OpenOffice 3 localization problem

Hi,
I’ve updated to OpenOffice 3.0.1 and now I have the following problem
on startup:

“Missing vcl resource. This indicates that files vital to localization
are missing. You might have a corrupt installation.”

Installed packages are:
rpm -qa|grep OpenOffice

OpenOffice_org-icon-themes-3.0.1.2-4.1
OpenOffice_org-pyuno-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-templates-presentation-layouts-3.0-2.1

OpenOffice_org-templates-labels-a4-1.0-5.1
OpenOffice_org-hyphen-20080929-38.1
OpenOffice_org-kde-3.0.1.2-3.2

I’ve even deleted ~/.ooo3 and tried a fresh startup.

Any ideas?

With the help of strace I found that OO is looking for a file called
vclen.res which exists only on the 3.0.0 version.

This file was installed by OpenOffice_org-libs-gui-3.0.0.10-1.6.i586
RPM

I’m attaching the strace output with relevant messages.

Any help on how to solve this?

Hello,

First, I’m not so familiar with OpenSuse 11.1. and Yast2

Background:
All files were almost daily upgraded by
URL: ‘Index of /repositories/OpenOffice.org:/STABLE/openSUSE_11.1’
(http://tinyurl.com/ac8hh4)
resulted in the same error you mentioned.

Solution for me:

  1. With Yast2, I searched “OpenOffice”
  2. In the tab “Versions”: I downgraded all V-files to “x.x.x.x-x.x
    delivered from repo-oss” to the same version delivered by “x.x.x.x-x.x
    from OPENSUSE_11.1”.
  3. After downgrading I did again:
    Package-> All Packages-> Update if newer version is available

At this moment my installed packages are:
rpm -qa|grep OpenOffice
OpenOffice_org-base-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-math-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-LanguageTool-en-0.9.3-1.43
OpenOffice_org-templates-en-3.0-2.1
OpenOffice_org-LanguageTool-0.9.3-1.43
OpenOffice_org-help-nl-3.0.1.2-5.1
OpenOffice_org-templates-presentation-layouts-3.0-2.1
OpenOffice_org-icon-themes-3.0.1.2-4.1
OpenOffice_org-writer-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-impress-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-help-en-US-3.0.1.2-5.1

OpenOffice_org-3.0.1.2-3.2

OpenOffice_org-kde-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-mailmerge-3.0.1.2-3.2
OpenOffice_org-hyphen-20080929-38.1

I hope this will help you

Hi,
thanks for the reply.

I’m downgrading to 3.0.0 from the OSS repository for the moment.

I hope someone can confirm this but I think its some kind of problem
with the packaging of 3.0.1.

I would really like to use 3.0.1 since it corrects some problems I was
having with opening filenames with Latin characters from a network
source…
