Description of problem:
When attempting to start Open office this message appears:
"The application cannot be started.
A connection to the central configuration could not be established."
Re-installation does not fix the problem.
Not only can I not start OOo on FC3, but also the error message is no
help - it gives no indication on how to fix the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start oowriter
Actual Results: See above
Expected Results: Open office writer should run
I have never seen that error message, is there anything unusual at all about
your openoffice.org configuration that you are aware of ? perhaps moving your
.sversionrc and .rhopenoffice1.1 directories to a backup directory elsewhere
might allow you to start OOo
I've just down a yum update. Now the message I get is:
The application cannot be started.
The filter configuration seems to be corrupted. Please reinstall your office.
Which version of OOo are you running, and does this still happen with the latest
1.1.3-11 version that's in FC3 updates?
