Installed OpenOffice..no menu items.


I installed open office 2.0 (I've done this before..)...and it didn't put an openoffice section into my kmenu. I'm not sure why...as it has before. How can I get it to do it?

I installed open office RPM's on mandrake 10.2

The menu entries seem to only work if you are running Fedora Core or Suse. I think when they create a final product, they will also make a non rpm installer as well as correct the issue with menus. In the meantime, you can access openoffice.org 2 applications from /opt/openoffice.org-version.
