OpenOffice Writer


Have installed OpenOffice 1.1.1
I would like to have Menu, and Start Icon for Writer. 1.1.1
Click K start menu to Office > wordprocssors> oowriter = 1.0 version installed from Cd
Have created submenu in Office to start OpenOffice but as yet found no way to have a full menu in
Office. Easy to boot up Office then open new text file,that's no problem
Just wonder if it is possible to boot direct to Word.

Hi,

I'm not quite sure what you are asking for, but if your problem is, that your menu-link points to an older version, I suggest you edit the link to point to the new version and simply delete the older one (if you don't need it anymore - to save disk-space).

Peace!

OpenOffice Writer

Hi Carstenbjensen
Thanks for information regarding menu for writer
I have not deleted the old edition of OpenOffice 1.1.0 untill sure that 1.1.1 menu starts up.
Not sure how to link the menu to have OpenOffice have all the menu items displayed and just have
and have icon on task bar to start Writer only and not all of OpenOffice as at present.

Where did the installation put oowriter (version 1.1.1).
My menu-entry for OpenOffice Writer has the command as simply:
oowriter

From the console, type 'which oowriter'
If it's the version you want, then replace the command line in menudrake.

>>Not sure ... and have icon on task bar to start Writer only
Open up KMenu. Go to Office -> Wordprocessors -> OpenOffice.org Writer

Drag the menu icon, and drop it into a blank space on your task bar.
