Unhappy OpenOffice Crash

Hi Folks,

Ive just upgraded from Mandrake 10.0 to Mandriva 10.2. Before OpenOffice was working perfectly. Now my session crashes every time I try to fire up one of the OpenOffice applications and I get thrown out to the login screen (its OpenOffice 1.1.4 by the way).

Does any one know why this might be happening and what I could do to fix it?

Try checking the changelogs - maybe this is a bug that's been fixed in version 2.0?

robertmenezes have you tried removing and reinstalling yet? If not dont bother at lest not till we hear from somebody. I tried that and now I cant even pick open office to be installed. I am having the same problem as you and its driving me up a wall hate it since now I have to resort back to microcrap office.

No help, but OOo2 works fine here on mandriva 2006 64bit... OOo2 is a bit nicer anyway, i'd try installing that.

If you really can't get it to work, there are always plenty of other office packages, like KOffice, StarOffice, etc.
