Macintosh OSX Panther OpenOffice 1.1.2 Starting and Quitting

  1. 1. Macintosh OSX Panther OpenOffice 1.1.2 Starting and Quitting OpenOffice has three pieces of software to run it: a. “Start OpenOffice.org,” by Terry Teague. This is used to launch OpenOffice. b. The program itself, “OpenOffice 1.1.2.” c. “X11” a Macintosh application that supports the use of OpenOffice. 1. Start OpenOffice by double clicking on the application “Start OpenOffice.org.app,” located in the “OpenOffice.org.1.1.2” folder. chg/hcc Page 1 of 8 7/27/04

The launch will continue. NOTE: X11 is in the Utilities folder, and is part of the OS install. If you do not find X11, quit the launch. Get the original install CDs. You will find X11 there and can install it. OR you can download it from Apple’s site on the internet, www.apple.com.
