StarOffice 7 problem in Mandrake 10.0

Fresh installation of Mandrake Official 10.0 and StarOffice 7. Adabas and Product Update 3 are also installed. Java refused to install itself, saying that there was no console. Sub-directories in which installed:


Twice I have changed settings in Tools -> Options including page size (Letter to A4), language (US English to UK English) and several others. OK and exit program. On restarting, I am again greeted with the invitation to register, although I have earlier said that I am already registered. The changed settings have gone back to their defaults, i.e., Letter, US English, etc.

Once I got this message: StarOffice 7 <2>
Could not create backup copy.

I have made two one-page files and taken print-outs. Each time, on quitting the program I received the messages

Error saving the document file: ///usr/local/staroffice/user/basic/script.xlc/:
General Error.
General input/output error.

followed by the same as above except file dialog.slc/:

I have never had this problem with SO 7 in Windows. The SO 5.2 preferences file, though, used to get corrupted, so after quitting the program I would routinely over-write it with a good copy.

[EDIT] Problem solved by Simjii in Distributions -> Mandrake.
