i have installed star office by logging in as root. now what shall be done for all users( there are about 40 users) to access the program without cding into the root directory?
any body, plz help. i am using knoppix
thanks in anticipation
other users can run star office only after cd ing into the root directory. it is the directory of root in home area like other user directories.the permissions allow to do that. or, link can be made in the desktop. The problem is, is it possible to make a symlink or so for all users at one go?
You need to do a network installation for everyone to be able to run staroffice without having to get into the root directory. Install it in /opt or /usr/local. The instructions are on the openoffice.org website.
