In my 1.1x installation swriter was not automatically included in my path. To deal with this I either had to start with with full path (/opt/openoffice.org1.12/program/swriter) or to create a symbolic link to it in /usr/bin.

Just tried this for fun. Here are the results:

vijay@box:~$ swriter
-bash: swriter: command not found
vijay@box:~$ /opt/openoffice.org1.12/program/swriter
-bash: /opt/openoffice.org1.12/program/swriter: No such file or directory
vijay@box:~$ root
-bash: root: command not found
vijay@box:~$ sudo
usage: sudo -V | -h | -L | -l | -v | -k | -K | [-H] [-P] [-S] [-b] [-p prompt]
[-u username/#uid] -s | <command>
vijay@box:~$ su
Password:
root@box:/home/vijay# /opt/openoffice.org1.12/program/swriter
bash: /opt/openoffice.org1.12/program/swriter: No such file or directory
root@box:/home/vijay# exit

There is no correct command - it depends on whwre you get OO - from your distro or from the OO folks, and how they symlinked the binary.

I forgot a point in version number. According to my (former) installation it should have been /opt/openoffice.org1.1.2/program/swriter
