    Linux Mint 13 already has LibreOffice installed, which is the preferred alternative (upgrade) to OpenOffice. It is not recommended to install OpenOffice alongside Libreoffice due to conflicts.

    There's a forum for Linux Mint users over here: http://forums.linuxmint.com/

    Maybe you'll find other people with the same OS who have solved your problem.

    Re: OpenOffice does not start

    On Ubuntu and Libux Mint LibreOffice and OpenOffice are usually installed to the /opt folder. for example
    /opt/libreoffice3.6/program/soffice
    The root application is actually called soffice. Individual applications swriter, scalc, sbase, smath, simpress.

    If you wish to start OpenOffice from the terminal you should invoke the appropriate module directly not OpenOffice.org.

    On my Ubuntu 12.04 and Mint 13 systems I have both LibreOffice 3.5 and 3.6 installed. The OpenOffice is equivalent to 3.4 and there are known problems trying to mix 3.4 with later systems.

    Unless you have overriding reasons for using OpenOffice.org, I would suggest you remove it and re-install LibreOffice. After all Ubuntu (Mint) were tested with LibreOffice not OpenOffice.
