After I started xclock and it did appeared up, the oocalc started
working as well.
Before it I updated the openoffice.org package as well, but I do not
think it has anything to do with remote display working or not.

Now I get:
[ivo sarmax ivo]$ ssh ivo haskaa
ivo haskaa's password:
Last login: Thu Jun 10 11:25:24 2004 from sarmax
[ivo haskaa ivo]$ oocalc

Starting configuration import into user data ..
.. importing layer file:///home/ivo/SetupXcu.temp - succeeded
Starting OpenOffice.org ...

I wonder what was wrong and what fixed it...

Thanks for helping!
