I found I had to type 'soffice' or 'swriter', etc.
All that after adding /usr/local/OpenOffice1.1/program/ to my path
So, the full startup is:
It will depend a little on where you have it install and which
version you install.
I seem to remember getting this hint out of some online article, but I
don't remember what it was anymore.
Anyway, it amounts to an error in Openoffice documentation as it
is installed on FreeBSD.
