Hi,i'm developing an application to detect OOo applications used by 650 PCs, but i'm having problems to detect exactly what OOs application is running (calc, writer, impress...) because in linux everyting is listed under one process (eg: /usr/lib/openoffice/program/ooffice.bin -calc)

if i first open calc and later writer (and so on) y only detect the first opened, not the rest

i appreciate any help.

Best Regards.

Good luck. Smile OpenOffice.org is definitely not like Microsoft Office. I think OOo is technically one application with many components. If you really want to know, there are ways to find out, but it depends how much effort you are willing to make.

Also, what about cases where (for example) a Calc document is embedded in a Writer document and visa versa?

One option may be to hack the OpenOffice.org source code to spit this information out to temporary files.

I don't know. OpenOffice.org is a big project. For some people already familiar wit it, I'm guessing it would be relatively easy. You could offer a bounty to dev@openoffice.org or post a project on a site like rentacoder.com

Just guessing, really. Would it suit your purposes to detect what type of OpenOffice documents are open? Someone on the Macros & API forum should be able to help with that.

maybe this could work, i've tried to detect opened files (linus lsof command) and it works only when the user is working on a saved file, if the user opens a new blank document (or with a template), works on it, but never saves, then i cannot detect it.
