    Hi Folks:
    I'm sorry if this topic has been beaten to death. I have a dual
    g5 running 10.3.9. Gimp works with X11. I think the install goes
    well with OpenOffice, at least I get the prompt for system fonts on
    the install. When I double click the app in the app folder,
    OpenOffice pops up on the Menu Bar, then X11 and its XTERM window, and
    after 5 seconds of so, OpenOffice appears to close. I never see
    anything else of OpenOffice. There's nothing in the crash-log or
    system log saying anything about openoffice. It just seems to close
    normally. I seen some talk of issues with fonts, but I didn't have
    those fonts anyway. I do have XCODE installed, if that has anything to
    do with it.
    Thanks for any pointers.
    Harry

    Hi - I think NeoOffice works better on Macs (it doesn't require X11 to
    work):
