As the OP on the comment...

I installed AOO from the unofficial Debian Ports tree hosted on[1].

There is a package in there called "openoffice-gnome-integration"[1], which is provided by
AOO; there is no package "openoffice-kde-integration" - which is what my comment was about.
So I have no mime-type integration aside from what I do manually; nor do I have it on any
menus in KDE4, so I have to run it via KRunner and an explicit path to the soffice binaries[3].

Now, if openoffice-gnome-integration will do the above without requiring GNOME to be installed,
great - I haven't tried it as the name suggests requiring GNOME which I don't have installed
(Kubuntu user).

If I'm missing something, then please point me in the right direction. And of course I'll
be happy to help with testing of any KDE integration.
