Libre Office problems with NFS

Posted Sunday, December 9th 2012 in Other Tech - Permalink

Libre Office is set to use file locks, which can cause problems if the files being accessed are located on a NFS shared drive. The error says something like “General Input/Output Error”. To fix the error, edit the file soffice where ever Libre Office is installed. In PC-BSD, this location is /usr/pbi/libreoffice-i386/bin if installed from a PBI.

Edit the file and comment out the following lines:

# file locking now enabled by default
SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING=1
export SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING
