[ Forwarding from Actually, I am quite
sure this came up before but I don't find an issue. Am I blind? Mark
as duplicate as needed ]

I tried to open a Word document. After calling                                  
  ooffice x.doc                                                                 
the OOo splash appeared and disappeared again, then nothing happened. ps        
showed a sleeping OOo instance. I tried again calling only                      
and the welcome screen appeared, allowing me to choose a document to open.      
Again, nothing happened; the welcome screen persisted.                          
While preparing a bug report, I found out that the package              was not installed. After installation, everything         
worked as expected.                                                             
I think the OOo main binary should show *some* kind of error message or         
other information indicating that it won't proceed, due to a required           
component not being installed.
