Bug#337610: BASIC error on saving a document

Martin Steigerwald
Package: openoffice.org-writer
Version: 2.0.0-2
Severity: normal

Hello, today I installed OpenOffice.org 2.0 on my Debian etch/sid
system. It works nicely, thanks for the great work.

But there is some glitch on saving OOWriter documents. It gives
two BASIC errors:

"Error loading BASIC of document
General Error.
General input/output error."

"Error loading BASIC of document
General Error.
General input/output error."

Well what this "general error" is trying to tell me is:
Those directories are not there. ;-) In fact I do not have a
/usr/lib/openoffice/share/basic/WebWizard/ directory on my
system at all.

Ah, I found the cause: Its some old stuff in
~/openoffice.org2. I used a Klik package of a pre-version of
OpenOffice.org 2 before.

After rm -rf .openoffice.org2/ saving OOWriter document works
as expected.

I am still reporting this as other users having used a OOo 2 klik
package or some other OOo 2 installation before, might have
the same problem. Maybe a readme or probably even a debconf
warning message (at least on install, not on upgrade) should
mention that such problems may happen when
non-debian-official OOo 2 was installed before.

Anyway when its just my previous setup and no one else complains
feel free to close the bug. ;)

Regards, Martin Steigerwald
