Please attach the image to the bug, it will remain as a document describing the
issue (a link on the internet is likely to disappear soon).

If I understood clearly, you have the Gtk2 libraries installed.
Then it looks like an issue in the desktop detection (AOO knows nothing about
TDE, nor do I - Fedora 16 has no TDE packages to try).

Please try on a terminal to force the desktop detection, and then run AOO from
that terminal:

~] export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN="gtk";export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP="gnome"
~] /opt/openoffice.org3/program/soffice

Can you find that option now on the Options dialog?
