    I wanted to try out OpenOffice so i installed it along with the xcode tools software from the tiger cd but when i go to the applications/utilities folder, its not there. I know it installed something because it took up space after the install. Is it hidden from my eyes or I am just doing something wrong?

    Thanks

    Did you do the separate installation for XWindows/X11?

    XCode includes SDKs for X11, but won't actually install X11 on your machine. X11 is an option when you install MacOS X.

    Or you can use fink/dports and build XDarwin.

    For Tiger, X11 is an install option during the install of OS X. The XCode install has an option to install the X11 header files. The header files are only needed if you are developing or compiling X11 programs.

    There are details at http://www.chemistry.ucsc.edu/~wgscott/xtal/x11.html with a link to a stand-alone X11 installer.
