    I installed it yadda yadda.

    Jeff-Hintzes-Computer:~ jeffhintze$ cd /users/jeffhintze/program
    Jeff-Hintzes-Computer:/users/jeffhintze/program jeffhintze$ ./soffice
    /users/jeffhintze/program/soffice.bin X11 error: Can't open display:
    Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option
    or check permissions of your X-Server
    (See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details)

    I'm missing man pages for "x" and "xhost." Yeah, I'm pretty shi^H^H^H^Hbad with the command line, too. So, I can use some help please?

    edit: Awesome! Thanks, therevolution. :D

    Run /Applications/Utilities/X11, and open OpenOffice from the terminal window that opens up within X11.
