Unhappy Problem with openoffice 3.0 beta 2 in mandriva 2008.0


i recently install open office 3.0 beta 2 version (rpm) for my mandriva 2008.0 version. it installs well. but, there is no desktop integration folder in package.
after install i can't open openoffice 3.0, becoz, there is no openoffice.org program entry in menu>Office.
i have openoffice 2.4 installed. i uninstall it & install beta version. but, there is no openoffice program entry!

then, i again install 2.4. thistime, there is a program entry in menu>office.
but, it is openoffice 2.4, not 3.0.

what is the mistake?
how can i start openoffice 3.0 from menu?
is there any solution?

thnx in advance.

Presumably you are using kde.

What happens when you try to start OO from the command line? If that works, all you have to do is to add a menu entry (menu editor, add an item with the same command that worked at the command line).

If it doesn't work, post any error messages.

Actually if it doesn't work and it's a beta, I would first check in the OpenOffice support forums (if it's not something like a missing shortcut) If not, I would notify the devs, so if it is a bug it can be addressed.

In the meantime, you can create a .desktop file in /usr/share/applications. Pretty much just copy OOo2's desktop entries and change the exec line.
