openoffice /tmp file error


Trying to get Open Office Portable to run on a Debian OpenBox.

Code:
guest@openbox:~$ openoffice
/tmp/.mount_DV9XKo/AppRun: line 4: /tmp/.mount_DV9XKo/program/soffice: No such file or directory
guest@openbox:~$

How do I get past this little hangup ?

THX

Patrick

you do know that is a Microsoft Windows program
it is for a different operating system

download the Debian ( .deb) version of 4.1

Actually, it is a Linux portable program from

http://portablelinuxapps.org

I use several of them without problem.

thanks for the response,

Do you have enough free space on /tmp? You could also get the .tar.bz2 package from libreoffice.org and unpack it somewhere and run it from there.
