There's a folder of "distro menu integration" rpm's in with the
downloadable OO2. Just pick the one for Debian and add it to the main
folder before running alien.
The intructions I saw originally said "run alien -k ..." . The -k option
does the following.
By default, alien adds one to the minor version number of each package
it converts. If this option is given, alien will not do this.
sudo ln -s /opt/openoffice.orgx.x/program/soffice /usr/bin/
sudo chmod 755 /usr/bin/soffice
Works like a charm.
