Description of problem:
Since updating to the latest openoffice package for FC3, openoffice fails to
start with a 'new document' on startup.  No matter which openoffice.org menu
item I launch with, I'm greeted with an empty window!  I can then do
file->new->??? and everything is fine.

Same here.  I'm glad to have the printers back, however.

Include the component you wish to use in the command line. For example:

ooffice -writer

That seems to work for me. This is the way the official OpenOffice.org builds
work - if you just launch "soffice" it appears blank.

To fix this edit /usr/bin/ooffice changing line 39 to read:
my $BinSuffix = '';
