    I haven't tried to reinstall. Did you mean, the open office version or the suse distro?

    I tried reinstalling from the Suse disc and it wouldn't install Open Office. I downloaded a version of it from the OpenOffice site, but I'm not sure which folder to install it to in order to make it so that all local users can use it. /Bin?

    open office. I did a google search, and that error only came up for an old version.

    I am not sure if you can install through yast (perhaps a suse person will chime in).

    If you use the one from open office's website, I would install it in /opt (although others may have other thoughts )

    thanks for the help. I tried a bunch of different stuff and then mysteriously, i was able to reinstall OpenOffice from the install disc, using Yast. This was preferable because it's OpenOffice 2-something and hte install from the site is 1.4, i think?

    Anyway, it seems to be working okay at the moment.
