HI,

I've downloaded Openoffice 1.1 from the Openoffice.org website and installed it . I have a new problem that hasn't occurred with previous versions, namely; when I shut it down it reports a General Input/Output Error with the files file:///usr/local/openoffice1.1/user/basic/script.xlc and .../dialog.xlc

The result is that I get asked to register everytime I start the app, and the open-file pick list is never updated.

I can't find anything on the openoffice FAQS or documentation. Any ideas how to cure this? It's damn annoying!

I've checked that these have rw properties for owner/group/everyone (owner is root).

BTW I'm using Linux, (Mandrake 9.1 in case that's relevant)

Can anyone advise how to cure this?

Did you run setup as a user as detailed in the installation instructions?

It looks like OOo is confused as to where user configuration files are located. They should be in your home directory, not in /usr/local.

I think I missed that bit, but I've now "deinstalled" and reinstalled OO. This is what happens:

# Make sure you are root
Done
# Change into this directory: cd OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install.
Done
# Execute the setup script for a "network" installation: "./setup -net"
Done - directory is /usr/local/openoffice1.1 (my 'network' is only one machine)
# Each user on your system should then execute the user-setup for OpenOffice.org.....login as a regular user,...change into the program directory where you installed OpenOffice.org:

so I login as me and change to /usr/local/openoffoce1.1 , and execute the following command:
"./setup"

I get a dialog box saying that Openoffice is already installed at /usr/local/openoffoce1.1, giving only the option to repair this.

Something is not right - but what?

Because you deinstalled and the reinstalled you may have left behind a file in your home directory. Log in as "me" and check the /home/me directory for the HIDDEN file .sversionrc. If you have no other version of OO/SO on your machine you can delete or rename it. If you have other versions then edit it to get rid of the reference to the version you are now trying to install.

Put another way, the setup routine checks the .sversionrc file in"me's" home directory to determine if "me" has already installed his personal "copy" of the current OO version.

Hope this solves your problem because it looks like you did everything else right. The only other thing that comes to mind is a permission problem for "me" in the /usr/local/OO directory but if that was the problem I doubt you could even run ./setup.
