Indeed I already had installed OpenOffice 2.1 rpms on openSUSE 10.2 by
downloading and unpacking OOo_2.1.0_LinuxIntel_install_en-US.tar.gz
directly from
This wasn't the Novell Edition with the Novell extensions (mono, agfa
fonts etc).

After the suggestion from Peter Buschbacheropening yesterday, I search
around without finding the OpenOffice project on However,
confusing enough (as previous discussed on this forum), I happened to
find the OpenOffice 2.1 rpms instead on

I've deleted my first installation above and replaced it a new
installation by the latter 2.1 Novell editon.

However, I became unsure if the OpenOffice Quickstarter is the same in
the two editions. On the OpenOffice Edition, the icon for the OpenOffice
Quickstarter menu at right on the Gnome panel, looked like the Writer
icon as shown on

No Quickstarter was automatically added on the Gnome panel during the
Novell Edition installation (maybe this didn't happend automatically
during the first installation either, but it bacame permanent on the

However there is a package OpenOffice_org-Quickstarter-1.0-514 which can
be started with the command /opt/kde3/bin/oooqs

Because this command temporary adds the previous (old) K-icon on the
Gnome panel instead, I became unsure if this is the same quickstarter as
used by the OpenOffice edition? (yes, I know Novell else has changed the
OOo applications square icons to round icons). Wasn't there a Gnome OOo
applet also?
