    I am running OS X 10.5.5. I have been running Open office for about 1 year now with no trouble.
    Recently after software updates it is no longer working. Does anyone know why? When i try to run a program i get the error "Could not launch X Window server:" Even though X11 is open and running.

    I have tried obtaining fixes and new downloads but nothin has worked.

    Don't step into the kawoosh...
    Go and download OpenOffice Aqua. They have a version out now that does not require X11 and it is pretty nice. I have been using it for some of the collaborative work for my college classes and it works great. There are no file differences between the Mac and PC version which is nice.
