OOo 3.1.1 from www.openoffice.org
, 64-bit, installed on Fedora 11, x86_64.
It was working right after I installed it. Now it suddenly won't launch. From the command line I get:
[jjj@Devil8 ~]$ openoffice.org3 -writer %U <- copied and pasted from the launch menu properties
/opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libuno_sal.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I installed it using the "Linux RPM-based Installation" instructions at http://download.openoffice.org/common/instructions.html
, including the desktop integration RPM.
None of the programs in OOo will launch - Writer, Calc, Impress, etc. All the rest of my installed applications launch just fine.
I found a thread here:
Which says I need to install openoffice.org-ure-1.5.1-9420.x86_64. I tried to install it with package manager, but got this error:
Can't install <path>openoffice.org-ure-1.5.1-9420.x86_64.rpm as no transaction
OK, maybe the package never got installed when I did it the first time and I missed the error message. Yet it launched after installation. I know it launched because the whole purpose of installing the OOo version of 3.1.1 was to get AutoCorrect working, which Fedora deleted
in their version of the no-go OOo.
Furthermore, in spite of the error message, looking in Yumex I note that openoffice.org-ure is installed, and it has an icon next to it saying it was not installed from the Fedora repositories.
Also, I installed the packages from the command line as root, rather than use the setup script in the download file. I did so because the instructions at the OOo website said doing so would install OOo globally for all users, not just for me.
I found a lot of other reports where OOo on Fedora launches after installing one time, and then never more. This appears to be what is happening to me. But all the other reports go back as far as FC8. None address OOo 3.1.1, which has a different folder structure.
I think the problem is a broken link, but I don't know what the link is or how to fix it.
I sure hope someone has a solution. I have a paper to write and no word processor!
