Thread: Problem - Openoffice file menu activates itself!

    Default Problem - Openoffice file menu activates itself!

    Hi all,

    I am using OpenSuse 11 with KDE 3.5.9 and Openoffice 2.4.0 on a HP Compaq dc5750 microtower.

    When I type characters in either write or calc, after a short while (seconds), the focus switches to the filemenu. This is driving me nuts as I have to click on the document every time to switch the focus back.

    Thought this might be a keyboard problem, but tried different models (I have a HP KB-0316) with no luck.

    Any help welcome.

    Hi there,

    No Compiz effects, not even KDE menu effects.

    Hi all,

    Just a little extra info:

    I have used this hardware with Opensuse 10.2 and 10.3 and no issues with Openoffice in those releases.

    Thanks.

    I think your best bet would be to download the iso again and burn another copy ( you could also burn another copy of the iso you did download and try again. Make sure you burn at a slower speed. I think the dvd is funky in the burn, and it is bad, and by a fluke of bad bits it still checks out ok. it is an unlikely occurence, but not impossible.

    Many thanks for all the comments so far. I have a screenshot, but it doesn't look very informative. It just shows a spreadsheet with the file menu open. A silly question: how do I upload the screenshot?

    With regards to downloading the iso again, I may do that if everything else fails. It would explain why nobody else has this problem, considering how annoying it is.

    I shall investigate further. In the meantime any further comments are welcome.

    I can't understand that comment.

    Upload file to a file server like ImageShack® - Image Hosting
    you need to setup an account - it's free

    [QUOTE=caf4926;1866851]I can't understand that comment.

    I think he means for me to download the Opensuse installation dvd again.

    I have uploaded the screenshot with some comments:


    Incidently the problem also occurs in Openoffice draw.

    There is no need to download the suse dvd again. This issue is nothing to do with the install dvd.

    There was a thread here:Open Office Writer Causes KDE Display to Malfunction - openSUSE Forums
    but not the same problem I think

    I would try deleting OO. And the hidden .ooo2 folder in /home/user/.

    There is always koffice too
