Problems starting Openoffice with mdk 9.2


I've recently performed the upgrade from 9.1 to 9.2. I've also installed Openoffice 1.1. Apparently the installation worked well, programs are installed on my PC:

$ rpm -qa | grep OpenOffice

(I have to say that I choose to "localize" my system as "italian")

Now the problem is that if I try to start for example "oowriter" as a normal user, I obtain:

$ oowriter
wrong language for update (installed language doesn't match installation language)
ExitCode: 32
Installation of 1.1.0 failed

..but if I try to start oowriter as root, all goes well. I do not understand the problem, since I also have the italian package installed...

Thanks in advance for any help.

You may want to post this problem to the oowriter forum on the website. I would assume that the OOo programmers would be monitoring that forum.

Thanks...! I was not aware of the existence of an "official" Openoffice forum. I've just submitted my question there.
