Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 147893
openoffice doesnt create a new document on startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:00 EST
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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to the above version
2. Launch oowriter, or one of the other links
Empty window (see attachment)
A blank writer document
Created attachment 111021 [details]
Empty window when launching Openoffice
Same here. I'm glad to have the printers back, however.
Include the component you wish to use in the command line. For example:
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 = '';
