[Solved] Path to simpress on MAC Mojave

Postby bhannaman » Tue Jan 28, 2020 4:59 am

I'm helping a MAC user who wants to use OpenOffice Presentation to upload PowerPoint files in Blackboard Collaborate Web Conferencing 12. Collaborate needs the path to simpress.

It auto-populated with /Applications/OpenOffice.app but get message "Open Office is not installed or is not accessible through blackboard. Please check your open office.org installation" and am thinking it needs the path to simpress as that is how it is on Windows and working.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

This is the path on my system.

$ find /Applications -name simpress | head -1
/Applications/OpenOffice.app/Contents/MacOS/simpress

Application packages in OS-X are special folders where name ends with .app extension.
From the command line you can enter those folders like any other.
In Finder you must ctrl+click the app icon (or right click if you have a proper mouse setup) to get the context menu, where you select "view content".
