I installed staroffice 5.2 under root, but i want to be able to use it under my other users. Do I have to install it under my users too?

One full install should be fine.

You have to run the config for the other users as well. I will look like a install but it is just setting up the profiles.

Hi. I also installed staroffice as root under root, then logged in as another user to try to run setup. Problem is that user has no access to root. So I logged back in as root, wacked the staroffice folder under root & reinstalled - this time I specified /usr/shared/soffice52 as the install folder. The install created it, then I was able to run the setup as another user with no problems.
This should work for you.

Install under root but add the switch "/m". This allows each user to run the one version installed but with their own personal setups.

Hope this helps.
