Re: installing OpenOffice


OpenOffice Setup searches for certain Java versions in some standard directories, with standard names,
/usr/Java/j2re1.4.1, ...

I am not sure if the beta2 already searches for 1.4.2 or later versions.

In this case setting JAVA_HOME should work for you.

If not, please come back on me.

Hi, list.
Some comments here. While the soft links to the bridge is nice it doesn't
seam to work properly in every case. In my acase when making the links
failed to get results I copied the properties file and the
gnome-java-bridge.jar file into the jre and they worked fine ever since.
So if you don't get good results after making links to the files just copy
them over to the right places in your jre and it should work fine after

Hi Jane,

Hi.  I downloaded OpenOffice 1.1 beta2 and I can't install it.  Whenever
try to run the setup program, I don't get any speech from Gnopernicus.
I have "ORBIIOPIPv4=1" in my .orbitrc file and I have J2sdk 1.4.2
installed.  I have Java-access-bridge installed from CVS as of
What am I missing?
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

% 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.
