How do you normally start it? Icon? Menu selection? What desktop environment?

Try right clicking the menu item or icon, look at properties, and you should see the command listed there.

Not being mean, just trying to show you how to find this out for yourself rather than spoon feed it to you.

Hi masonm,
I am linux opensuse 10.1 kde.
I normally start it by right click the document ( *.doc ) itself then choose 'open with openoffice.org writer', now there is no response.

The OpenOffice apps usually have a name that starts with 'oo', like 'oocalc'. 'oowriter', etc.

Try typing in those to see if open office starts up.

find the directory with the OpenOffice program files: For OOo 2, they will be "swriter", "sdraw", "simpress", etc. There is also "soffice" which will open a window but no blank document.

Restart the computer, open a terminal, go to the directory above, and type "./soffice" Tell us EXACTLY what happens--including any error messages that appear in the terminal window.

I don't understand putting /usr/lib into Windows/F...

The easiest way to fix all this may be to simply re-install OpenOffice.org

from where I re-install OpenOffice.org ?
I downloaded OOo_2.0.3_LinuxIntel.tar.gz from the site OpenOffice.org I tar it to OOC680_m7_native_package-1en_US.9044 then I used
./configure
make
make install
... then nothing happened.
Could you pls tell me How to install it ?
... thanx
