openoffice files location


im pretty new at this, so please excuse my ignorance
RedHat 9.0
in kde or gnome, accessing openoffice apps is easy,
i just choose them in the menu, but i really like
Afterstep(it runs much faster on my underpowered machine).
Ive pretty much got afterstep configured the way i like it
but i cant find the binaries for the openoffice apps so I can
add them to my custom menu.
ive looked in /usr/bin, usr/share/bin, etc etc etc
i dont even know the names of the files to use find or locate.
the docs on openoffice are great if you need to know how to
create docs, add graphics, etc....but dont tell you where the
files are.
thanks

I don't have openoffice installed on my distros, so I don't know the names, but log in to gnome, or kde. go to the application that you are looking for, right click it, select properties and one of the tabs should tell you where it's located.

OOo Calc:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/scalc"

OOo Draw:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/sdraw"

OOo Printer Administration:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/spadmin"

OOo Impress:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/simpress"

OOo Math:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/smath"

OOo Writer:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/swriter"

OOo Writer/Web:
"/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/sweb"
