I have a few files that have fields of properties and personal information that I want to remove, the format is .odt. Basically, I want to strip out everything. What utilities are available for the job on Linux?

  • .odt is compressed set of files, so you can unzip it and edit .xml files, it's not convenient, but it's a possibility. Most info in file meta.xml and content.xml. – week Nov 9 '12 at 12:33
  • You may delete it manually for every file with libreoffice. – FSMaxB Nov 11 '12 at 14:29
  • @FSMaxB could you explain, how? – n611x007 May 16 '13 at 3:55

    @naxa I'm using a german localisation, so I don't know how it's actually called, but if you go to something like "File" -> "Properties" you can edit the metadata. – FSMaxB May 16 '13 at 5:07
