I've been using OpenOffice.org 1.0 as supplied with Mandrake 9.0 ever since I installed the OS - quite happily, it's very similar in operation to StarOffice which I used under win so no problems there.
Still dual booting for a couple things. So...
One day last week I rebooted into Mandy and it restored my previous KDE session as usual. I had not been using OOo on the previous occasion, but this time to my surprise OOo tried to open.
'Tried' - because it didn't, it hung at the welcome screen. And the welcome screen sits 'in front' of any other window one opens, rendering the desktop unusable.
And it's sticky - present on all 4 desktops...
For a couple reasons - I don't remember altering any settings (no - make that, I DIDN'T alter any settings!), and I'm a newbie
the only solution I have is to reboot (the app actually opens on about one in three attempts, then I can close it down) I have no idea where to go next in looking for a solution. Nothing in the OOo documentation or on a quick search of this or other help sites, even googling, seems to be of much help at all.
Any tips would be appreciated.
