The script is a simplified OpenOffice.org installer. The default OOo
download is a tar.gz file with about 12 RPM files. This is a GUI program
that extracts everything and asks the user where to put it. If the user
chooses a location that is writable only by root (e.g. /usr/local) I
should run gksudo to ask for a password. So far so good. But what if the
user is not in the sudoers list? I need to know whether it makes sense
to run gksudo for this user or not.
/\/_/ A life? Sounds great!
\/_/ Do you know where I could download one?
