Registration won't go away in OO.o


Ok. This evening I installed OO.o from the tar ball on the website and following their instructions. It works just fine. But everytime I open it up it asks me to register. I have selected all the options. Still pops up everytime. I have looked in every damn file in the directory, nothing. I ran find on the CLI 3 different ways (register, registration, reg*), nothing. I am not sure how to turn it off/disable. Nothing from google or askjeeves. Nothing on the OO.o website. Anyone know the script that runs that piece of the program and how to disable it.

Abit about my box, running Slack curret with 2.6.7 kernel, DLG. If that helps.

Thanks in advance.

I've had this problem heaps - it's to do with Java...
What I've always done is instead of running ./setup in the untarred OO.o directory is run ./install - From what I know this doesn't install Java but fixes the registration problem :-)

Another way is to just register once and that annoying
window will go away. While registering, you don't
need to fill out the blanks, just use alot of spaces, zeros,
or dots.

try re-reading. I have tried all the options. And registered 4 times.

I think the Java thing might be on track. It's been a weird day. Power outages. anyhow. I am giving the install another go.
