strigi-applet wont launch possible issue with oofice

Bug #163240 reported by icorbett on 2007-11-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
strigiapplet (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After some initial problems with OpenOffice I was able to get that working but after finding documentation stating that strigi was the recommended desktop search with kubuntu 7.10 (I had been using beagle previously) I installed strigi-applet and strigi-daemon to try it out. Initially ~/.strigi was created automatically when I tried to run the strigi-applet but has not been accessed or recreated since even after I deleted it. I got an error stating "could not find ~/strigi" (note the lack of a "." in that string) every time I tried to run strigi-applet immediately after it showed the oofice splash screen. On the off chance that this was related I have purged all oofice packages and now get a message with title "Sorry - kfmcleint" and text "KDEInit could not launch 'ooffice'.: Could not find 'ooffice' executable.". I have tried purging and reinstalling both all ooffice packages and all strigi packages with no change, also as mentioned above I have removed ~/.strigi and it has never been recreated. Lastly ~/strigi has never been created by the package and when I try to create it manually it does not clear the first error.

The strigi applet is nonexistant in more recent versions of Kubuntu, and thus will not be seeing further bugfixes or improvements. Thanks for the report all the same, and have a nice day.
