    It would be better to specify the exact path to it:
    Code:
    /usr/bin/soffice
    If it doesn't work, you can try to start it as root (just to see if it works, don't use this program, or any other as root) :
    Code:
    sudo /usr/bin/soffice
    or
    Code:
    gksu /usr/bin/soffice
    If it still doesn't work, please the output of
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/bin/soffice

    same thing
    Code:
    $ ls -l /usr/bin/soffice
    lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 39 2006-06-16 22:51 /usr/bin/soffice -> /etc/openoffice.org-2.0/program/soffice

    I think you are ready to upgrade to Ubuntu 6.06

    Ok mark this solved for installation. I got the solution from the folks at the Ooo support forums. What was wrong was that alien was messing up user perms. Executing with sudo this chmod operation solved it.
    Code:
    chmod a+xr /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice
    Hey In the meantime yes I did order the Dapper Drake CDs. If it will run on my old Pentium2 with 196megRam, we' ll have an install party! thanks again dude

    Yes, you will at least be able to run the XFCE4 desktop. In comes in a package called "xubuntu-desktop", that you can install like that :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
    My guest is it will be faster than Breezy, even if you use Gnome (comes with Gnome 2.14, which is very much faster than 2.12).
