Description:

A small utility to easily manage OpenOffice.org documents at xml level from outside OpenOffice.org suite.
You can view and edit (with kwrite) the main xml files present in OpenOffice.org documents and update these documents with the changes.
Also you can compare two or three documents (using Kompare or KDiff3 for that)

REQUIREMENTS
- zip and unzip console tools
- some coreutils

INSTALL
Copy *.desktop to your ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus or to /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus/ (as root)
Copy oxml.sh somewhere in your path

NOTE:
If you edit a xml of a document, remember that you must choose UTF-8 encoding in kwrite before save the document.

I installed the menus but they do nothing.

When I run from command line, I get the following:

dg@pieva:~/Dokumentai$ oxml.sh telekomui.odt content
/home/dg/bin/oxml.sh: 5: Syntax error: Bad substitution

Is there a syntax error in oxml.sh?

Moreover I had to add "application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text" to ServiceTypes= string in the .desktop file to get it to recognize not just the old OpenOffice format but the real Oasis Open Document text format (other OD types have to be added as well). It may be peculiar to Ubuntu, but I doubt it.

I found that if I run it not as an sh shell script, but as a bash script, the error does not happen. So, the script must be a bash script actually, and you need to correct the shebang reference at the start of the script.

Here are also the needed mime types for Kubuntu Edgy to add to *.desktop file:

application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.presentation,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.presentation-template,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet-template,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text-template

add them at the line ServiceTypes=

I have also added other open document mime types, but am not sure if it is needed for anyone, or - if it works:

application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.chart,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.formula,application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.image

Good luck!
