    Open Office segmentation fault


    I just used up2date to update my openoffice suite. When I try to run it as a normal user, it will try to start but then give a segmentation fault error and die. I recently discovered I do not have this problem if I logon as root and then try to run it. Can someone let me know how I can go about solving this? Thanks a lot.

    Use a terminal and run oowriter. See the exact error message you get and post it here.

    All it says is "Segmentation fault" and then gives me a prompt. Not much to work with, I know.
