My toolbar is gone, I cannot print to a remote printer, and lose my OpenOffice??

Hello, I am new to Linux. I recently installed OpenOffice on my RedHat 7.2 Linux system (using a GNOME desktop environment). It's been installed ok and works for a while, but once I reboot the system, I try to get into OpenOffice and it looks like it is coming up and then just disappears. I have tried repairing/reinstalling but to no avail.

Also, I have trouble printing to a remote printer. I have the correct information in my computer for the remote printer's IP and printer queue name. I still can't print. And also when checking the queue (lpq) on the computer with the attached printer, there are no jobs in waiting. What could be the problem?

And finally, I have suddenly lost my toolbar (all of it!). I don't have the GNOME foot or the icon for the terminal emulator, there's nothing. Is there a command to get it back somehow or a way to do it through the GUI?

Does anyone out there has any solutions to any of my problems? I will appreciate any feedback to this. Thank you.

For the OpenOffice problem, rub it from a terminal, and see what errors it spits out, then post them.
What distro are you using, check if your distro has a printer setup utility and re-install the remote printer. Else get APSfilter and set it up.
Gnome toolbar, i never used gnome, but i saw many similar posts, search the forums and im sure you'll find a solution.
