openoffice 1.4 and Mandriva LE2005

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I have just installed Mandriva LE 2005 and found it excellent, however, I am having a problem with OpenOffice 1.4. I has installed, when installing whole system, and there are Icons for it, and it even load once, but since then it has steadfastly refused to load. When I click the icon or go into menu and click the small icon comes up saying it is loading then suddenly disappears and that is it!!!! The time it did load it took a long time. Can anyone help, please?

Have you tried reinstalling? Maybe something got messed up during the install.

Shit happens

 

p.s. I have no problems with OO-1.4 on my install

I only had problems because of my video card. Required OpenGL to be working before it'd be fine.

 

Check /etc/X11/xorg.conf for the lines:

 

Section "DRI"

Mode 0666

EndSection

 

if not there, you can add them.

 

Also, ensure Mesa is installed too.

Thanks for the replies Augustus and funky monkey, however, I have not had time to try them out yet, due to work. I will let you know how I get on in the next few days.

 

yours very gratefully

Hello,

 

I've got similar problem: after installation of LE 2005 I can't load oowriter as normal user:

 

[mes@dhcppc0 ~]$ oowriter

/usr/lib/openoffice/program/javaldx: libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_3.3' not found(required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)

/usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice.bin: libgcc_s.so.1: version `GCC_3.3' not found (required by /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6)

 

[mes@dhcppc0 ~]$ gcc --version

gcc (GCC) 3.3.4 (Mandrakelinux 10.2 3.3.4-4mdk)

Copyright © 2003 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO

I can load oowriter if i start a session as a root. Also I can load soffice.bin as a normal user.

 

In the directory /usr/lib/openoffice/program/ there is no such library as libgcc_s.so.1 and I tried to copy it from /lib but with no success (empty file is copied).

 

Can anyone help?

I think there is something wrong with your install. The default gcc is version 3.4 on LE2005. How did you install Mandriva: with update or clean install? It's better to do a clean install. :)

At first I updated from 10.1 and had this problem, then I did install and formatted all partitions except /home , but the problem persisted...

Try updating gcc or updating OOo. The default gcc is 3.4 and I have no problems (my OOo is 1.1.4-7). It will probably mean that the larger part of all your software need to be reinstalled but urpmi will take care of that.

Thank you for help. I did a clean install formatting all partitions and OO now works.
