Currently using IceWM as window manager.
I ran the setup file as local user, and was able to uninstall the local setup for Openoffice. But can't seem to uninstall it completely from my workstation.
The Uninstall deletes OpenOffice in : /home/maxwell/OpenOfficexxx
But in /opt/OpenOffice/ nothing happens. It won't uninstall there.
I tried running the setup as root, but then the Konsole doesn't recognize "setup" as a command.
On the OpenOffice site I can't find any information, and via google most searches come up with windows uninstall information.
Anyone here with any experience in uninstalling OpenOffice ?

but, euhm, well, I didn't find it (now that's not a new story is it).
I used the search function as well. No luck.
I did do an install with the tarball from OpenOffice.org, and not of the Mandrake discs. I didn't know it was on those discs.
Damnit, These first linux steps are complicated.
And I haven't even begun getting the sound working

P.S. OK since you installed from source, it may be different for your system. But look in the source directory of Open Office, where you unpacked the app with the file manager.
Look for an icon called setup. Double click on this and it should bring up a menu that allows you to uninstall Open Office.
It could be under /usr/lib/openoffice/ as well, or in your home directory.
If you canīt find it, in a console, type openoffice. Look for the path to the library or main program, then look for the setup icon.
