To run a program in a modified environment use the program called: env
For more info see the man pages. I came across this post because I created a
POSIX locale shs_CA which isn't supported in OpenOffice and OO.o would crash
when I started it with the shs_CA locale. So I now start OO.o from GNOME
env LANG=en_CA.UTF-8 ooffice
