Hi to all OpenOffice.org lovers!!!
-----------------------------------

Congratulations to OO.o team --- 2.0.4 is out!!!

Let's colorize OO.o splashes!!!
These files let your OO.o programs have it's own splash screen.

Contents
---------

# intro-*.bmp -- spash screens
# ooo-wrapper -- modified original ooo-wrapper script
# README -- what you're reading

Installation
-------------

!!! Beware: this thing was tested ONLY on my Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake)
Installing this software
requires changing original ooo-wrapper script
and setting write permissions to program folder

!!! USE IT ON YOUR OWN RISK


1. Locate your OO.o program folder, e.g. '/usr/lib/openoffice/program'
and copy splashes into it

# mv /usr/lib/openoffice/program/intro.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/intro.bmp.orig
# cp intro-*.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/

2. Locate your ooo-wrapper script, e.g. '/usr/bin/ooo-wrapper'
and replace it

# mv /usr/bin/ooo-wrapper /usr/bin/ooo-wrapper.bak
# cp ooo-wrapper /usr/bin

3. Change write permissions of OO.o program folder, so user can
make symlinks in it

# sudo chmod o+w /usr/lib/openoffice/program/

That's all. It's simple. Enjoy.

These splash screens are a nice change from the drab old openoffice splash screen I've been seeing for about a year now.

There's no splash screen for ooo-draw though :(

I couldn't use the ooo-wrapper script for some reason so I just wrote a simple script:

#!/bin/bash

prog=$1

ln -fs /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/intro$prog.bmp /opt/openoffice.org2.0/program/intro.bmp;

soffice $prog;

and that seems to do the trick.

Thanks for some nice splash screens.
