Alright, at this point I am about to re-install my laptop from scratch, so this is a last straw, hoping someone can help me fix this…
When you upload a document in MS Office format (or Open Document Format, for that matter) in Google Drive and you right-click the file in Drive, you can choose to open the document in Google Docs, Sheets or Slides respectively. This works as expected on my Manjaro desktop.
However, when I upload a file from my Manjaro laptop to Google Drive, it insists that there are “No available apps” for opening that file when I right-click it.
So uploading the file works fine and after downloading it, I can open and use it with LibreOffice or WPS Office as usual, no problem either. It’s just that when uploading from my laptop, I can no longer open that file in the Google Suite office apps.
I have uploaded the same file with different browsers: Google Chrome, Chromium, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Falkon. I have uploaded the file through Google Drive File Stream. Same problem persists on my laptop. Works fine on my desktop. And it used to work on my laptop too, but not anymore…
So something is borked on my laptop, but this is so insane that I have no idea where to start looking. And searching for a solution on the web has proven fruitless. So… anyone?
