My .orbitrc file also contains the line "ORBIIOPUNIX=1".  In addition, you
need to modify your J2SDK installation to enable Java Accessibility support to
interoperate with GNOME Accessibility.  Do the following:

[assuming your GNOME installation is in /opt/gnome-2.2 and your J2SDK is in

 % ln -s /opt/gnome-2.2/share/jar/  \
 % ln -s /opt/gnome-2.2/share/jar/gnome-java-bridge.jar  \

Verify this is working within Java by executing the Stylepad sample

 % cd /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/demo/jfc/Stylepad
 % /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/bin/java -jar Stylepad.jar

If you are getting feedback from Gnopernicus from Stylepad (it should feel
very much like Text Editor), then your Java environment is working and you
should give OpenOffice 1.1 beta2 another try.
