I have some problems to start Open Office on Ubuntu 10.10. I've tried to start it by menu and by terminal (oowriter). Both ways are not working.
It's confusing to see that starting OpenOffice by typing ooffice in the terminal is working fine. So that's a workaround for me to use the OpenOffice Writer, but it's no satisfying solution.
When I execute "ooffice -writer" (see comments) I get the following message:
terminate called after throwing an instance of com::sun::star::lang::WrappedTargetRuntimeException'
I figured out that root can start oowriter. So it seems to be a permission problem. It's a default Ubuntu OpenOffice installation.
How can I fix this?
