OOo crash 20091116 iso (SOLVED)
« on: 19.11.2009, 18:31:59 »
Strange OOo error in US-20091116.iso install:

I wanted to change the toolbar (small icons), so I went to tools - options, change to small icons and tested other scheme than Tango. After hitting OK all buttons disappeared, I got text instead. But now I can't reset! When I open the "Tools" menu and click "Options" OOo shuts down instantly.

I guess something has gone wrong in the OOo split base process???

Tried the same from a Live USB US-20091118.iso. Resizing menu buttons works, but if i choose any theme other than tango it crashes.

Maybe I should do that update (openofficesplit-base-en-US) that I'm notified of?  :D EDIT: No, upgrading didnt help  :(

Comment or remove the line

Code: [Select]
export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=GNOME
in the $HOME/.bash_profile, log out and in your current user and the size and the style of the icons in OOO can be changed.

Thank you, order restored  :)

OO's menu lists seven different icon styles, but only two (tango and oxygen) seems to be available? If I try another, the icons are replaced with text. Not that I really care, the most important thing was to change the size.
