Open Office Problems - Help!!!


Using 1.0.2 on Red Hat Beta (Pheobe).

1. Everything was working fine until today, as I moved my home directory from an NFS master to my local machine.

2. The problem now is I can only start Open Office as "root" and not as a regular user. Everytime I run oowriter, it just starts some install script and asks me if I want to put stuff in my home directory. What gives and how do I control this behavior?

On my hold home server my home dir was /u/oswald, now on the local machine, it's /export/home/oswald with a link from /u/oswald pointint to that place. I used rsync to get everything over from my NFS home dir to my local, so I'm not sure what got screwed up.

Thanks!

Try "chown"ing the new, local copy
to your user, and check what your home
is in /etc/passwd

Cheers,

So it's not seeing your old config files? Odd. If it's not too much drama, you can just go through the wizard it's giving you, and do a normal workstation (user, in this case) installation. All this does is create a trivially small OpenOffice.org directory in your home directory which contains, amongst other things, your home directory.

But I don't really see why it's not noticing your old config. Are your other programs loading your old configs properly?

Hmm...upon further review in my OpenOffice directory, I see the following in the setup log. I'm getting closer it seems. I'm still not sure what is read-only tho'.
