Found a bug in OO when trying to use extension template packages, but it may effect other extensions as well. Installing a template package such as one from Sun:
The actual installation seems to go just fine. However, when you go to use a new template, OO throws an error:
/usr/home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r/uno_packages/cache/uno_packages/yTznki_/OOOP-templates-separated-en-US-188.8.131.52.oxt/template/en-US/forms/Confidentiality_Agreement.ott does not exist
When we dig deeper into this, we find a very similar path in the .openoffice.org folder:
/usr/home/kris/.openoffice.org/3/user/uno_packages/ <everything after this point is the same)
The only differences are 3 -> 3r, and user/uno_packages is becoming uno_packages.
We can fix the issue this way:
ln -s /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3 /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r
ln -s /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3/user/uno_packages /home/kris/.openoffice.org/3r/uno_packages
After creating the directory / symlink, the templates all work like a champ.
This is obviously a workaround, but now that this is known, maybe somebody can figure out where in the OO code this path error is occuring.
How-To-Repeat: Simply install the template package mentioned above.
