LibreOffice 4 not opening files from smb

Just a note to myself,

It's a temporary fix, or as many call it, a workaround.

There is a bug in LO that you're not able to open files on smb share. The LO just start (may show a splash screen), and closes with no error.

The workaround is simple, as provided by Maxim Monastirsky (comment #15):

Open the .desktop file (such as /usr/share/applications/libreoffice4.1-writer.desktop for LO Writer) and comment the following line:
For Nautilus users:
X-GIO-NoFuse=true

For Dolphin users:
Open the same file, and comment the following line:
X-KDE-Protocols=file,http,smb,ftp,webdav

It's working now like a charm.
