I agree here. On make install clean, I never really got OOo to install. I
grabbedn the bins off the OOo site, run the tar in /home/me, and ran the
install. Bingo! instant OOo.

We just installed the Linux binary (as downloaded from for
1.0.3, and it's working very nicely so far. Ran 'install' (which gave a lot
of errors) then 'setup', and it works fine. Ticked 'KDE integration' and it
even put itself into the KDE menus properly. I'm about to try it on the
4.6.2 box as well. I'll let you all know if that works too.
