Whenever I install Ubuntu these days, opening OpenOffice looks like this. There's LP#53574, with no solution in sight. However, every time I was able to solve this by reinstalling openoffice:

$ dpkg -P openoffice.org-common openoffice.org-core openoffice.org-help-en-gb \

And no, it does NOT feel good applying Windoze techniques in a current Linux system :-\
