First, what is the relevance of the screenshot you posted??

How did you install OpenOffice? If you used the Fedora package manager, it should now be in the menus. (Sometimes you have to log out and in again to refresh the menus.)

If nothing else works, do this:
find /usr -name swriter
If nothing is found, then use "/" instead of "/usr"---this will search the entire file system.

Once you know the full path to the commands, you can intall a launcher in your panel

yes, I restarted FC5 and I found the menus, but they are not working at all.
after clicking the ICON (such as the Writer) nothing happened.
and so i wanna reinstall swriter, but errors happened like:

Quote:
[('file /usr/bin/openoffice.org-2.0 from install of openoffice.org-core-2.0.2-5.2.2 conflicts with file from package openoffice.org-redhat-menus-2.0.4-2',

(7, '/usr/share/mimelnk/application/openoffice.org-2.0-oasis-drawing.desktop', 0L))]
and What i think the old OOo version caused this problem, but i dont know how to remove the 2.0.2 version completely. if i delete the 2.0.2 version, i think then new one can work, probably.
SO how should I do?

Thanks very much in adv. any help would be appreciated

Did you install the rpm set from the openoffice.org site?

From your package manager (Yum?), remove ALL OpenOffice rpm's new and old. Then reinstall the latest version.

Only if this does not work, try doing
Code:
rpm --erase packagename.rpm
If it is just a single rpm for all OpenOffice.org
Code:
rpm --erase --nodeps packagename.rpm
Do this for both OpenOffice.org packages or package sets, oldest first, then reinstall the latest.
