question about OpenOffice environment variables

Kay Schenk-2
In issue 125499 --
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=125499

I'm wondering if the  environment variables might come into play here. Info
at: https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Environment_Variables

I can certainly set OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP, but I'm wondering where I can find
additional information on SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN. Anybody?

Right now I'm using the freedesktop.org desktop environment. Maybe I need
to track down what else comes into play here besides what's in the spec
file?

You can find some discussion with screenshots here:
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=27216

But honestly I don't see a difference between setting it to "kde" and
"gtk" on my system. While if I set it to "gen", I get a different look
and feel (vaguely resembling an old version of Windows, see
http://i.imgur.com/jZwN8Gy.png if this isn't clear) but then OpenOffice
segfaults on exit.

Regards,
   Andrea.

Hi Andrea,

there's some information about the usage of environment variables in OOo
within OOo WIKI:

Kind regards, Joost

That was tested on GNOME 3, with the official 4.1.1 version of OpenOffice.
