OpenOffice.org QuickStarter - installed it... how do I launch it?


I've installed OOo QS on Madriva 2005 SE. It seemed to install ok but now what? How do I get it to launch?

Thanks in advance

Steve

just type in the command-line: soffice
that's it.
you can also enter a file as parameter, like this:
$ soffce mydocument.doc
it'll open OO with mydocument.doc loaded in it.

does typing "soffice" not just start open office itself. It's the open office quick start app that I am trying to launch?
