OpenOffice.org Mac OS X (X11)

Stable Release

OpenOffice.org X11 2.0 final has been released for English and German. It runs on Panther (10.3) and Tiger (10.4) and needs X11 to run. Also, OpenOffice.org 2.0.1 final for French has been released. Both can be found on the 2.0 release page:

http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/2.0.x.html

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:

http://porting.openoffice.org/mac/ooo-osx_downloads.html

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).

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.

Intel Builds

OpenOffice.org X11 2.0 runs on Intel based Macs! You can find it here: ftp://ooopackages.good-day.net/pub/OpenOffice.org/MacOSX

This is still a release canidate, which means while mostly stable, it may still have bugs. If you find some, report them to mac@porting.openoffice.org.

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.

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.
