Seems the only way to start the program is a two-step process - click the icon, then click another icon to access writer. 98% of the time all I use is Writer, and going through two steps is a pain in the butt.
I guess I'll give OpenOffice a try.
Hope you can streamline this important process.
Thank you very much for your report!
This is more or less the same issue as in bug 50278, therefore I mark this report as a duplicate of the latter.
