I thought I would try go-openoffice to see if there was a difference that I
could tell from the way I use it. In short, installed go-oo and the
dependencies. go-oo WILL start for root, but WILL NOT start for normal users.
The error dialog received at the same time the splash appears says
"The application cannot be started.
The user interface language cannot be determined."
Launching it from the command line results in the following error:
15:26 alchemy:~> soffice
[Java framework] Error in function createSettingsDocument (elements.cxx).
OK, that doesn't jive with the dialog reported error, but I'm sure they are
related. I have googled it and the only thing I ran across was the suggestion
to check /etc/locale.gen to determine if the correct language was uncommented.
I believe it is:
15:32 alchemy:~> noc /etc/locale.gen
The strange part is the fact it starts for root, but not a regular user (that
normally sounds like a permissions problem). Java runtime permissions?? Where?
Let me know what to check and whether you want me to file it as a bug and I'll
be happy to.
