Update: I partially found problem reason. Problem appears if: SMB share server side: "read only", and client mount it by default in RW mode. Then client (and libreoffice) think , ok , this is RW SMB source i could put my lock file on it. But server answer back off, this is read only share. Solution is mount these RO shares as RO on client side too. Normal GUI user cannot use this solution due to gvfs will be mount it in RW by default.

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04.5 with all updates and LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 Build ID: 350m1(Build:2) (libreoffice 1:3.5.7-0ubuntu7) from official repository. The problem exists in more modern versions of LibreOffice from PPA (3.6.6-0ubuntu1~precise1~ppa1 , 4.0.4~rc2-0ubuntu1~precise1 , 4.1.6-0ubuntu1~precise1~ppa1 , 4.2.8~rc2-0ubuntu1~precise1 , 4.3.6~rc2-0ubuntu1~precise1 , 4.4.1~rc2-0ubuntu1~precise1). Steps to reproduce: 1. I have shared Public folder (read write, allow guest) from other Ubuntu 12.04.5 laptop using nautilus-share (0.7.3-1ubuntu2), placed test.odt file in it. 2a. I navigate Nautilus on other laptop to smb://laptop/public, clicked 'Open in Terminal here' (or launch terminal and "cd ~/.gvfs/public\ on\ laptop"). Run "libreoffice test.odt" in terminal. 2b. I navigate Nautilus on other laptop to smb://laptop/public, clicked on 'test.odt' file. 2c. I mount share from terminal with sudo mount.cifs //192.168.3.11/public /mnt/smb/ -o uid=`id -u`,gid=`id -g`,guest,sec=none,noperm then libreoffice /mnt/smb/test.odt 3. Got "Document in Use" window with text: Document file 'test.odt' is locked for editing by: Unknown User Open document read-only or open a copy of the document for editing. Open Read-Only Open Copy Cancel 4a. If I click 'Open Read-Only' the document is opened in read-only. 4b. If I click 'Open Copy' the "Untitled 1" document is opened. 4c. Cancel closes this window. Expected results: The "test.odt" files is opened in read-write mode, user can edit it. Actual results: User can't edit original document (see pp. 3-4 above). This functionality is essential. Please fix this bug. Notes: If I try to open document with the command 'libreoffice smb://laptop/public/test.odt' I run into other bug (bug 1214352). If I use Windows as SMB/CIFS server I can open and edit document from share. Problem does not exist with SFTP(SSH)- or NFS- file-servers. My test results are located in Google Docs/Drive Table ( http://goo.gl/jY9Ubj ). Global Samba config (/etc/samba/smb.conf) is default. My useshare config is: cat /var/lib/samba/usershares/public #VERSION 2 path=/home/norbert/Public comment= usershare_acl=S-1-1-0:F guest_ok=y sharename=Public 1. https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=72337 .
