LibreOffice's 'Export Directly as PDF' remains undetected by Zeitgeist

Bug #934542 reported by Thibaut Brandscheid on 2012-02-17

zeitgeist-datahub (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release: 12.04 64-Bit Unity 2D up-to-date

zeitgeist 0.8.99~alpha3-1
libreoffice 1:3.5.0~beta2-2ubuntu4

What you expected to happen:
When exporting a file as pdf in LibreOffice Zeitgeist should add the newly created file to the Zeitgeist index.

What happened instead:
No file was indexed - File Lens had no new entry.

LibreOffice's 'Export Directly as PDF' is a frequently used function. Now that Firefox downloads get indexed it would be nice if Zeitgeist could index PDFs created by LibreOffice too.

Libreoffice needs proper dataprovider support. As well as 'export pdf' (which would make my life much easier), operations like 'Insert->Picture->From File' should be logged as well.

I tried my best,but still could not find any way how LibreOffice PDF Export can be hooked into to log the save.

An Ubuntu only solution could maybe be the new Upstart file bridge - just an idea.

This release provides a new bridge, the upstart-file-bridge(8) that allows jobs to react to filesystem changes. For example, to have a job start when a particular file is created:
start on file FILE=/var/app/*.foo EVENT=delete
