[Solved] Trouble launching openoffice 2.2 hebrew

Postby naturally » Wed Dec 26, 2007 8:49 pm

Hello!

I have ubuntu Gutsy (7.10). I've revmoed all the openoffice packages that come with ubuntu and installed the hebrew version of openoffice ( version 2.2 ).
All goes well but when I'm trying to launch the program using the 'Application' menu, nothing happens.
When I try to launch it from the shell this is what I get:
$ openoffice.org2.2

(process:12986): Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by C library

(soffice.bin:12986): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
Using the fallback 'C' locale.


can anyone help? please?

thanks

The latest version is 2.3.1, does it include the Hebrew language ?
You should check if there is no language pack for that version, see here : Change language for user interface (menus & help files).

I move your thread to the Linux section.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

Well, I can't fix the probelm.
I removed completely, using the 'synaptic package manager', everything that is related to openoffice.
When the I installed the hebrew version of openoffice and the hebrew package the probrem remained.
I removed again completely everything that is related to openoffice and tried to install it from the 'synaptic package manager'.
When the installation completed successfull, I tried launching from the menu -- and nothing happened.
Here is what I got when I tried to launch from the shell.
openoffice

** (process:23019): WARNING **: Unknown error forking main binary / abnormal early exit ...


Know anything about the problem?
I will try to post in the Ubuntu forum as well.

Try to rename your OOo user profile ~/.openoffice.org2 and launch again OOo. A new profile will be generated.

Thanks for your reply!
But I saw it after I solved it.
I removed the folder /root/.openoffice.org2 and the reinstalled openoffice.

Do you mean that you run OOo as root ? Or as a regular user ? It would be strange that removing the root profile for OOo would impact the behavior for a regular user.
