StarOffice 5.1 help index:



The first time you run StarOffice, a setup program will run to copy files to your home directory and configure your environment.

Running StarOffice 5.1




Printing is not currently supported on Linux.

Known Bugs

We have occasionally seen minor problems when switching between the Sun and Linux versions, but StarOffice can usually recover from these problems on its own.

Linux users may see an error regarding plugins. It appears that this can be safely ignored.
