http://ubuntuforums.org – For the record, I am runninge the following versions: Ubuntu 13.04, Evolution 3.6.4, Thunderbird 17.0.7, LibreOffice 4.0.2.2 Opening attachments under Ubuntu is different from how other OSs are handling this. You can open an excel spreadsheet from Outlook, webmail, Mac Mail, etc and never experience the read only problem that you face when opening a "office"-attachment in Ubuntu. The combination Ubuntu / LibreOffice seems to decide that all attachments shall be opened read only and for a user that is used to be able to directly work in documents, presentations, spreadsheets, etc, (Hardware)
