Re: OpenOffice: failure at first start!
I don't know if it is a bit OT, anyway.........
Using the deb packages found in www.linux-debian.de I've just
installed OpenOffice and created the corresponding workstation
installation under my favourite user.
Now, when I FIRST start ./soffice it opens and crashes
immediatedly. Starting it again OpenOffice opens regularly and works
I believe this is a conflict with gnome-session. In earlier versions of
openoffice, they resolved this crashing problem, but I would see a
message printed on the terminal that said something to the effect that
they were disabling something in the gnome-session.
I haven't filed a bug; I assumed they were aware of it. If you are not
running gnome, it may be something else
