OpenOffice.org 1.1.0rc3 - registration msg keeps popping up on program start


Every time I start up OpenOffice, I get the message telling me to register as an OpenOffice.org user. I already am a registered user. I selected the "I am already registered" option, and it still comes up each time. I checked the soffice script that starts OpenOffice, and I see nothing that could be causing it. I don't have an ~/.sofficerc file, could this maybe be causing it?

You could try creating an empty .sofficerc file and see if that helps.

Tried that. Didn't work. Anyone else had this problem?

If you don't have any important UI settings, you could try deleting your /home/username/.openoffice directory

Look in your /root directory. The OO config files might have been copied there instead of your home directory.

Good Luck,
Ted.

No, they're not there, either.

Does anyone have a clue as to why I wouldn't have an ~/.openoffice directory?

Sorry, I don't know. Maybe you should try reinstalling it.

Good Luck,
Ted.

It was very annoying ....

I had the same problem - it went away when I removed .sversionrc from my home directory, then re-ran swriter (I'm using openoffice.org 1.1RC4). I actually deleted all of the open office directories in my home directory (~/Open* ~.open*), but I'm not sure I really had to do that. When I re-ran swriter I had to go through the 'workstation' install procedure again, it recreated .sversionrc and ~/OpenOffice.org1.1.0

Well, I am getting the following error upon closing the program, when I run it from the command line. Not sure if this would help.

Code:
Fatal exception: Signal 11

sgrocott, did you add /usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.1.0 to your path to run it, or did you put a symlink to the soffice binary in a directory that is in your path?

I have a symlink called /opt/OpenOffice, which I point to the release of the moment, and PATH includes /opt/OpenOffice/program.

Well, I tried a workstation installation instead of just installing it to /usr/local/ like I had been doing. I installed it to ~/.OpenOffice.org1.1.0 though, just a personal preference thing, didn't want that directory displaying in an ls. I took your lead sgrocott, and created that symlink in /opt/.

Most importantly, I'm no getting that damned registration message all the time. Thank you all for your suggestions.
