    I think I installed OpenOffice 1.1. I installed it in the /usr/local/OpenOffice1.1. How do I run or were are the apps? As a newbie and Windows user The app puts the information in the start menu and I take it Mandrake 9.2 (or any other Linux) will not add it in the start menu.. How do I add all of the OpenOffice icons in the start menu and were are they for OpenOffice?

    if you did install openoffice then to start it open a terminal (normaly by right clicking on the root window and selecting xterm or aterm or whatever you have. it depends what windowmanager you use but you didnt say) and type "openoffice" without the ""
