SlackWare 14.0, 32-bit, graphical interface - KDE Desktop 4.8.5.
Dell Inspiron 6000, dedicated to Linux, no MS software
I have a Calligra office suit that came with the SlackWare. It is buggy and crashes often. Hence I installed OpenOffice 4.0 on my laptop. Thanks to 'vid4ken'; he has uploaded an excellent tutorial on how to do it on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lF_MLko6N8I
. The utilities, 'rpm2tgz' and 'installpkg' worked like magic. Whoever wrote them have done an awesome job. Everything works! On the Terminal Emulator
, I can give the command 'swriter &' or 'scalc &' and the corresponding OpenOffice program just pops up, BUT
I do have OpenOffice menu, listing all programs, word, spreadsheet, etc., on my application launcher. When I click on any of those entries, nothing happens. Any ideas as to why this is happening?
