I have just installed StarOffice on my Slackware system, but I have
having a few problems. I naively expected to be able to drag a file
from gmc to staroffice to open it, but it fails. It gives me an error
message about not being able to open the file "file:/path/to/file".
Apparently staroffice doesn't like the url-type information it gets from
I even tried to make a symlink file: -> / in my home dir, so it could
open the url as a file, but then staroffice just hang.
Are somebody else using staroffice and gnome together? Do I need to do
BTW, I installed staroffice from Suse rpms, which I converted to
slackware tgz (with rpm2tgz), which I then unpacked manually. I might
have botched somewhere, but in general staroffice works ok. It only
crashes when I drag weird objects on top of it.
