Just wondering if anyone has installed the Mozilla plugin from Experimental? If so how does it work? Mozplugger opens OO doc in Firefox already so what does it do?
"This package contains a Mozilla/Netscape compatible plugin which can handle
all OOo documents."

I have OO1.9 installed from 2.0beta
deb ./ and it works/looks great.

Why all the bugs in the official Debian version?

My Mozilla Suite in RH9 did not open OO documents online. Presumably this plugin would have helped me. Perhaps the plugin predates Firefox 1.0?

Perhaps there are bugs in the official debian version of OO because the distro developers provided a buggy version? Surely this is a question for the distro developers? But it may be that it is just your setup? Whatever - installing another version fixed the problem. I suspect that the next release will also be fixed.
