OpenOffice 2.3 in SuSE 10.2 has no options for any document types.


So I just upgraded from openoffice 2.2 to 2.3 today and when I start open office, the only kind of document it will let me open up is for a formula. This happened before, but I just assumed that it was because it was still in beta, but now that it is released I get the same problems. Also in the apps menu, there is no openoffice writer or calc or anything like that. The package it downloaded was quite large. Any ideas of what is going on?
Thanks in advance.

I believe you have to download the specific app. ie calc, writer, base etc. Check in YAST. I don't know why? Also might want to add filters and mail merge.

I put OO 2.3 on Slack 12 yesterday and everything worked perfect. Must be a dependency problem with Suse.

Might be a dependency problem with SuSE 10.2. I have dl SuSE 10.3RC1 and OO is a part of the package. It works without any problem.

I did the same until I realised that it is not a few big RPMs. The main rpm is just the basic package and there are separate RPMs for the different components writer, calc etc.

Once you download and install these it works fine and much quicker than the previous version I thgought.

Thanks for the help. That is probably it. The RPM that smart downloaded was quite big, but when I checked, I couldn't find calc or writer or base or any of that. I will check in the repo that you guys listed.

Yeah, I had that repo, I was just blind and didn't look very hard, I guess I was just to downloading one RPM that I didn't really think to look for the individual packages.

I had the same issue. Either OpenOffice changed their organization, and Smart Package Manager wasn't smart enough to figure it out, or something else was wrong. I did not have this issue updating to 2.0 when it came out. This time, I had to look for the seperate OpenOffice rpms.
