On Fedora, you can't install AOO because the URE package is obsoleted by
libreoffice-ure. You have to uninstall libreoffice, install AOO, and
blacklist libreoffice in the package manager configuration
(exclude=libreoffice* in /etc/yum.cfg), otherwise every time you update
the system, lo-ure will replace aoo-ure.

The "good news" are that this isn't new at all, it also had to be done
in times.

I've been told that a similar problem happens on Debian, and on ubuntu,
with the desktop-integration package.

In conclusion, changing the shell scrip name won't solve deeper issues
that make the package even impossible to install.
