Thread: openoffice stopped working ...

    Default openoffice stopped working ...

    I had been using opensuse 11.0 (64 bit, kde) and openoffice was working fine for me for a while. Then one day it stopped working. I updated to opensuse 11.1, hoping the update would solve my openoffice problem. But it does not. When I issued the command soffice from a Konsole, the splash screen appeared for a few second, then disappeared, no Xterm window was opened by soffice, and no error messages. I tried to do the same thing as another user and as root, same results. I would appreciate your help!!

    I had a similar problem and was advised to rename the .ooo3 - to .ooo3_OLD
    say - and try starting Open Office again. It worked for me but I've
    recently realised I've lost my personal details and had to re-enter them.
    Don't know if that's related.

    Thanks for the response.

    I renamed .ooo3 in my home directory. It still didn't work.

    I deleted openoffice with Yast2, installed the stable version (32 bit) from OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite. That works !!
