OpenOffice gnome links... quite typical unresolved question


dear all,

after a nice OO install on my machine everything works fine, except that i think it's quite a pain in the ass to have to browse to the SOFFICE config script to get OO started.

how can someone have an OO link like in suse or any other distro if that matters to point at calc, impress, writer etc directly from the panel?? i just LOVE gnome but i'm getting seriously frustrated in not being able to show the damn links i want in the shortcuts. this should be the FIRST THING of any xserver trying to show some useability (forget about inverting OK and CANCEL, do this FIRST).

ok now that i've thown my frustration at you (sorry about that), anyone has a solution? i found this, anyone has ever used it?

or should we go for GNOME / OpenOffice?

thank you,

aj.

Code:
oocalc     oodraw     ooffice    ooimpress  oomath     oopadmin   oosetup    ooweb      oowriter
These are the links I have. I have manually compiled open office (and I suggest you not to do it yourself )

If these dont work, then create a link in /usr/bin/ of that respective script.

Please reply of I am correct, or I have correctly ujnderstood your question, since I am on KDE.

acidjuice take a look at: /usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.1.2/program (could change in your installation) and there you've, swriter, scalc, sdraw, simpress, sagenda, etc.

i'm on GNOME, and i've used the installer to install OO.

i have now downloaded the OpenOffice Gnome package and will compile it myself. see what happens.

still, question remains unresolved: how to add links to the Applications drop down menu??!

For Gnome 2.8

1) As root cp usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.1.4/share/icons/* /usr/share/pixmaps

2) Open the file manager and put "applications:///" in the location window.
Make a folder/launcher for OpenOffice and use your new openoffice icon. Leave the file manager
open. For Gnome 2.6 click on the Desktop Start Here icon instead of opening a file manager.

3) Open another file manager and browse to /usr/local/OpenOffice.org1.1.4/share/gnome/net
Drag and drop the various launchers to the folder/launcher you made in step 2. Note that there
are 1.14 specific launchers and general OpenOffice launcher. You need one or the other not both.
