    Yes. Installing the openoffice.org version was easy. It is RPM packaged. Installing JMF is horrible and contains 32 bit libraries. There is an additional mp3 support packaged to be installed with JMF.

I believe that there needs to be a better way of getting a working sound subsystem into opensuse
    Hmm ... I confess I don't find this problem with sound. Yes, power point presentations with audio don't always work well for me, and if you search my handle and pps on this forum, you will see that has always been a thorn in my side as a Linux user, not so much because I want to use that proprietary Microsoft presentation format, but because my mother wants to use it, and I would like to see her use Linux more (because I can support her on Linux, but no one in our family will support her on MS-Windows).

    Of course Microsoft won't write a viewer for Linux for their proprietary presentation format (that supports audio playback). I wonder why they won't ? Why don't they open the standard up for all to use easily ?

    Now because I do see users stumbling over sound in Linux I have tried to write guides to help openSUSE users with: (audio troubleshooting and alsa-update and sound concepts ). Caf4926 has also done the same.

    Unfortunately its at the point now, where sound typically works perfectly (except for powerpoint for me) for me immediately after an openSUSE install, within 5 to 10 minutes (dependant on my download speed for the 3rd party rpms). Hence I no longer encounter the problems that frustrate new users, and since I don't encounter the problems its hard for me to have the necessary visualization needed to adequately help further than what I have already done.

    I don't encounter this "everyone has to spend a lot of time" that you refer to . I consider myself part of 'everyone' and I definitely do NOT have to spend a lot of time. Just the contrary - exception of course is Microsoft's proprietary power point format when it comes to audio.

    Sound has always been flawless for me in openSUSE too.

    That I find Mint producing virtually identical results, leaves me thinking this is not openSUSE sound and or o.o.
    But rather, as @oldcpu implies: A bit of M$ naval lint :-)
