[edit] OpenOffice.org Mac OS X (X11)

[edit] Stable Release

OpenOffice.org X11 3.0 has been released. It runs on Panther (10.3) and Tiger (10.4) and needs X11 to run. It can be found on the 2.0 release page:

The previous version of OpenOffice.org Mac OS X (X11) is 1.1.2, runs on Mac OS X 10.2.x, 10.3.x, and 10.4.x and is localized in English. It can be found at the download page for the OOo Mac port:

If your preferred language is not English, check with your OOo NativeLang project (e.g. fr.openoffice.org) to see if there is a version of OOo Mac OS X (X11) available in your language. These localized versions run only on Mac OS X 10.3.x or 10.4.x, but not both (or on 10.2.x).

[edit] Development Builds, Betas, and Release Candidates

Development builds of the upcoming OpenOffice.org 2.0 are available for Mac OS X. You can find the latest builds by checking the mac@porting list from OpenOffice.org. Also, the more stable beta builds will get links posted in the Trinity "developement" forums.

[edit] Getting X11 for your Mac

You can find X11 in the Applications/Utilities folder. If you do not have it installed, here is how to get it:

  • If you have Mac OS X 10.3.x or 10.4.x, the X11 package is included on your Mac OS X installation CDs/DVD. It may be pre-installed on new Macs.
    • Mac OS X 10.3.x: The X11User.pkg is on Disc 3 of the Mac OS X Install CD set
    • Mac OS X 10.4.x: The X11User.pkg is located in the Optional Packages folder of the Mac OS X Install DVD
This version will not work on Mac OS X 10.4.x

Important! if you upgraded from 10.3 to 10.4 and had X11 installed, you will need to manually upgrade X11 using the 10.4 DVD, as this is not a part of the standard upgrade.

[edit] Spotlight Integration

If you use Mac OS X 10.4.x, you can add Spotlight support for OpenOffice.org and OpenDocument files by downloading and installing NeoLight.
