I installed everything via yast, which says I have (i586)
from openSUSE-11.1-Oss repository.

You appear to be missing soffice in /usr/lib/ooo3/program

did you install OpenOffice_org-libs-core? It contains the executable
elements that appear to be missing in your install.

Thanks Patrick! YaST says that OpenOffice_org-libs-core is NOT
installed, so I've installed it. Odd that it wasn't pulled in as a
dependency since the oowriter script clearly relies on it.

However, I'm not out of the woods yet. Now I see:

~> oowriter
soffice.bin: xcb_io.c:454: _XRead: Assertion `dpy->xcb->reply_data != 0'

The splash screen comes up briefly before the error message. A quick
google threw up a hint about opengl, about which I know nothing. Is
there a problem running openoffice over ssh?

Thanks, Dave
