I found out how to change the start splash in open office, just create an image, save it as bmp. The open a terminal, type sudo <where the image is saved at>/intro.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/intro.bmp. That should do it for you. But, if you don't want a splash screen (and faster OOo startup time) install ooqstart-gnome.


P.S. I am going to start working on a OOo splash right now

For Feisty:

1) Download (or make your own) splash-screen in .bmp-format.

2) Backup the original splash:

sudo mv /usr/lib/openoffice/program/openintro_ubuntu.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/openintro_ubuntu.bmp_BAK

3) Set your own splash:

sudo cp <image>.bmp /usr/lib/openoffice/program/openintro_ubuntu.bmp
