a few
months till 10.04 came out, then 10.04 till Monday.
I do not use the LO ppa, but install LO from the Debian download offered by the LO download site.
10.04 had no problems with opening the ".oxt" extension files in the archive managers. For some
reason that was the default and not opening it up in LO. I have not tried to edit my dictionaries
with 12.04, yet, but will be working on adding more words later as I have time to build the python
scripts to do some data-mining of documents to find any missing words and checking if their
spellings are correct. I have been wanting to do this for months, but not had the time to do the
