My openoffice installation has this really strange quirk that is highly annoying. I would really appreciate some help since I haven’t been able to find a solution for it so far, neither on the web nor at the forums, and it is really interrupting my work with ooo.
After using the search function in writer or in calc, or after applying a (standard) filter in calc, my text input stops. That is, the program is no longer responsive to my keyboard (the mouse input, however, still seems to work).
My work environment:
openoffice v 2.3.0
KDE 3.5.7 “release 72.9”
Linux 188.8.131.52-0.1-default i686
Panasonic laptop CF-Y2 “Let’s note” (it’s a Japanese model, equivalent to the “Toughbook light”)
I’ve installed both English and Japanese languages on my system.
