Hi and welcome to Discussions,
which version of Open Office do you use ?
There a some post that OO version 2.4 and prior (which needs X11 to run) seem to no longer work since the Leopard 10.5.5 update.
The Release Candidate 1 (RC1) of OO version 3.0 (which does not need X11 anymore) works for me with OSX 10.5.5
Or you can have a look at NeoOffice http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/en/index.php which also does not need X11 to run.
Seems that the OSX 10.5.5 update did something to X11
thanks for your reply
I am using OO 2.4 and MAC Ops is 10.5.5 - all was working fine til yesterday. I read there was some issue with java run time but have no idea who to check that! There's nothing that looks like JRT in my applications folder but then I am using Iplayer so I suppose Java runtime must be there.
Thanks Stefan - I did resolve the issue by donwloading NeoOffice as you suggested and it works well. However I have not been able to see what version of java I have installed. In Applications I have a folder called System Preferences and not folder called Systems Profiler. In the System Preferences there is no mention of Java.
Sadly I have had no response to my other question on Ipod Nano syncronisation!
System Profiler is an application (not a folder) which should be in the Applications/System Applications folder (at least if I am translating my German OSX correctly to English ).
It's the same folder where you find Disk Utility for example.
Alternatively you can click on the 'Apple-Icon' in the Top-Menu - then choose 'About this Mac' - and then on 'More Information'.
This also opens the System Profiler app.
In the System Profiler window under Software in the left pane - click on Applications and/or Frameworks to see what Java is there.
