OpenOffice.org Writer

Start Writer by clicking on the big K, scrolling up to the >OpenOffice.org menu (in some distributions, check under the Office menu), and clicking on OpenOffice.org Writer. The first time you start Writer, the Address Data Source AutoPilot dialog box will appear. The applications in OpenOffice.org can access information in your Netscape or Mozilla address book from an external LDAP server or from a number of other data sources, such as a database file. This information can then be used when you are creating mailing labels or distribution lists. If you don't have anything set up, don't worry. Simply click Cancel, and you are done.

Shell Out

To run OpenOffice.org Writer from the command line (or via your <Alt+F2> shortcut), use the command oowriter (think OpenOffice.org Writer). Please note that some distributions may still use swriter (the StarOffice version of the command).
