SOLVED Open Office unable to determine language


Yesterday I installed patches et. al. through Synaptic on my PCLOS sysetm. Synaptic gutted my installation. Most everything was missing. So I used Synaptic to re-install Open Office dot org software. When that was finished I was unable to run OOo from a normal user account. OOo showed the splash screen, then it created a new window which contained a message indicating that OOo could not determine the language of the operator and was quiting. Root was able to run OOo without problems so I knew that all of the OOo files were installed and that this must be a file permission problem.

Long story short these two commands issued as root fixed the problem.
Code:
# find /usr/lib/ooo-2.4 -type d ! -perm /o=rx -exec chmod -c o=rx {} \;

# find /usr/lib/ooo-2.4 -type f ! -perm /o=rx -exec chmod -c o+r {} \;
