I've just installed Star Office 5.2 from my old(er) SuSe Linux 7.3 CDs
It is in /root/office52. It starts with a script soffice.
Can anyone tell me how to make it available to all users on my home computer?
When I click on the directory /root/office52 right click then properties, under local net sharing it says error running filesharelist check if installed or in $PATH or /usr/sbin.
I wanted Star Office because i know it can read my Excel files, which Open Office can't.
I changed the group to users, but that didn't help.
Well, I just started up the computer, with my Win CD in the CDRW drive, and lo and behold, open office read it.
Every other time I tried it failed to recognize the files.
Linux rules! It's just quantum!
