I had a problem installing the latest version of
OpenOffice (641c). I use Window Maker as my window
manager and for some reason OpenOffice would not
install. Don't ask me why but I tried to install it
under Gnome and hey presto it worked.
That was good but I am not a fan of Microsoft desktop
look-a-likes so I recompiled Window Maker using a deb
source package making sure Gnome support was compiled
in. Hey presto OpenOffice started working under
Window Maker. I can only assume Sun has started
intergrating StarOffice into Gnome like they said they
would when the Gnome Club, or whatever it is called,
Anyways, hope this helps.
