I've just installed 2.1 in Suse 10.2 without any drama.

Hi Basil,

I've done as you described and my 10.2 OOo menu entries disappeared. I'd have thought the included SUSE desktop integration package would've dealt with that. How about you?

Well mine "disappeared" when I installed the earlier version from OO some many months ago but the original icon from the 10.2 install remained and all I did was to alter the Properties>Application to be able to boot the part I most often use (the word processor). For the latest install (2.1) I changed this to ' -writer %U'.

All the bits are shown of course under Office in the main 'geecko'>Applications>Office menu and you can bring them to the desktop (just like in Windows) by right-clicking on each part and sending it to the desktop.

But, yes, the intergrated icon disappears it seems but as this doesn't bother me I didn't try and see if there is a way to create it. (I think the integrated icon had 'oofromteplate' in the Application entry under Properties.) When SUSE releases its version of 2.1 then it shouldn't be a big problem to uninstall this one from OO -- if one thinks it is all that important to have this integrated icon, that is.
