Running OpenOffice from in cygwin.
Sun May 13 06:49:00 GMT 2007
I have been trying to open OpenOffice to read MSWord files from inside a
script in cygwin. I figured out how to add OpenOffice to my path, but it
still failed. I then went back to trying on the command line.
The script had left the document in /tmp/ME3268/WSPC.doc. So:-
a) In /tmp/ME3268 - "swriter WSPC.doc" opens fine.
b) In /tmp - "swriter ME3268/WSPC.doc" opens fine.
c) In / - "swriter tmp/ME3268/WSPC.doc" opens fine.
d) Anywhere - "swriter /tmp/ME3268/WSPC.doc" does not open and leaves no
messages. It seems to not like a full path.
The script was of course running in my home directory and uses the full
path. Is this a cygwin problem or an OpenOffice problem? Does anyone
understand what is going on? I have of course found a work around, but
it is messy.
