Exclamation Open Office 3 REFUSES to open this morning

I am running Fedora 10 And open office 3.
(I have never installed a previous version of either.)

Both have been running fine up until this morning.

In a bizzarre windows-esq manner Open Office 3 refuses to open this morning.

Nothing Happens. No matter what I click.
It simply ignors me.

I did download a buch up auto updates last night, but none seemed related to OO3

Any suggestions??

This is so incredibly frustrating.

Question is OpenOffice refusing to work today!?

Hi!!
I dunno about your OpenOffice, but maybe it feels sad today, it may have a bad mood...and because of that it refuses to work today... i would avoid to annoy OO3 and try again tomorrow!!!

jk

So, well, if you cant wait , try by opening a terminal and type:
$ openoffice.org
look if there are any error message.

bye!!!!!

Did you hurt its feelings? Maybe it overheard you saying Office was better?

In any case, try logging out then back in, or better yet just reboot.

I downloaded the Windows version, and put it on an XP machine, works fine.

So I have to give up in Linux, and drink the Microsoft Kool Aide?
Is that the only answer?

Wrong tack to take!!!

I dont give a rat's you know what what OS you use!!!

Do you want to give up? Do you rely on everyone always spoon feeding you? Can you not help yourself? Then maybe you should go back to Windows!

I use Mint, not Fedora, so I do not know what is going on here. My OO.o works fine. Is it a Fedora problem? Caused by the latest update? I do not know. Did a reboot not work? What does top show? Worse comes to worse just uninstall OO.o then reinstall.

Or just reinstall Windows.

Yes I think it's a problem related to the Fedora 10, updates I installed last night.

Could someone PLEASE tell me how to uninstall OO3, I think I can figure out how to install it again, but I have no idea how to uninstall something.

I'm in tears here, I'm trying to run a business, and I am forced to go to Windows in order to get work done this morning.

Ah!!
john_tartar, have you installed OpenOffice by downloading the installer from their website?
You could just remove it and install openoffice with yum!!

bye!!!

Top is a command you can type into a terminal to show running processes. But if you did reboot then I dont think top would relate anything useful. It is a strange problem and one I would say is just yours had igla not also posted.

If it were me then my next step would be to uninstall and then reinstall via yumex. (yumex is another graphical frontend for yum that gives you more control. Open a terminal, su to root then type "yum install yumex" without the quotes.) Maybe a dependency got screwed up during the update? Short of that working then I would try to install the latest OO.o from their site. I am not sure if they have Fedora binaries and compiling might be beyond you at this point, it is a bit tricky.

I do not know what else to tell you, maybe someone will come along that knows the answer. Stick with it, this is an unusual, screwy problem. Work out these minor hassles and Fedora will prove to be a good friend for you.

John, how did you install OO.o to begin with, or was it installed by default? My honeybee may be on to something.

Install yumex so you can see what you are doing. I am not sure as I have not used it in 6 months, but over in the left pane there is a category for groups. Find the open office group and work from there.

Well, john_tartar. At first you need to uninstall OpenOffice . So you need remove it, but i don't know how you can do it.... maybe there are some "uninstaller" inside /opt/openoffice.org3/ ...

Anyway, once done, you need to install OO3 in this way:
Code:
[Doug@dougs ~]$ su -l
[root@dougs ~]# yum install openoffice.org-base-core openoffice.org-writer openoffice.org-brand openoffice.org-pdfimport openoffice.org-calc-core openoffice.org-graphicfilter openoffice.org-writer-core openoffice.org-base openoffice.org-impress openoffice.org-ure openoffice.org-math-core openoffice.org-langpack-en openoffice.org-presenter-screen openoffice.org-draw-core openoffice.org-calc openoffice.org-math openoffice.org-impress-core openoffice.org-draw openoffice.org-xsltfilter openoffice.org-core
(don't rewrite it all, just copy/paste and press enter )

bye!!!
