My goal is to run OpenOffice 2.0.3 on FreeBSD 6.1/KDE 3.5.3 with a german user interface. Until 
now OO is only in english. I did the following:

- Changed the localization as described at (in 
/etc/login.conf). The console and KDE is now in german (perfect!).

- Installed OpenOffice with make LOCALIZED_LANG=de install (after I did make install)

- installed the RPMS from

- Read a lot on 

Any hints?
