OOo errors, help with making a symlink
I had a difficult OpenOffice.org 2.0 installation after getting rid of OOo 1.1 . Now I get "Error loading BASIC of document" (with path) errors upon startup and/or save of documents. This doesn't affect the working of the program which goes just fine.
However, I can't install new dictionnaries. Wizzard works fine but upon restart they don't appear.
It appears the two things are linked. Some googling and I found someone with the same problem who got it solved.
As I understand the problem, because of old OOo installations the programs looks for components in (empty) directory
which I found to be in directory
The proposed solution is to symlink the two directories. My problem is... I don't know how to do that :roll: . I'm a complete newbie with linux and not a command line fanatic.
I tried creating shortcuts with Konqueror (logging in as root to have permissions) but it doesn't work. As I understand, a "link to location" is not a symlink. = )
So, could anyone help me out ? How could I link the second directory to the first, so as to "fool" OpenOffice ?
Thanks for your answer !
