got my mother over to Linux (Ubuntu Dapper methinks, all up to date) and it's going well, but doing a bit of DTP in Open Office 2.0.2 draw has problems.
Good program and all, and can create some good stuff, but occasionally the documents mess up.
What I mean by mess up is:
OO crashes, tells you its crashed, and asks you if you want to restart it.
You restart it, it nicely tells you which documents you were working on, and asks you to recover them.
You recover the document, it loads, then crashes. or
You don't recover the document, then next time you go into it, it then crashes.
I realy don't know what is causing this and am floundering as to where to start.
I've thought about images being the cause, some WMFs are on the most recent one to die, but I think previous ones only have one PNG and variations.
I think I recall a similar problem with Impress on Gentoo a while back.
I made 4 slides, then it had the problem, I hacked into the file and removed 3 of them, and it worked, added another, it worked, added another, and it died. And through much tinkering, couldn't find a specific page that would crash it, just too many would do it (too many = 3/4!!!) So I gave up and worked on my laptop with Open Office 1, at least it worked!
If anyone has any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated.
