Description Ian Stakenvicius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-09 16:14:00 UTC
This bug is a reminder from the conversation between myself and scarabeus on #gentoo-office earlier today.

Issue seems to be that the plugin must be 'enabled' in Libreoffice (used to be through an 'options' menu item) to work but there is no longer an option to do so.  

A potential hint to the issue and solution might be:

<scarabeus> :/
<scarabeus> aha
<scarabeus> so file of the plugin is distributed but the xml support files  are not
<scarabeus> fuu

Just one more thing, would you mind paste output of this?:

equery files libreoffice |grep
Comment 2 Ian Stakenvicius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-11 13:10:28 UTC
$ equery f libreoffice |grep -e nsplugin -e libnpsoplugin
$ ls -Fla /usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins/
/usr/lib64/nsbrowser/plugins/ -> /usr/lib64/libreoffice/program/

This is identical output to libreoffice-bin-, btw (the 'enable plugin' option isn't available under Options there, either)
Comment 3 Tomáš Chvátal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-11 13:28:29 UTC
When thinking of it you don't actually need to enable the plugin in the lo, as that option is there to enable it if you don't provide the system symlink.

Which we obviously provide.

So now I have to install firefox and test this thing again. Probably after weekend. :-)

Another bad news, debian disabled the mozilla plugin build as we didn't manage to figure out what the fck is happening :/

Still if you want to hack on this I am willing to provide any support on irc...
Comment 5 Tomáš Chvátal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-26 18:50:22 UTC
Ok nsplugin is again buildable but crashes every time. So there is still not much progress.
Comment 6 Tomáš Chvátal (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-09-15 10:21:20 UTC
Disabled the feature as whole, if somebody is interested they can work on it.
