Re: [tdf-discuss] description Gnumeric filter

Hi Lera,

Such filter should work always, when you select the file and then choose the correct filter from the drop-down-list in the file open dialog.

But when I do this, I get a General Input/Output Error, both for Window 7 file dialog and for LibreOffice file dialog.

Tested with build Version:
Build ID: c0096b5b8412a8bfd40b84491e6d6eccd6d98504
Locale: de-DE (de_DE)

So the feature seems to be not ready.

Kind regards

It's no secret that we now have the import Gnumeric [1][2]. This is very good
news for all of us, the LO and Gnumeric became a little closer. And in the
Russian community have been waiting for this news for a long time. But I have
a some question.
We (in Russian community) need to describe the operation of the filter. That is
how a person can open the file gnumerik to see anything. To date, the filter
works as follows.

variant №1

1. start LibreOffice
2. select "Open file" on Start Screen
3. Search and select your .gnumeric file
4. push key Open
5. file open in Writer as xml

variant №2

1. open Calc
2. select File->Open
3. Search and select your .gnumeric file
4. push key Open
5. file open in Calc as text import in format xml.

variant №3

1. open Calc or start LO
2. select File->Open
3. select type of file Gnumeric Spredsheet in drop-down list
4. Search and select your .gnumeric file
5. push key Open
6. file not open. will show an error message "total input error output"

Do the filter works at all?
 From the short correspondence with Marcus in dev channel [3] and his actions
in wiki [4], I realized that in his opinion the filter is working properly and
he wants that about filter learned the whole world. Three ways to open a file
will cause a strong reaction at least in the Russian segment of the OpenSource
community and deter people from LO. In addition, our competitors may take
advantage of (and I think certainly will take advantage of) this situation .
So I would like to be prepared for attacks, and to represent what can I say.
Could anybody explain to me how this filter works, please?

thank you in advance


Best regards,
