       OOo-wrapper [common options]      [--skip-check]      [--]

       OOo-wrapper  is  a  helper  script  to  launch the OpenOf­
       fice.org application. It checks  your  own  OpenOffice.org
       configuration  and starts the OpenOffice.org in a selected
       mode. The mode is selected by the link which was  used  to
       start the wrapper.

       If  your configuration is missing or broken then the wrap­
       per tries to fix it and uses next rules:

       1. If the  configuration  does  not  exist  for  installed
          OpenOffice.org  version  and also it does not exist any
          configuration for an older OpenOffice.org version  then
          the default configuration is installed.

       2. If  the  configuration does not exist for the installed
          OpenOffice.org version and a configuration for an older
          OpenOffice.org  version  is found and it is usable then
          it is used else the default configuration is installed.

       3. If  your configuration is broken and the wrapper is not
          able to repair it then  the  default  configuration  is

       Note:  The  wrapper  would  not  lost  any unknown file or
              directory on your computer All files  and  directo­
              ries which could be replaced by the default config­
              uration are saved with the suffix .old or  with  an
              unique  suffix .XXXXXX. There is only one exception
              if the default  configuration  replaces  the  older

       You  can skip all checks and run the OpenOffice.org appli­
       cation immediately with the option --skip-check.


       The configuration for version 1.1 of OpenOffice.org is not
       compatible with older 1.0.x versions of OpenOffice.org.

       This wrapper installs the new default configuration in the
       version  specific  directory  $HOME/OpenOffice.org1.1   by
       default.  Thereafter you can still use your older configu­

       The application OpenOffice.org has  capability  to  update
       your older configuration for the actual version of OpenOf­
       fice.org. Unfortunately this version  of  the  OOo-wrapper
       does not support this feature directly.

       You  can  update  your  old  configuration  by the command
       OOo --gui. It will start the  native  installation  wizard
       which  will  offer  you  the  update of the configuration.
       Note that if you have already installed the  default  con­
       figuration  for  the actual version of OpenOffice.org then
       you must remove it to activate  the  installation  wizard.
       You can do it by the interactive tool OOo-setup.


              do  not check your configuration and run the origi­
              nal OOo wrapper immediately.

              save your current OpenOffice.org configuration  and
              install  the  default one. There are two possibili­
              ties to save current configuration:

              Either to install  the  new  default  configuration
              into  an another place.  So, the current configura­
              tion will leave as is.  Only  the  .sversionrc  and
              .user60.rdb  files  will be saved. Also the file or
              directory which occupies the new location  will  be
              saved.  If  possible  then  the suffix .old will be
              used for the saved files and  directories  else  an
              unique suffix .XXXXXX will be used for them.

              Or  to  install  the default configuration into the
              same place. So, your current  configuration  always
              will be saved with the suffix .old. Attention: your
              older saved configuration will be lost.

       --gui  use the interactive graphical  installation  wizard
              to install the default configuration.

              with  java binaries. For example /usr/lib/java/bin.

              By default any available and usable SDK is used.

              This option is usable also with the  --gui  option.
              So the given SDK will be offered by the installtion
              wizard as the default value.

       --lang lang
              define the language for the user interface and  the
              default language for documents.

              The  interactive  graphical  installation, which is
              enabled by the option --gui, does not support  lan­
              guage  selection in the meantime. The --lang option
              will be ingnored in this case and the  localization
              defined   by   the   symbolic   link   /opt/OpenOf­
              fice.org/program/instdb.ins will be used.

       --     delimiter  between  the  wraper  related  and   the
              OpenOffice.org related options


              print only error messages

              display  messages  in an extra window instead of in
              the current shell

              This options was designed to start OOo-wrapper from
              menu or from an icon on the desktop.


       All  options after the last OOo-wrapper relaed option will
       be passed to the original OpenOffice.org wrapper.

       You can use the delimiter --  to  separate  options  which
       would  be  normaly  processed  by the OOo-wrapper, but you
       want to pass them to the original OpenOffice.org  wrapper.


       The  available  links enable to simply launch some OpenOf­
       fice.org helper applications like setup or printer  admin­
       istration  tool or start the OpenOffice.org application in
       any interested mode like writer or spreadsheet.

       OOo    use this link to start the  OpenOffice.org  aplica­
              tion in the default mode.

              use this link to work with spreadsheets.
              use this link to create a HTML document.

              use this link to write a text document. This is the
              default mode.

              use this link to configure your printer settings.

              use  this  link  to  change, to repair or to remove
              your OpenOffice.org configuration.
