Office Suites


Starting OpenOffice

OpenOffice? is located in /s/std/bin and can usually be started simply by typing soffice at the command prompt. The first time OpenOffice runs it will install a standard environment in $HOME/OpenOffice.org$version (unless you specify an alternate location). This will take up about 3 MB.

Note:Do not select the complete install option; this will attempt to copy 300MB of files into your home directory.

Getting Help With OpenOffice

OpenOffice has extensive on-line documentation which should be consulted first. The next step would be to check the online documentation on the OpenOffice web site. If it is a problem which involves CSL supported facilities such as printers, or your questions were not answered elsewhere, send mail to lab@cs.wisc.edu, and we will look into the problem.

CrossOver Office for Linux

Crossover Office uses the wine Windows emulator to run Windows OS software on Linux. It is no longer supported by the lab. We are investigating a more recent version.
