Don't know why you didn't get them added to your menus. They should have been.
When I try to
ln /usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/soffice /usr/bin/soffice
and then to run
, I get squawked at. There's gotta be a way to start OpenOffice on the command line without such a long command. Any ideas, please?
Thanks a lot.
