I've installed openoffice from slackbuild but it doesn't run. It shows the register frame and doesn't run openoffice. Any ideas?

Why no LibreOffice AlienBob has put together a nice package here is the link for Slackware 14

Here is the link for Slackware 13.37

Download the packages, then navigate to the directory in which you have saved the files in your terminal and as root type
# installpkg <downloaded_file_Name>
Good luck to you.
