Openoffice on Apple's X11
Authored by: pnarzem on Jan 10, '03 11:57:22AM

I don't know about you but Openoffice did work with Apple's X11. I ran it from the command line according to the instructions and it was alot faster than the provided AppleScript. The AppleScript asked where my XDarwin was. since I deleted it I pointed it to X11 and it eventually came up.

I built my own bourne shell script and ran openoffice and it came up in seconds. I then added the script to the application in the quartz window manager and now I click away to bring up the apps.

For me, The latest OpenOffice seems to work (or al least launch without any problem).

Just one thing, if you are using an international keyboard, Sing Ouroboros/XDarwin manages a correct keymap, you can do

xmodmap -pke > ~/.Xmodmap

while in XDarwin
and add

xmodmap .Xmodmap
exec quartz-wm

in your .xinitrc to have your (French in my case) keyboard back.

I think they may have fixed it. There were problems with the final beta of OpenOffice. I had a version from a few weeks earlier that worked fine as well. I believe that the problem was primarily with the auto launcher. The way of starting it I mentioned should work with all versions.

To get the fonts to work properly you have to run the Fondu utility. (I just submitted a hint on doing that)

Actually, no. I'm running the final beta and it works just fine with X11.
