I purchased RedHat 6.1
It came with star office.
I installed it but cannot figure out
where the executable is or how to execute it.

Note,
During install StarOffice informed me
I had not installed java support
, and that the KDE menu had been
updated (which I is not install).

If you were root when you installed it the executable is
/root/Office51/bin/soffice

To start it
cd /root/Office51/bin
../soffice

You can make an icon in gnome, but I don,t remember how because I've been using kde lately.

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
