When saving documents in OpenOffice, I don't know if anyone else noticed, but the default MEPIS install has a weird problem when you save documents for the first time in OO. A long chain of error dialogs comes up saying can't find this macro, can't find that macro.


Here is an example screenshot

Here is the fix

Create a symbolic link called "ooo-1.1" in /usr/lib that points to /usr/lib/openoffice.


Here are the steps

1) Open a terminal

2) su - (su to root)

3) cd /usr/lib

4) ln -s openoffice/ ooo-1.1


Please note that this works for MEPIS 3.3.2-test03, which is what I am currently using (as of 26-Sept-2005). I had experienced the exact same issue with MEPIS 3.3.1-x; the only difference might be the actual directory name, "ooo-1.1", which might be "ooo-1.0". (But I doubt it).
