Description aziem 2006-10-26 18:22:40 UTC
Several command line options are not documented in OOo's built in help in the
page titled "Starting the Software With Parameters."

-nofirststartwizard (related to issue 64615)

See the relevant source code here (seems a bit out of date, though):

This issue is for OOo's built-in help.  See issue 70904 for the analogous issue
for the command " -help" command.

Which manual? Which page.
Comment 2 aziem 2006-10-26 23:11:50 UTC
1. Start
2. Press F1
3. Click on the Find tab
4. Type "starting the openoffice" and the ENTER key

Comment 4 grsingleton 2006-10-27 13:10:13 UTC
Changed component.

Would like to point out that under Linux, invoking soffice from the commandline
with -h produces the following: 2.1  680m189(Build:9078)

Usage: soffice [options] [documents...]


-minimized    keep startup bitmap minimized.
-invisible    no startup screen, no default document and no UI.
-norestore    suppress restart/restore after fatal errors.
-quickstart   starts the quickstart service (only available on windows
platform)-nologo       don't show startup screen.
-nolockcheck  don't check for remote instances using the installation
-nodefault    don't start with an empty document
-headless     like invisible but no userinteraction at all.
-help/-h/-?   show this message and exit.
-writer       create new text document.
-calc         create new spreadsheet document.
-draw         create new drawing.
-impress      create new presentation.
-base         create new database.
-math         create new formula.
-global       create new global document.
-web          create new HTML document.
-o            open documents regardless whether they are templates or not.
-n            always open documents as new files (use as template).

-display <display>
      Specify X-Display to use in Unix/X11 versions.
-p <documents...>
      print the specified documents on the default printer.
-pt <printer> <documents...>
      print the specified documents on the specified printer.
-view <documents...>
      open the specified documents in viewer-(readonly-)mode.
-show <presentation>
      open the specified presentation and start it immediately
      Specify an UNO connect-string to create an UNO acceptor through which
      other programs can connect to access the API
      Close an acceptor that was created with -accept=<accept-string>
      Use -unnaccept=all to close all open acceptors
Remaining arguments will be treated as filenames or URLs of documents to open.

Therefore I think that On-line help matches what exist very well.
