Comments on: Universal Go-oo 3.1 build available Blogs and Ramblings of the openSUSE Members Fri, 06 Mar 2020 17:50:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: petr Sat, 06 Jun 2009 17:09:39 +0000 I tested all, but nothing help me.
But – after I tray it as root and – voala! Calc opened, and very quickly!
I thing, start go-oo as root is not good idea…
I report bug to bugzilla.

By: Petr Mladek Fri, 05 Jun 2009 10:08:14 +0000 If it still does not work, could you please provide the list of the installed ooo packages? You could get it by the command:

rpm -qa | grep -e ooobasis -e openoffice

By: Petr Mladek Thu, 04 Jun 2009 18:13:56 +0000 BTW: Do you use KDE or GNOME? I wonder if it helps to uninstall ooobasis3.1-gnome-integration and ooobasis3.1-kde-integration.

By: Petr Mladek Thu, 04 Jun 2009 18:06:26 +0000 Hmm, it is hard to say what is wrong on you system. It is possible that the installation is inconsistent (mixed upstream and Go-oo binaries). I would try to reinstall it. Please, remove all the OOo-related packages before. You might use the following commands:

1. remove all ooo related packages by the command: rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep -e ooobasis -e openoffice`
2. rm -rf /opt/openoffice.org3

If it does not help. Could you please report the bug at against the product “”? It would be great if you could attach strace, see

The bug will be solved by the developer who is responsible for the Go-oo linux build (I have only uploaded and announced it). Anyway, he would need the strace log.

By: petr Thu, 04 Jun 2009 17:21:06 +0000 I installed go-oo 3.1 en-US on my PC width Mandriva 2007.
When I start from xterm: /opt/openoffice.org3/program/scalc, I see splash-screen, and that is all.
No mistake from xterm.

Go-oo 3.0 has not problem. Openoffice 3.1 from Sun has not problem.
Go-oo 3.1 – only splash-screen.

By: Petr Mladek Thu, 04 Jun 2009 11:59:43 +0000 Unfortunately, I see the bug in the Go-oo-3.1. We had time to include the fix but we missed the bug. We need to improve our “look-for-blocker-bugs” process.

By: Jozef Thu, 04 Jun 2009 11:45:33 +0000 I just tried Go-oo Calc and is much better than Calc in upstream version. Especially I want to thank you for data filter in Calc.

By: Ped Thu, 04 Jun 2009 10:09:22 +0000 Is the #101690 fixed in Go-oo 3.1?
Or how may I figure out? (without downloading and trying)

By: Petr Mladek Thu, 04 Jun 2009 09:30:52 +0000 We do our best to release Go-oo at the same time as the upstream OOo is released. Unfortunately, it is not that easy because Go-oo has many extra changes and they need to be stabilized as well. The Go-oo release is usually delayed by few days or even weeks. The OOo-3.1 release was quite complicated. The upstream release was delayed by more than one month. The Go-oo release was delayed even more because we decided to have there OpenXML export in a useful state. Also the extended row limit in Calc caused some regressions that were discovered too late. We will do our best to avoid such a big delay in the future.

By: Anonymous Thu, 04 Jun 2009 08:06:36 +0000 I was confusing when Open Office 3.1 was released a months ago and Go-oo 3.1 was released later. I didn´t know what to download. I thought that Go-oo was released at the same time.
Both products should be released at exactly the same time.
