Hmm, I linked mine to /usr/bin/ooffice2 and it works. Here is what I get with "ls -l /usr/bin/ooffice2":
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Mar 23 15:00 /usr/bin/ooffice2 -> /opt/openoffice.org1.9.79/program/soffice.bin
Openoffice2 runs with the command "ooffice2". I also created a menu entry for it in KDE using "ooffice2" as the command.
I don't have the share/icons directory in OpenOffice2, I used the old icons from KDE. You can download a single OpenOffice2 icon here: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=21619
