Linux commands for OpenOffice applications

In order to create a launcher for a particular OpenOffice application, or if you wish to run one from a terminal in Linux, you will need to know which command opens each application. Unlike Microsoft Office, for example, there is one command to run OpenOffice to which you can add a parameter to run a particular application.

Command to run the Writer word processor: -writer

Command to run the Calc spreadsheet application: -calc

Command to run the Impress presentation application: -impress

Command to run the Base database application: -base

Command to run the Draw vector graphics editor: -draw
