OOo Latex configuration

I have just installed OOoLatex (it is a plugin for the openoffice writer that allows you to write Latex)

In the configuration it asks for the location of Latex and Ghostscript binary distributions. Where are those located in my slackware installation? (the path)

Thank you

do you need the path for the binaries? they should be located in /usr/bin but if you need the path for the package you may have a look at the /usr/share/ directory. I can't look this up because I'm running texlive on my Slackware-computer.

Ghostscript: /usr/bin, tetex: /usr/share/texmf/bin.
