Thanxs.

I thought that some general purpose ZIP spotlight plugin would exist and that I only may need to map sxw to zip etc. No success.

But then ..., I discovered NeoLight. Built right for NeoOffice. It worked for me out of the box (I installed prior to modifying Info.plist since I did not expect those add. steps. - it still worked fine).

Great work, thanxs. Very Happy

The following appeared to be necessary for me:

I added this to wiki.

Hmm...the installer should be placing the plugin in the /Library/Spotlight directory now. This should expose the plugin for all user accounts on the machine. I just got Tiger retail installed myself so can do some investigation now. The initial installer was futzed up because the install locations changed between the prerelease version I was developing on and 10.4 final.

Hi, this wasn't the problem. The directory used is /Library/Spotlight indeed. However, I got this garbage output like "dyn.a3f42morehexgarbageinherefoo" from the -d3 option until I ran this command for each individual user. Without this step, Spotlight did not find the matches.

Aha...OK, sorry, I read the wrong part of the page then. I was under the impression that the LaunchServices rebuild would force LS to nix the databse for each user with the "-domain user" flag. Perhaps this is something to do with permissions?

We may need to add in an "sudo" to the command. When I was running it I was always in a "sudo csh" spawned shell. I unfortunatley don't have anything but test multiuser installations as I'm single so can miss these crucial points easily Wink

The plug-in works perfectly. As an aside, I note that NeoLight works slightly differently (better). If I save a document in .doc format (with N/J) the MS Spotlight plug-in fails to pick up the "Subject" information of that document while NeoLight picks it up in .sxw format.[/list]

IIRC, the .doc plugin actually comes from Apple, not MS, so you may want to pass along that info in the apple bugreporter Wink

Interestingly, Apple also ships a Pages importer by default with each 10.4 install. I wonder what it would take to get them to include third-party Spotlight plugins to make the OS a bit more "multilingual" with respect to non-Apple/MS document formats out of the box.

Hi,

I am happy with NeoLight.
Now, that it is included in NeoOffice RC4, how do/should I deinstall it prior to installation of RC4?

To uninstall the older one, just drag the /Library/Spotlight/neolight.mdimporter bundle to the Trash. The next time that you launch Neo/J LaunchServices should re-index things and point to the plugin living in the application bundle as opposed to the /Library/Spotlight directory.
