I.e.: OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome soffice OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kde soffice OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kde4 soffice now looks like we can add: OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=tde Tim, do you know if this same patch will work with openoffice? If so, I can try a rebuild of OO with it and pass it along to OO if it works. -- David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
