Thumbnail plugin for KDE desktop integration
While OpenOffice.org has internal support in the Windows desktop integration for the system file browser, providing thumb previews of OpenOffice.org files (see source code), such a feature is completely missing in its KDE integration.
The idea here is to develop a plug-in for KDE file managers (Dolphin and Konqueror) to preview OpenOffice.org files (Open Document Format) as thumbnails. Although this could be integrated into OpenOffice.org source code, I find it better to distribute the plug-in as a KDE extension, because it is developed using only the KDE API, and so it does not need OpenOffice.org to be installed for it to work.
- the plug-in only works for Open Document Format files (the default file format since OpenOffice.org 2), not the old binary file format
