Disabling Patch Checking

From NeoWiki

In all versions of NeoOffice, patch-checking is enabled by default to ensure users are notified of new patches with the latest bugfixes. NeoOffice checks for patches on launch about every seven days. If no patch is found, NeoOffice will show a donation message instead.

Because NeoOffice development is funded entirely by donations, all versions of NeoOffice will periodically display a window containing the Donations page.

While we consider patch-check an important method of communication and support for our users, and the donations message an important way of keeping NeoOffice under development, we recognize that in some cases, like managed deployments, displaying the patch notification or donation message can be problematic, so NeoOffice includes a method for disabling these notifications.

Disabling only Patch-Checking

Create a file named .nocheckforpatches in the NeoOffice.app/Contents/MacOS/folder.

If you disable patch-checking, we strongly urge you to subscribe to the NeoJUpdate mailing list, closely watch the NeoOffice Release Notes page in this wiki, or use another method to keep aware of the latest patches.

If you disable patch-checking, you should update to the current patch before requesting assistance and/or reporting problems on trinity or filing bug reports in Bugzilla. Your problem may have already be resolved.

Disabling both Patch-Checking and Donation messages

Create a file named .noshowdonationpage in the NeoOffice.app/Contents/MacOS/folder.

If you disable showing of the donations message, we do encourage you to donate to help keep NeoOffice development going.

If you disable patch-checking, we strongly urge you to subscribe to the NeoJUpdate mailing list, closely watch the NeoOffice Release Notes page in this wiki, or use another method to keep aware of the latest patches.

If you disable patch-checking, you should update to the current patch before requesting assistance and/or reporting problems on trinity or filing bug reports in Bugzilla. Your problem may have already be resolved.
