Open OpenOffice documents from a network share using nautilus

Under my gnome desktop, I had a problem when tired to open documents from a network share with OpenOffice. When I tired the spalsh screen appeared, but the document did not open.

After some searching I found the debian squeze has a package I was curious what is the difference between the standard package and this one. Soon I found it's home page:

Almost the first line said:

Gnome-VFS - G/OO.o allows transparent access to allow documents to be loaded / saved from a range of Gnome VFS backends, eg. Samba shares.

I installed and the problem went away.
